Japan cultural tour – Be a Ryokan ambassador!

日本在住の外国人向け 旅館の魅力紹介ツアー

Ryokan refers to a Japanese style inn where you sit on “tatami” mats, and where you wear “yukata”, a Japanese style nightgown and sleep in a “futon” bed. You usually eat delicious Japanese food, too.
They have been very popular among tourists from overseas who have great interest in Japanese traditional culture and, in fact, are highly appreciated.
