[ユース ホステル link] Japan Youth Hostels Inc.

Because many Japanese people may not have the idea of staying at hostels, you may find youth hostels may be more international environemt. Rescently, the Japanese hostels divide the rooms or buildings into two for the gender so that they are becoming more popular among Japanese youth than before. Many motorcycle travelers or surfers in Japan traditionally prefer to staying hostels so these are used to be located along the highways or by the sea. Now the locations are spreading to different areas because of the populality. Some youth Hostels provide 送迎, too. So ask them if it is available.
