5. Japan Ryokan and Hotel Association

Ryokan in Japanese means the traditional inn. This culture-infused design leads to an extreme simplicity and special elegance that originates from the wooden and bamboo furnishing. Imagine sitting at the Tatami floor, appreciating a cup of boiled matcha tea on the chabudai (low wood table), while your mind is indulgent in the clear raindrop sounds right outside of the shoji (sliding door). No other time else is more peaceful than that moment (Price: from $80).
