WHY WE LOVE THIS HOTEL

  • Ryokan Refinery: Japanese “ryokan” inns represent the oldest style of hotels still in use today. Refined and luxurious to a virtually unparalleled degree, it is clear why they have survived the test of time.
  • Service: The celebrated service on hand at the Asaba Ryokan is a perfect combination of helpful and discrete, something the hotel has perfected over the past few hundred years.   
  • Cuisine: The resort’s delicately crafted dishes are rich with flavor and style alike, engendering a truly unique culinary experience.

DETAILED DECRIPTION

Surrounded by lush gardens and bamboo forest, this first-rate ryokan inn is anchored around a pristine lake and offers indulgent hot spring baths. Founded in the 15th Century, this family-run business remains one of the premiere ryokan inns in Japan. All of its 17 guest rooms feature unique designs while staying true to their timeless, minimalist aesthetics. Meticulously crafted meals are served in accommodations, and the staff unrolls fresh futons every night. There is a stage atop the central pond, a gift to the Asaba Ryokan during the Meiji restoration, that holds performances and an intimate spa. Indoor, outdoor, and private baths give guests the opportunity to bathe in flowing onsen waters, and many rooms are fitted with their own private baths. Service is impeccable and the surroundings are serene.
