Although the Westin Miyako Hotel is know for its Heavenly Beds, they provide another room which I think that no one should miss. You can have a Japanese-style hotel room, complete with futons, rice paper walls, a wood tub (there still is a shower, and a nice one), toliet (complete with all technological advances), desk (knee-height), table and chairs (knee height, basically sitting on the floors). The beds are still heavenly, despite that they are folded up each night. Remember to take shoes off in there. It is an experience not to be missed.
