Takayama Ryokan

Oh my god. So here I was thinking that a night in a traditional Japanese hotel would be like a scene from Mulan or Memoirs of a Geisha but I was taken by surprise. The loveliest, most adorable Japanese women greeted us at this amazing “Ryokan” (旅館) in Takayama called Tanabe. 

We had a traditional tea ceremony, were served dinner, got shown how to make our futons and then had a Japanese bath (温泉). It went by so quickly but if you are going to Japan, I would highly recommend spending at least 2 nights in a ryokan. I didn’t take many photos but just look at this incredible meal they served us!!!! Only for two people!!! おなかが早くていっぱいImage

The morning after our filing meal, we ate our once again filling breakfast and then headed to cute markets. I bought a sick wooden owl necklace and got ¥100 taken off the price for being the first customer of the day!!!!
