The truth is that there are many places to go and explore in Japan. Sometimes it’s best just to give you the best spots to sleep so that you can go with the flow.

While we have some very exciting tools and articles in the works; for the time being, please see this map as a work in progress. It will be updated periodically, and if you find some spots too that you feel should be added, we’d love to hear from you.

I suggest bookmarking this page during your trip and coming back to it as you need.
