Minshuku (Japanese-style guest house) is characterized by providing homely and simple services, and room charge is usually kept low. Guests feel as if they are staying in a rural home. The differences between Ryokan and Pension (resort inn) are, Ryokan is medium to large in size, and has mainly Japanese-style facility including guest rooms, while Pension is small in size, and has mainly western-style facility including guest rooms. Minshuku mainly serve Japanese food including rice for breakfast. On the other hand, Pension mainly serve western food including bread for breakfast. However, the classification between Ryokan and Pension can be vague. In fact, they are both family-run accommodations with similar facility. Some call themselves as Minshuku, while others call themselves as Ryokan or Pension.
