So you’ve booked some cheap flights to Japan, and now you need to plan the rest of your trip? Here’s a selection of hand-picked beautiful holiday houses you can rent.

Staying in a Ryoken (a Japanese Inn) will give you a traditional Japanese experience but these are often expensive. However you can find plenty of apartments to rent throughout Japan, starting from $96/night. All prices quoted include cleaning fees and service charges if applicable.

If you want other budget travel ideas, listen to my podcast episode, where I chat to Associate Professor of Linguistics, Nathaniel Rudolph who has lived in Japan for many years and he also gives solid advice on how to become fluent in Japanese.

The most important attraction in Kyoto, especially in Summer.

Dates and prices are based on travel in June but can search your own dates, cities and places right here:

Why should I click on links or buy from this site?
Hi, I’m Jade Jackson, Writer|Podcaster| Photographer.
Making a living as an independent creative is challenging, but I also have a lifetime of travel knowledge to share from the travel industry; however it also costs real money to keep this website going. In conjunction with my podcast – Jade Talks Travel, I aim to make independent travel easier by providing a single place, to be inspired, and then book any aspect of your journey.

By clicking on links provided on my website, Such as here and here, and then making a booking; those large corporations pay a small commission back to me. It’s not much (and it doesn’t cost you any extra, in many cases I’ve found cheaper deals for you), but sites like, Expedia,,, Book depository (owned by Amazon) etc are global corporate behemoths, that can afford to slide a few dollars my way, so by booking or making purchases via my site, you’re helping to keep this website going, and ensuring an independent creative can keep producing more of the content you love. You can read more on this page.

There are other ways you can help this site (and me); you can buy my books or photographs, or check out this page. If you have questions, contact me or view my privacy policy.

I’m just one guy, trying to make the world a better place, through travel, so thank you. ☺️
