Neighbors roommates night time very noisy
The extremely helpful and friendly staff. Lovely to learn about Japanes culture and food. Loved the Onsen's. It was a lovely relaxing stay.
We loved our stay at Aso no Shiki. Unfortunately we got lost finding the place even though using navigation system in the car as well as google maps. We overshot the venue, we were looking for a road however the road was more like what we would call a lane way so we got confused. Once we overshot the venue the navigation system got confused too. However, we did find our way. It was fantastic. The staff were so friendly and even though we spoke almost no Japanese and they spoke limited English, we got on very well. We had booked for both breakfast and dinner. Dinner was traditional Japanese food and was great, we dressed in the Japanese yukata and jacket they gave us and sat in the dining room cooking our own meal over a fire in the middle of the table. The other guests mainly dressed in the gowns too which added to the pleasant experience. We cooked fish, chicken and beef and had miso soup and various side dishes. Oishii (delicious). As was breakfast which included various Japanese dishes as well as an egg cooked in a small pot over a candle. After dinner we washed in one of the private Japanese bathrooms and then soaked in the associated outdoor heated pool/bath. So relaxing. Our beds were traditional Japanese and close to the floor, which we managed very well and had a very comfortable night. The room had a traditional Japanese table and chairs, also close to the floor, and we were welcomed with some Japanese treats. The room had it's own private toilet and sink. We didn't always know what we were doing (our first time in a ryokan) but the staff helped us out, we had a bit of a laugh with them, and overall we had a lovely stay. I would definitely go there again.
When we couldn't find the venue easily we kept looking for the front as pictured on booking.com. Eventually we stopped in a car park where we thought the venue was and wandered around a bit to try to find the front. The venue is actually up on the next level from the lower car park where we stopped, and to the left. We couldn't see the front until we went searching. It would be nice if there was a picture of the location from the road.
Friendly staff. Good location.
They only played one song of Kenny G the entire time. No futon.
The staff were extra helpful and very kind and helped us with a problem. The hotel had beautiful flower arrangements and lots of beautiful polished wood.
