“The smell of tatami, the atmosphere in this centuries-old house, to walk around in a kimono, sleeping on the ground… It’s something special.”

When in Japan, you just have to sleep in a traditional Japanese ryokan. Dozen ryokan in Kyoto consists of rooms made of rice paper walls and tatami mats, a common bath and some other public areas. In the room you sleep on a futon, a folded thin mattress. It’s like a thick blanket, actually. Shoes are taken off at the door and in the room a yukata can be found, a bathrobe that is related to the kimono. Bathrooms and toilets are shared with other guests. It’s such a delighted place, you can feel the history in here.

Dozen Ryokan is over a hundred years old and the building is beautiful. It’s an amazing, local experience.
