Yoshiike Ryokan – I paid 77,760 Japanese Yen (at the time $708.16 USD) for 1 night for 2 adults, 1 baby and booked it here: (Not Sponsored, but this is an affiliate link)

One of the greatest things about Japanese culture is the idea of minimalism, relaxation, nature, and food. And for a long time now, I’ve really wanted to experience a Japanese ryokan, a traditional inn, that typically includes an onsen (hot spring bath) and meals which are served in your room.

My wife and I were in Tokyo, and on a last spur of the moment decision, I found a ryokan not too far from Tokyo, in the mountains in a place called Hakone. We took the train to Hakone and checked into our ryokan for 1 night.

It was a bit more expensive than I had anticipated, but as I kept on searching, some ryokans were filling up, and then Ying and I really wanted to have the private onsen so I could film and make a video (in the public onsen room, which would be cheaper – I couldn’t film of course!). So we splurged, for the experience, Japanese culture, and the food.

The room was amazing, private onsen, amazing garden view, and traditional Japanese food. In the evening, they brought out multi-course Japanese kaiseki dinner. It included all sorts of regional Japanese food and some of the fanciest food I’ve ever had. Some dishes were good, others a little plain for my liking – but I really appreciated the quality and simplicity.

Staying at a traditional Japanese ryokan and eating luxury Japanese food was really an amazing relaxing and Japanese cultural experience.

  1. Were to normal men making a conversation you're not better than me cuz you make YouTubes and people watch yours why are you giggling every bite you take that food don't look that good it's not a rib-eye steak or a filet mignon it's small little pieces of fish you're making too big of a deal out of it why are you giggling again I got to ask you

  2. Hi Mark. What you ate the strange very salty stuff is "Shiokara". That is made by raw squid. People eat it over the rice because it is too salty. I am glad you enjoyed that Ryokan. Not many people can afford staying in your SPECIAL room even in Japan. I am enjoying watching your video from all over the world. Much LOVE!

  5. Eating Kaiseki really is a unique experience. It is a whole experience. Thats why eating it in a right order is really important. Also on how we eat the dish will affect how the food will taste. Simplicity and complexity, that is Japan culture from my perspective. You are really lucky Mark. This is certainly will be on my bucket list. Thank you for sharing this experience with us ?
