While this hotel is a beautiful place in beautiful scenery, the room seemed to be a little expensive for what we received in terms of what we were lead to believe from photos on sites advertising this hotel. Apart from this, customer service was excellent and the food was delicious.

Visited Asaya with my family over the o-bon summer vacation. Despite being peak season, very full, and very expensive, we were extremely happy with the experience. It is a big hotel, so plenty of space, and it never felt crowded. The Asaya staff actually cares about its guests, really takes pride in everything they do, cheerful and happy, oozing with... More

Hot springs and dinner is what you will be focusing. Very tidy and followed by over 80 kinds of food will leave you feeling over the moon. It is situated in a quiet area and you will just love it. Comfortable futon mattress is simply amazing

This is a massive, middle class, japanese tourist hotel. Faded and cheapish. If that's your sort of thing, great. If not - be warned. My suggestion: find a smaller, cheaper hotel, and pay for your Onsen on a per visit basis.

My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at the Asaya Hotel. It's quite readily accessible (bus from bus stop 3 and it's a quick 5 min ride. Costs 180 yen per pax) from Kinugawa Onsen station. The rooms are big, the onsens are enjoyable and of great variety (esp the roof-top ones and they swap and onsens daily so that... More

We decided on the Asaya after reading various reviews and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is very clean and modern including the hot spring baths which we really enjoyed. We booked the buffet meals with the room and was very impressed with the variety and quality of the food which was mostly Japanese; the dinner buffet is outstanding. We... More

If you want the taste of a "traditional" Japanese inn (ryokan) and the convenience of a modern hotel, this hotel is for you. My family and I stayed here in the summer of 2013, and we enjoyed immensely. We stayed in a standard tatami room. it was very clean and provided plenty of room for 5 of us. The room... More

After extensive research on different hot spring hotels & ryokans in Kinugawa, we decided on Asaya. We're very glad we went with them. For those unfamiliar with this area, Kinugawa is a little ways apart from Nikko but still within the vicinity (and within easy access of each other by train) so that it makes sense to visit Nikko and...
