“Thermal baths in the Japan of legends”
Maître de Maison - Kazuhide Asaba
It is said that the great teacher of Japanese Buddhism, Kobo Daishi, bathed every morning in the river Katsura and emerged purified. A few minutes from this river, the hotel Asaba submerges you in the Japan of legends: traditional “Noh” theatre performed by the riverside. After a game of golf in picturesque surroundings, leave your kimono behind and enjoy the pleasures of an open-air bath filled with spring water. The restaurant serves traditional dishes with delightful combinations of sweet and savoury flavours. In the lounge, relax in a chair designed by famous Italian-American Harry Bertoia and in the garden, be inspired by the sweet fragrances of nature.

Unique in the world: Traditional “noh” theatre performed by the riverside.

Transmitting ancestral culture to future generations.

A harmony of flavour, colour and texture… The Kaiseki dinner uses only local produce for a gastronomic alchemy of great precision. You can here the sound of a few notes of music from the Noh theatre of the property, created 150 years ago, that whispers as night falls. Sumptuous costumes, intriguing masks, an orchestra, a choir, the show can begin! Throughout the year, this Ryokan offers its guests gastronomic and cultural traditions, ensuring their transmission to future generations. This way, the past is more than just legend.
