毎年、ここを訪ねることを目標に自分を磨くことにしている。修善寺温泉街の喧騒に佇む門を一歩中に入るとここまで空気が変わるのかといつも驚く。門から石砂利、玄関。そして玄関越しに能舞台を見た瞬間に帰ってきたことを痛感する。他のどの旅館にもない歴史とそれを誇りに思うスタッフや女将さんの凛とした姿は美しい。
早速、温泉に浸かって寛ぐ。夜の食事は期待を超えたもの。品数も味も料理の質もどれをとっても驚きと感動と次に何が出てくるかを予想する楽しみはお金では買えない最高の時。
深夜の石舞台には鷺が羽根を休めていた。自然の中に埋め込まれていた全てが掘り起こされて来たような自然の力に改めて驚いた。
500年以上の歴史は既に自然と一体としか思えない。ここに関わる人たちは何世代も変わっているはずなのに、この宿が誕生したその日から全てが完璧に変わっていないような錯覚に陥る。
中々泊まれない宿だから是非ともチャレンジして欲しい。
I have decided to reward myself towards my endeavor by staying ASABA ryokan where is about two hours from Tokyo.
The gate cuts off from the noise on the street. Once you come into the gate of ASABA, you will be surrounded by solemnity with heartwarming atmosphere.
All are beyond expectation such as room, hospitality, bath, hot spring, attitudes of staffs, quality of dinner, decoration of dinner etc.
I cannot express all my feelings which I experienced so that please book ASABA and enjoy by yourselves.
ASABA is not merely a Japanese style hotel, Ryoka, but ASABA is ASABA.

A few steps off a side street in Izu one enters the world of Asaba. Zen experience in this luxurious onsen. Super service and lots of ways to take the waters. Catered to our dietary needs perfectly with delicious food. Within 3 hours of leaving Tokyo station you arrive. A few sightseeing things to do during the day but spend as much time as to can in Asaba.

This a top-of-the-range Ryokan. absolutely wonderful. In the 35 years I’ve been visiting Japan this is definitely a place that ranks up with the best I’ve stayed at. It’s been around for hundreds of years and has just had an extensive renovation as it is now in the R&C association. Our room, Fuji, was spacious with a lovely garden view and floor to ceiling windows the width of the room. Private onsen, tatami rooms and traditional futons. We ate dinner in our room both nights, quite a ritual and excellent. The times that men can use the communal onsen were not very practical but there’s also a public onsen (for members) that was also very nice. We really enjoyed our stay and being able to meet the owners.

Staying at a Ryokan is one of the most wonderful experiences for a Westerner. Asaba is one of the top ryokans, which earned this wonderful place a Relais & Chateaux designation. Located on a quiet, one-lane village street, this classic japanese building is scrupulously traditional and clean. You remove your shoes and replae them with slippers upon arrival. Soon afterwards, you remove your Western clothes and replace them with traditional and very comfortable Japanese clothes. Your room is an ample, comfortable suite, with a beautiful view of the pond, waterfall and garden. The sound of the waterfall and surrounding woods and gardens pervades your room and will stay with you during your entire visit. Furniture is minimal, as is the highly selected decor. Service is exquisite, attentive and very discrete. Your bathroom includes a bathtub with warm springwater. Breakfast is typically Japanese, served in the main dining room, by traditionally clad ladies. Dinner, if you hqave it at Asaba, is quite traditional. Each dish is carefully prepared. The selection of sake, beer and wine is just right. The surrounding town is lovely, quaint and quiet. Come here to disconnect from everything, cleanse your sould and body and just relax.

Room tip: Rooms on the second floor have great views of the garden and pond
