weekly photo challenge: room

Posted on Updated on

A ryokan is a traditional Japanese inn. On first entry into the room – there is no bed. While guests are out of an evening, the house keeping will sneak in and prepare the futon on the tatami mat flooring.

This was our room in a ryokan in Hakone, Japan. Surprisingly, it was a very comfortable sleep we had!
