Top Ten Luxury
The Ryokan Collection

Rice paper screen and futons on the floor and serenity at its best are what is offered in this hand-picked collection of 30 traditional Japanese inns. The idea of 'omotenashi', hospitality with the special Japanese attention to every little detail has survived for over 1,000 years in traditional inns that  in essence have changed little in that time. Adherence to the importance of symbolism and simplicity remains important, however luxurious the trappings. New to the collection are Ryokan-Kurashiki, originally the home of a rich sugar merchant, and L'hotel Du Lac on the shores of Lake Biwa.
