Kyoto, Japan  This was one of the cities we visited on my World Campus Afloat trip around the world.  It was winter, snowing, but every structure had an architectural elegance.  we stayed in a Ryokan, a Japanese hotel with paper walls and matted floors.  we sat on the floor to eat dinner which they cooked at the table.  When we tuned on TV, it was a John Wayne western with Japanese dubbed voices.  We laughed so hard.

"Asaba is a traditional Japanese ryokan dating back to 1675 (and still owned by the family who started it) situated in the hot spring (onsen) village of Shuzenji and bordered by a bamboo forest on one side, a lagoon on the other and a Noh stage floating above the pond like in a dream. It’s one of those magical places you never want to leave." http://www.zencancook.com
