Very good traditional Ryokan in Hida Takayama. They serve a great Japanese and western breakfast and has a very friendly staff. The ryokan is within walking distance from the station. A great day trip from Takayama is to take the bus (busses) to Kamikochi for a hike.

Close enough to walk to from the train station, we found this ryokan friendly and comfortable. The entrance way welcomes you into the more traditional part of the building where the hosts take the necessary time to explain all the things guests need to know. One of the more interesting features of the Asumaro is that the rooms are located... More

We stayed at this Japanese Inn for three days and were very satisfied indeed. I thought Takayama was, unlike its good reputation, not as old and beautiful as the towns like Kiyoto and Nara. The town was filled with tourists in April and the shops were too much tourists orientated. But this Ryokan gave us relaxed and quiet time, sitting... More

We stayed here with tour guests and all of us enjoyed our stay. The hosts are very friendly and helpful and the rooms are lovely and include a toilet and handbasin, There is a private shower room that can be booked but otherwise it is expected you will shower and soak in the onsen. The free espresso coffee available in... More

We did not expect much of a ryokan, as it was our first time at this kind of a hotel. It was a big surprise to find out how nice can such a place be. It starts with the real care they show to make you feel home. The room has all the traditional ameniteis and its very comfertable. The... More

Near the station and Old town. First of all, you do have a "bathroom" in your room. It's a toilet and wash sink/vanity. You don't have a shower or tub in your room because there's a full Onsen downstairs. My wife was relieved to discover that. Great experience with yakutas, Onsen, and Japanese rooms. Meals are served in a very... More

From the outside the front building is very original but the rooms are located in an average looking 3 storey 1950s brick building. The rooms are good but it's a disappointment thinking you are going to savour the local "flavour" and ending up with something less. Their website is blatantly dishonest.

A good place for family experiencing a ryokan vacation. Young adult will be very happy with the experience of wearing a Japanese bathing robe which was given to every guest. Hospitality Japanese reception which explained every details of the ryokan facility. The cosy and well decorated ryokan does not extend to the room . I believe this is the way... More

At the beginning we thought its a bit too touristic but in the end we were really glad that the staff spoke English and that they had an additional heating in the tatami room (which is traditionally not usual). The Japanese breakfast was very (almost too) authentic but there is also a Western alternative. The onsen is very nice and... More

Pleasant two night stay here, Takayama is a beautiful place to visit and Asunaro is nice to come back to. We didn't have the evening meals but the breakfast is very Japanese if you don't take the Western option. Make sure you like fish and tofu if this is the case!
