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.

畳に座り、浴衣を着て布団で休む。日本の伝統的な生活様式を体験できる旅館は日本を訪れる外国人旅行客から高い評価を受けてきました。

深谷温泉 元湯石屋・孔雀の間

Explore Kanazawa and beyond…

We are pleased to announce a cultural tour to introduce traditional Japanese inns for foreign residents in Japan. On the first day the participants will stay overnight at a ryokan in Kanazawa after taking an afternoon tour with a national licensed English-speaking guide to learn the hidden charms of the castle town.
On the following day the participants and some Ryokan staffs will get on a chartered bus and head to Fukui to visit some tourist attractions with the guide ahead of the extension of the Hokuriku Shinkansen bullet train to Tsuruga, Fukui Pref. in 2024.

We’d like to offer the tour above for free to those who can post about the Ryokan on the social media.
