Traditional Japanese Ryokan Japanese Garden
Cherry blossoms, weeping apricots, leaves of autumn, mountain peonies, rhododendrons, flowering dogwoods... Each is arranged beautifully in its own unique way in the Japanese garden. Experience the changing seasons at Yasui.

A calming atmosphere leading to a Japanese yado that resonates with tradition and the drifting scent of wood. Preserving the relics of the Ōshōya, the grand headman, like the irori hearth, the tatami that lay or the corridor where so many people cross paths, echo through centuries of tradition and history. It is here that you can feel the gentle flow of time.

Crossing over the beautiful stone setts of the Japanese garden, and stepping into the building you enter a refined and rich Japanese atmosphere. Fall in love with the beautiful antique artworks and the facilities that change to suit the season.

The food was very delicious and was beautiful to look at as well. The place's bedding was also quite comfortable and I slept well. I had a very nice trip thanks to the kindness of the staff and the landlady. I'd like to come visit again in yet another season, for sure. Thank you very much. + More
The stay was amazingly comfortable. I'd like to stay here again.
We stayed together as a group of three with our daughter over her spring break on a weekday. Approaching its peaceful outlook, there's a spacious Japanese style room with a well curated garden, and with the spirit of the season resonating through the facilities in the room, it's a very peaceful resort with a pure Japanese style that is rare nowadays. The room staff were also well mannered their service was very polite, we were favourably impressed. What really shone through was the food! Being a historic cuisine resort, the table ware was great. The foods were gentle and were arranged beautifully. We were impressed by the attentiveness to even the littlest things such as the garnishing as well. We were also delighted by how they responded so pleasantly when we suddenly changed our order or ordered an additional dish. I feel sake-lovers will also be satisfied here as the place has quite a wide range of Japanese sake and wine as well. Even the breakfast and everything was quite high-grade and refined, it was quite satisfying. The bathrooms etc. were also attentively kept, and were clean and hygienic. I think there were around two groups of guests on that weekday. I wonder if that's why the AC was not in use for the bath in the evening, it got quite chilly, I had to find the switch myself to turn on the AC. I think the hotel must know round about when the customers mostly use it, so it'd be nice if they could let the bath house get warm before-hand. I really liked it there, I'd love to come again, and I'd also like to recomend it to my friends and family! + More
The interiors were really beautiful and had a posh feeling. The rooms that we were given were two Japanese style adjoining rooms that were really spacious, and were able to relax comfortably. The furnishings were also of impressive quality, it was quite a calm atmosphere. The garden viewed from the rooms was also beautiful, and coupled with the well-lit spacious interiors it gives you a nice sense of liberation. Meals are in-room and the experience really lives up to the feeling of enjoying food at a Ryōtei. The cuisine was so delicious, it was like none of the Japanese food I'd had so far. From the ingredients, the seasoning, to the bowls that the food was served in, everything was satisfying. Even the quantity wasn't too much or too less, it was just the right amount to make one satisfied. The Ōmi Roast Beef was also the best, so tasty. The communal bath isn't that big, but thanks to there also being an open-air bath one can relax and have a nice time bathing. The staff members were also very well mannered and polite, and it felt very secure being in their care with their hospitality towards all guests. At Yasui, where we stayed this time, everything feels posh, I reckon the place is exceptionally well suited for new year vacation trips. + More
