Looking for inns in Japan? Found mainly in resort areas, a Minshuku is similar to inns/hostels. On the other hand, economy hotels such as Toyoko Inn (locations are available in Shinjuku, Shinagawa, Asakusa, etc) are used for business or short stay. You may find coupons for these hotels that give you an even better offer. A quick digression- There is popular Japanese restaurant called Japan Inn in Weston FL where you can have sushi and Japanese fusion.
