Suzenji, Shizuoka

  Asaba has remained a family business for over 520 years, since our ancestors opened a guesthouse while serving as temple guards at the gate of Shuzen-ji Temple.
 Our Noh stage dates back to the Maeda clan in feudal times when this area was part of Kaga Province, and was moved to its current location in the middle of the pond with mountains in the background during the Meiji period (1868–1912). We regularly host public performances by first-rate performers such as Noh actor Tetsunojo Kanze, Kyogen performers Mansaku and Mansai Nomura, and Shinnai performer Nakasaburo Shinnai.
 After a soak in our free-flowing hot spring water sourced onsite, we recommend relaxing in our lounge while taking in the scenery of the pond, or donning your yukata robe and walking on our riverside bamboo forest path to Shuzen-ji Temple. Our cuisine features an abundance of ingredients from the beautiful seas of the Izu Peninsula and the land fed by snowmelt from Mount Fuji, and we take care to honor traditions as we create evening and morning meals for you to enjoy in your guest room.
 We have evolved along with the times even as we strive to preserve the image and atmosphere befitting a traditional Japanese inn. As the longest standing member of Relais & Châteaux in Japan, we continue to share
Japanese hospitality, "omotenashi" with guests from around the world.
