I have never been a big fan of baths or onsen (hot springs), both of which are very popular in Japan. So I've always avoided staying at ryokans (Japanese style inns featuring hot spring baths and traditional Japanese meals). Decided to give one a try recently and actually enjoyed it. The one we stayed at included several hot spring baths, both public and private, and our meals were served in our room. We spent an entire day just taking baths, eating, and relaxing.
