Asunaro Inn is a traditional style building made of 200-year-old materials brought from the historic Echigo area of Niigata Prefecture. I welcome foreign tourists to my inn with our warm hospitality and homely atmosphere, and I would like them to learn about Japanese traditions, culture, and cuisine. Whenever you come to Takayama, please consider Asunaro Inn as your premier choice. Thank you very much. The building where the lobby is used to be an old landlord's house in the village on the mountain of Niigata prefecture and is built with thick Keyaki wood. This house was built without nails to withstand the high humidity and 4-5 meters of snow the area receives. Our lobby has a great reputation because it displays the consistency, simplicity, and serenity of the Japanese architecture style. We will preserve this cultural site. We are sure that all our guests will be pleased with the beauty of the old Japanese architecture. We promise you will feel relaxed and at home.

Best place to stay in our 2 weeks in Japan. Really nice ryokan with a lot of little touches that make it a wonderful experience. The owners are super friendly and very accommodating. The onsen was a little small but we were the only ones there so it’s more than adequate.

Dinner lasted about 1 hour. All the food were on the table. Just need to start the fire and cook. Most of the items are ready to eat immediately while waiting for the soupy items and raw beef to be cook. Dinner came with hotel package.

Hello! I wanted to update this thread and mention that I got an official response from Ryokan Asunaro. They said it is not a problem for foreigners. They welcome foreigners with tattoos. :)

"Room 201 (delux)"
"We used both the onsen and the private bath, and we didn't miss having a private in-room shower at all."
"All should be ok. This Ryokan is at a reasonably quiet area of town."
"We had a car park view but just closed the blinds!"
"If you prefer a shower in your room, book early - but don't let it be a knock-out factor (not that inconvenient really)."
$173 - $387 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
