Live like the Japanese with a stay in an apartment or traditional house

Immerse yourself in Japanese life by staying in a self-catering apartment rather than a hotel. Ideal for stays of 5 nights or more, these are available in Tokyo, Kyoto, Nagoya, Osaka and other major cities throughout Japan and offer more space, more convenience and better value for money that conventional hotel stays.

Apartments are modern and clean and located close to subway stations making it easy to get around.

Your apartment will typically comprise a living room, combined dining room & kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. Television, air-conditioning, washing machine and cooking utensils come as standard and there is always a convenience store nearby for ingredients should you wish to eat in! Larger  apartments feature multiple bedrooms with en-suite options and are ideal for family stays.

In Kyoto there is also the option of staying in a Machiya style traditional town-house - wooden buildings in one of the older areas of the city. What better way to experience the ancient capital city?

Okayama prefecture meanwhile has a number of "International Houses" which are traditional houses suitable for families or large groups and located in rural villages.

Whatever style you opt for an apartment stay is well worth considering should you wish to spend a length of time in one destination within Japan.
