The Ryokan is what a classic countryside Ryokan should be: located in a small town with a view to a shrine, the Ryokan has the look-and-feel you expect it to have. Service is very good, and so is the in-house dining which is served in charming little private dining rooms with a pleasing view to the back garden. Cons: its... More

Quiet, charming, transcendent Excellent cuisine, service and facilities A lovely mountain getaway with all of the subtle details that the Japanese do so well. Kaiseki featured blowfish, abalone, hida beef and other earthly delights. A feast for the eyes and belly

Everything was amazing - food, staff, lodging, amenities - everything. Staff went well out of their way to make sure everything went smoothly and that the experience was authentic and memorable. Attention to detail was phenomenal. The town of Hida Furukawa itself was quaint and picturesque. Extra bonus was having two local award winning sake breweries!

Beautiful room. The suite had a large, 10-tatami mat sleeping room with separate sitting and dressing areas. The en suite bathroom was very clean. The sencha tea in the room was high quality, loose leaf tea. The kaiseki dinners and breakfasts were delicious. If you do not eat beef, tell the staff in advance as beef is a regional specialty...

Fantastic old ryokan, great staff and good food. Private baths available. One of the best ryokan we have visited in the last years. Worth the extra money. River view rooms was very nice. The ryokan has a lot of character.

Hida-Furakawa is quite small and not much to see. But, this hotel is the place we like to come again. The service is just too good... We got a welcome drink / cake. Lovely green tea. The dinner and breakfast was good. During dinner, a lady, who served us the dinner, suddenly came with a camera and took us a... More

This is an extemely good Japanese style hotel with hot springs. The location is nice and quiet and by a river with good view. The room is spacious with small bathroom but we spent our time using the hot spring anyway. The staff were very friendly and they could speak good English. The meals were superb & more than enough.... More

Chose this hotel in Hida primarily because it's a 160-year old heritage building. This ryokan has character, great service throughout, comprehensive facilities, and is within walking distance to major attractions in the city. Food is not lavish but good. Staff are very accommodating. Also love their lounge where you can freely use their massage chairs in a nice surrounding. Tip:... More

Yatsusankan is a lovely traditional Japanese inn (or ryokan) in rural Gifu prefecture. The town itself - Hidafurukawa - has much to commend itself, and there is plenty to see and do in the local area. It was also pleasantly fresh when compared to the oppressive summer heat of Tokyo and Osaka. About ten minutes by foot, it is possible... More

Yatsusan is an excellent ryokan in the very pleasant town of Furukawa. The ryokan is located beside the river which runs through town and is very convenient to the main sights. We were warmly welcomed. Our spacious and comfortable tatami room also had a sitting area with western armchairs looking out across the river to a temple and the distant... More
