I stayed in Ryokan Murayama with my mom, my brother and my nephew for 2 nights. Initially it was said that the free shuttle service that could pick us up from Takayama station was only available from 2pm onwards. We arrived slightly before 12pm and made a call anyway. What a nice surprise, the shuttle could arrive within 10 mins.... More

Good quality for a fair price. Mr. Murayama is extremely helpful and his English is suprisingly good. He recommended us a tour to Shirakawago which was a great experience (with super nice guide Mr. Yamamoto) for a very good price. The dinner was quite ok. The only disadvantage is the distance from the city center.

The stuff at the hotel is extremelly friendly and willing to help with every issue or question. The rooms are clean and nice - having in mind the price it is definitely recommendable. It is located around 2km from the center, so you have walk a lot or use bus/taxi to commute.

We are surprise that the owner Mr Murayama can speak fluent English & he himself fetch us to & fro the Takayama station daily with free shuttle. The ryokan comes with a onsen & we enjoyed onsen every night after a long day of walking the whole town. Japanese breakfast is wonderful too. There is a Teddy Bear cafe just... More

The hotel is very far from the center of Takamaya (35 minutes on foot) and you have to walk through a regular road not prepared for pedestrians. There is an old bus (free of charge) only 3 times a day from the hotel to the center (8:00 am, 8:20 am and 9:00 am) The service is very bad, when we... More

If you visit Takayama, its worth to stay here to experience ryokan stay which is not great to most, but generally will be once or twice in your life time as a tourist to experience how Japanese traditonal bed is. The owner/ manager and staff all have such a great attitude in servicing us. The complementary pick up and drop... More

Easy to get to from Takayama station (actually you can walk it if you are not carrying much stuff), in hills on the edge of the central part of the town. Awesome views from the bathroom, actually. Rooms are huge, with tatami mats, futon beds, and great views. The owner is fantastic, a big thumbs up to him for making... More

I totally enjoyed my stay of three nights at this ryokan. It has the cleanest toilet, comfortable room and hospitable staff. A wonderful experience of life in Japan though bathing in the on sen can be quite awkward and challenging. My heartfelt thanks to the manger, Mr Hideharu Murayama for his prompt action of sending me my pants that I... More

It was our first experience in a traditional Japanese Ryokan. We stayed there for 1 night. We got a big room with tatami's and the Japanese mattress (futon). The Ryokan is nice without being to sophisticated. It is a little far from the center of town but they have a free shuttle. Call them and they come to pick you... More

OK, owner is really active and friendly. They have good washing-machine and really great Private (family) onsen, me and my wife really enjoyed! Rooms are big, but heating bit tricky. Worst thing is that nearby everything was closed at 1730 latest. No restaurant, no nothing. You have to go to town for eating (or as we did, we drove to... More
