We stayed here for 2 nights and regretfully left this morning. Nothing was to much trouble for us by the staff. The service in the restaurant was amazing and the meals were outstanding. I'm glad we waited until this place to try traditional Japanese meals. Yakatas were included, the Onsen was lovely, so much to see around Takayama, really 2...

Arrived early afternoon room was ready so dropped off bags and went exploring before dinner. The main shopping area was about 15 minute walk away, came back went to the public bath, since inn was small, the bath was empty. Dinner was filling carefully prepped with the area specialities. Choice of western or Japanese breakfast. Staff was very attentive.

We stayed in the deluxe room which is very comfortable and big. I really love the decoration of the Deluxe room. There was a traditional Japanese style of heater but we did not use it. The staff are nice and they can communicate with us in English well. We will definitely stay here again when we come to Takayama in...

Asunaro is just beautiful, from the gracious owner and staff, to the gorgeous rooms, the mineral baths, the lovely restaurant and the beautiful decorations throughout the ryokan. It's in a really handy spot, close to the station and to the main shopping area as well as the old part of town. The kaiseki dinner was excellent. I loved this place.

We had a westernized room which had its own bathroom. Nice room, large enough, but if your looking for a view, it's not here. Overlooks parking lot but since we rarely were in the room we just kept blinds shut and it still had a very nice ambience. Bed comfortable and lighting very nice. Staff very friendly and kind.

Beautiful place. Only suggestion is when you make your reservation also book dinner. We arrived after dark and wanted to have dinner there but they were full. The people were very kind and even drove us to the train station because it was raining.

Really enjoyed our 2 night stay at Ryokan Asunaro and our visit to Takayama. It was the last stop on our two week trip to Japan in October, 2016. Starting in big city Tokyo, and ending in historic, small town Takayama was the perfect, total Japan experience. The Ryokan is family owned and you get personal service from the entire...
