On JAPANiCAN.com, a wide variety of room types are offered at many of the hotels and ryokan (Japanese-style inns) available for booking on the site. Please find descriptions of common room types below.

Japanese-style Rooms
Depending on the hotel or inn, rooms listed as "Japanese-style" can range from the heavily traditional to the chic modern, though most Japanese-style rooms on the site tend towards traditional. Look forward to tatami mat floors, clean, minimalist design, and traditional futon for bedding. Japanese-style rooms often consist of various clearly delineated "parts", such as a foyer, a main room, and a sitting room. For more information, please check the details of each room.

Japanese/Western-style Rooms
These rooms are a combination of both Japanese and Western, typically featuring a tatami mat portion and a portion that is carpeted or wood floored. Bedding may vary from futon on the tatami mat area to Western-style beds.  For more information, please check the details of each room.
