The friendly english speaking staff was a nice welcome to our stay in Takayama. This is an older ryokan with the necessary modern ammenities. Our room was quite big and we had western style bathroom. I especially liked that the rooms were smoke free and they had free computer internet. The food was amazing as they used local ingredients for their kaiseki dinner and breakfast.
We were able to walk to the ryokan from the JR station. It was about a 10-15 minute walk. I felt very safe in the city of Takayama and even took a morning jog around town before businesses opened. It's also walking distance (10 mins) to the morning market.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. ... more less
