Reservation process and tips

Reservation Process

If you have selected a specific property among our list...

If you have selected a property you would like to stay in from our list, please click the icon at the end of each accomodation page. A reservation request form will appear for you to fill in some basic information. At this stage, reservation is not completed*. When your request reaches Michi Travel, we will check with the property if a room is available and get back to you by e-mail. When booking is completed, we will notify you the URL of the website for payment. This website is highly secure using a high-level SSL technology.

*We do not use an online reservation method for a variety of reasons. First of all, some ryokan's do not have an online reservaon system. In addition, some have only a few English-speaking staffs. Also, by filling the reservation request, we can let the ryokan know of your specific needs (e.g. meal requests such as vegetarian, your arrival time, view from the room)

If you have just a general idea of your accommodation option...

If you have a general idea of the kind of accomodation you are looking for, but cannot choose one in particular, you can consult one of our staffs by e-mailing us. Please provide us some infomation using this form . We will make some recommendations by e-mail.

Reservation Tips

- Make a reservation in advance.  All of the properties we recommend are very popular. Particularly if you are planning to stay on weekends or holiday seasons, please make a reservation well in advance.

- Please let us know your requests to the ryokan in detail. We can tell the ryokan in advance and find a solution for it in order for you to have a comfortable and memorable stay.
