- Traditional Japanese art and culture often emphasizes harmony with nature, and Yoshimizu offers the pinnacle of accomodations that follow this philosophy. Located in the popular Ginza shopping district, this bed and breakfast is the perfect setting for those who want a truly Japanese experience. Guests sleep on tatami mats in an austere but wonderfully traditional setting that is instantly recognizable as distinctly Japanese. Adding to this atmosphere are two shared traditional stone baths, located on the upper floor. In keeping with its naturalistic philosophy, Yoshimizu offers none of the usual electronic amenities, but the tatami mats are 100% organic cotton, and the building itself is constructed of carefully considered materials, including thick-stemmed bamboo flooring and diatomaceous earth walls. To top all this off, all rooms include a traditional daily breakfast made from local organic vegetables, meat and fish. Dinner is also available but requires a separate reservation in advance.
