We were travelling during busy period, hence we could not get reserved seat on shinkansen and could only arrive late at night. When we arrived, the first question that the staff asked was, "have you had your dinner?". When we said we have not, she showed us the restaurants map and told us which restaurants that are still open. We... More

Executive room was large and spacious with seperate bath and toilet areas . The kiseki dinners were good and offered variety. Though the onsen was not good, it was a nice place to stay with friendly service.

Checking for 2 nites. The owners and most of staffs are able to communicate in English, helps in getting direction. The place is spacious and very clean. The owners are friendly and approachable. I saw the owner arranging the customers' shoes so it looks neat and accident free, that tells a lot about the hotel. Surprise to find and indoor... More

Checked in for 2 nights at Asunaro in Takayama. The receptionist pointed out that Takayama had a interesting light up festival along the historical streets, which was very atmospheric at night all lit up. Had a great stay, the ryokan within walking distance to all the major attractions. Bath times relatively restricted to morning and night, but ryokan had nice... More

A very lovely ryokan about 10 minutes' walk from Takayama JR station. The hosts were a lovely couple. There was another girl who greeted us when we arrived and she was full of smiles. Their hospitality and service were impeccable. We enjoyed our three nights stay at the ryokan and the lovely onsen bath. The onsen bath is not big,... More

Ryokan Asunaro welcomed our party of 4 adults, 1 boisterous 3 year old and a 2 month old bub with open arms. We were made to feel welcome throughout our stay and effort was definitely made to accommodate us and the young kids. As far as first impressions go, you are treated to a sight the moment you enter Ryokan... More

First, and only, time we have stayed in a Ryokan. It was all we expected and more. 10 minute walk from station . From the moment we arrived the whole experience was relaxed and peaceful. We left our shoes at the door and stepped into a beautifully decorated Ryokan. Staff at desk spoke good English and check in was easy.... More

The trip started well as the owner was really kind and helpful and picked us up from the restaurant since it was raining. However, loads of rules when you enter the ryonkan, check out time is ridiculous at 10 am!! Room was spacious but not extremely clean, and price was way too expensive.

For who?: English-speakers looking for a place to stay to have a very traditional Japanese experience in terms of environment, lifestyle, and food. Summary: As a long-time fan of ryokans whom had never lived in one, i am grateful that Asunaro was my first experience. It had the traditional feel I was searching for, it was worth my money, and...
