From the welcoming hosts and traditional meals, Asunaro was our special sanctuary while we visited the lovely town of Takayama. I could not believe how large the room was. Touches such as the tea pot above the fire pit in our room were charming - as well as making for a great photo op. Helpful English guide sheets for bath... More

Best ryokan during our stay in Japan. Lovely building and very attentive hosts. There was a kid youdaka and my daughter could borrow a kimono for the local festival from the hosts. Nice indoor onsen. Highly recommended

We stayed at hostels mostly during our trip, but decided to spend a bit more to get the ryokan experience. While searching & booking, I wanted something traditional but also with the convenience of an in-town location. This ryokan met all my expectations. The old wood structure was beautiful. The room was spacious and they upgraded us to the room... More

Takayama is off the main Tokyo-Kyoto tourist corridor, and well worth a visit. When there, be sure to experience this exquisite Ryokan which, as other reviewers have noted, is more like a museum than a lodging. Converted from an old farmhouse, much of the original structure remains. The best room is 201, which has a separate sitting room with fireplace... More

This ryokan is all the things a Japanese ryokan usually is. Clean, efficient, well appointed and run by a wonderful staff. The ryokan is very well located and it is almost impossible to resist the charm and romance of this facility. The main lobby area is more beautiful than many museums. Not much to complain about here. It might not... More

After a very friendly welcom in this typical Japanese hotel, we were even more surprised about our accomodation. We were aware of the fact that we would sleep on the floor on so-called Tatani's, but our room had an open little fire place, and a place where we could even sit and watch TV. We did have our own bathroom... More

Conveniently located just 10 minutes walk from Takayama rail station, this beautiful, traditional ryokan wows you from the moment you enter. The ryokan foyer houses a stunning irori hearth which guests can kneel around and sip tea. Staff are courteous and welcoming. Rooms are on the larger side by Japanese standards, well laid out, clean and comfortable. If you are... More

We stayed for four nights at this utterly charming Ryokan. Our room was really spacious, with a bathroom and separate tea room with traditional Japanese hearth. Service, which included Japanese or Continental breakfast was superb and welcoming. The location is convenient for all the attractions of Takayama. Highly recommended. Ned C
