Market Watch - Japan

“Japan’s most beautiful ryokans invite you to do absolutely nothing”

“Village ryokan are often rustic, centuries-old wood and paper buildings, set around mineral-rich hot springs that bubble out of Japan’s mountainous volcanic backbone. These springs, known as onsen, have been celebrated for millennia for their health properties. These can be physical — some waters are especially good for arthritis, others for the skin — but a soak in any hot spring imparts a sense of tranquility to those lucky enough to partake.” – Stephanie d’Arc Taylor, CNN
