Across the Archipelago Cool Hotels in Japan Await You

The archipelago runs for more than 3000kms, a diverse land from the snowcapped mountains of the north to the tropical beaches of the south, and there are some very cool hotels in Japan that the Secret Retreats team is dying to share with you. The 5 largest and most inhabited islands of Japan are, going north to south, Hokkaido, Honshu, Shikoku, Kyushu and Okinawa which is located 400miles south of Kyushu. Cool hotels in Japan, whether small luxury boutique hotels or traditional family managed inns, can be found all over the islands from ultra-modern cities to ancient royal cities where the architecture of the city and traditions of the people has remained unchanged in centuries. Japan’s best boutique hotels are always found in the most uniquely fascinating locations and often off the beaten path. A holiday in Japan staying in the traditional ryokan, boutique hotels and design hotels Japan style is, we think, the best way to experience the real Japan and really connect with the local people and their culture. With a land that spans 3000kms and more, there is a rich diversity of cultures across this enchanting country. Such a diverse land is best enjoyed on a Japan travel itinerary as planned by travel professionals with excellent and comprehensive local knowledge on how to experience each destination, the best places to stay, the best places to dine, and the best places to visit - and all without ‘best’ meaning expensive. At Secret Retreats our community is made up of local experts in travel and boutique hoteliers, essentially local people, who are looking to share their favourite places and secret spots with you when you stay in their traditional ryokan and boutique hotels in Japan. This is the Secret Retreats difference, when your book a travel itinerary or boutique hotel stay with us, we share the secrets of our community of boutique hoteliers and travel professionals with you, to share the best of our Asian home destinations with you during your stay with us.
