The most famous ryokan in Kanazawa, this authentic 19th-century inn combines the feel of a private gallery with an intimate family home. An impressive collection of Edo-era sword guards, ornate scrolls, paintings and antiques can be found throughout the property, which exudes tranquillity and offers some of the most personalised service you will find in Japan. The ryokan offers just five rooms, classically minimalist in feel but with fine furniture, tatami flooring, shoji doors and private 'tsubo' (ornamental inner garden).
Asadaya is perfectly positioned for a stroll to the city's top sights which include the Omicho food market and the stunning Kenroku-en landscaped gardens, but ensure you are back in time for dinner - it is a real event. The Kaga kaiseki multi-course menu is based around the freshest seasonal and regional produce (wild ayu fish in spring say, or Matsutake mushrooms in autumn) and each dish is served in exquisite, handcrafted lacquerware and Kutani china.
