How could you explain these Japanese things that tourists might come across? Write descriptions with the structure “… is similar to… but more…/…. er”, for example “A ryokan is similar to a hotel but more traditional”, adding more information if you like, e.g. “… and you usually sleep on futons”.

Ask for other teams’ suggestions for any you couldn’t explain or couldn’t explain well.
