Why A Japanese Ryokan Should Be Your Next Travel Destination

Why A Japanese Ryokan Should Be Your Next Travel Destination on Local Milk Blog with Guest Poster Crista Priscilla

Hello! I am Crista Priscilla, a writer, and photographer based in Tokyo. I am passionate about exploring and discovering the lesser-known parts of Japan and sharing the journey through my InstagramLast winter, I found one of the most beautiful rotenburo (hot mineral outdoor bath) nestled among the lush frosty forest of the Aga region of Niigata — one of the most unexplored areas in Japan. To be there and to stay in that old quaint ryokan was truly a humbling opportunity to experience Japanese winter in an exceptional way. It’s a joy to be able to share why a Japanese ryokan should be your next travel destination to the Local Milk readers, and I hope it’ll inspire you to travel deeper and to opt for the road less traveled because what awaits will surely be rewarding.

Here are a few thoughts on high impact, minimal investment updates that support our homes this season.
