A ryokan is a traditional Japanese inn where the floors are typically tatami mats and the rooms are separated with sliding shōji doors. And Hotel Sakan in Sendai is one of the best.
Just an hour and a half ride from Tokyo on the Japan's Shinkansen (the bullet train) you will find the city of Sendai. It is the capital city of the Miyagi Perfecture and a gem that sometimes gets overlooked. Sendai is the largest city in the Tōhoku region of Japan and is full of cultural monuments, unique foods and vibrant city lights.
