Let me introduce you the accommodation and a few more of Japan in this blog of mine.
I will simply comment on those as much as possible!
What is Ryokan, Minshuku and Pension?
Ryokan are traditional Japanese inns with the outward appearance of an ordinary house.
These days, however, modern ferroconcrete buildings are being seen more and more. Whatever the outward appearance, though, the interior is designed in the traditional Japanese style, and rates usually include breakfast and supper.
Minshuku are private homes that offer overnight accommodations.
Minshuku are basically small inns, and as such they are certified by the public health office.
Bussiness hotel （ビジネスホテル）
Business hotels are Western-style, minimum service hotels that cater primarily but not exclusively to people traveling on business.
They are usually found in urban centers and are relatively cheap.
Simply, it is a budget hotel.
Pension are moderately-priced, Continental-style inns.
They are operated privately and offer a homey atmosphere and home cooking.
Pensions are usually located in mountain and lake resort areas.
Capsule hotel (カプセルホテル）
Capsule hotels offer minimum overnight accommodations.
Consisting of a simple capsule rather than a room, they are much cheaper than ordinary hotels.
The main clients of capsule hotels are office workers who are too busy to go home or who missed the last train.
What is Geisha, and Ama?
Geisha are kimono-clad female entertainers trained in the traditional arts, singing, dancing, and conversation who serve as party companions and hostesses.
Ama are the professional female divers who gather pearl oysters, lobster, abalone, and other shellfish without the use of diving gear.
Thank you so much for reading.
