This luxurious ryokan complex was first built in 1675, and despite its sleek modernized décor, it still retains a strong traditional Japanese aesthetic. The complex is surrounded by a bamboo forest and overlooks a vast pond, a beautiful setting in which guests can bathe, relax and eat freshly-prepared seasonal meals in perfect tranquility.
Just across from Asaba stands a Noh theatre which is definitely worth a visit for guests interested in maximizing their exposure to Japanese culture during their stay.
