I absolutely love this charming ryokan. The room was very clean. I didn't get to stay in a room with an attached bathroom, but the common shower was clean and the indoor onsen was great. The owner was very friendly and helpful and his mother was the most adorable and charming japanese lady; she made us little japanese key chain... More

Immediately felt welcomed at this wonderful, cosy Japanese inn. Located conveniently for train station (5-10 mins walk) and near takayama's old town. Rooms are clean and very cute. This is the second time to stay at a ryokan and the first time we found rooms could get cold at night but not at ryokan asunaro. Very well heated and comfortable!

I found this an excellent place to stay. The owners are very friendly and helpful. I would especially like to thank them for the following: My companion and I arrived very late after being held up by an unexpected crises in Tokyo. We were traveling by train and got to the Asunaro tired and hungry at about 8.30 in the... More

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
