Our stay in Ryokan Asunaro was a perfect compliment to the whole experience of beautiful Takayama. Friendly staff, well versed in English. Clean, quiet, and comfortable traditional rooms. It was my wife and my first experience on staying in a Ryokan so we really have no basis for comparison. But the location within Takayama is quite good, (a 5 minute... More

We spent 3 weeks in Japan on our honeymoon, we were not disappointed with our stay at Asunaro Ryokan. We were provided with a fantastic traditional room which was very comfortable and quiet ... I am addicted to futons after this stay! The premises provided onsite Onsen facilities, free bicycle usage, and we thoroughly enjoyed giving their traditional breakfast and... More

I've stayed at Asunaro many times and have always loved it. The owners are incredibly friendly and helpful and will always make sure you are well looked after. If you're worried about staying in a Ryokan and all the procedures, then this is the perfect place. There are english explanations everywhere so you can never go wrong. The location is... More

We stayed one night at Ryokan Asunaro for my birthday and would definitely stay there again. Let me start with one of the biggest pluses: EVERY room is non-smoking. Style: The entrance and lobby are really quite traditional; all dark wood with an old-fashioned fireplace. Staff: Welcoming and no complaints. Room: I had asked for a quiet room which they... More

Stayed 2 nights in a family suite. The room was clean, large, and typically fashioned in traditional style. It's located in walking distance from the train station (maybe several minutes easy walk). There are many eateries within walking distance. Staff are friendly and attentive. The onsen was enjoyed by all.

We have just left Ryokan Asunaro after a 3 night stay. The accommodation was excellent staying in an irori room with it's own fire place, more like a suite. This is really why we came to Japan - to have an authentic experience, having spent 3 nights (B&B) and also having had a great dinner upon arrival the hosts ensured... More

I think the few negative reviews listed are quite unfounded. First off, as a destination, Takayama is quite a prize. It's a quiet town that understands the value of fine service and hospitality. If the Hida beef and the incredible local sake and beer do not delight you, the Asunaro will with its wonderful home cooked food. This ryokan, decorated... More

I stayed as part of an Intrepid trip during December and found the accommodation very pleasant. There are traditional touches throughout. The open hearth in reception with cooking pot created a lovely homely feel. The rooms themselves are large with a seating area which can be screened off. The group onsen didn't look very welcoming. Highlight would have to be... More

If you are planning to visit and stay in Takayama, I highly recommend Ryokan Asunaro. Located within a 5-8 minute walk from the train station, it is conveniently situated and close to the Sanmachi area as well. This ryokan is clean and decorated with Japanese antiques. It is very foreigner friendly and the proprietress speaks good English. If you want... More

We went there for 2 nights. Friendly staff, very nice lobby, large rooms it was very pleasant. 10 mn from the train station. Not in the heart of Takayama but not far away. We didńt try the food ( my wife hating japanese food) but they recommended us good restaurants. Not cheap as usual with ryokans (150€/night) but worth the... More
