I enjoyed the traditional authentic environment. The common bathroom and eating area. It's clean and well kept. Breakfast was good. I felt like being a queen feasting in the unique dinning area. The dinning area has a heating stove. Very antique. Very memorable experience. I want to return but cannot book any more. Will it be open for booking again?

We have stayed in a few ryokan and this was the smallest of all the places. Nonetheless, it was very clean with towels, a kettle and toiletries in the room. The place took a little finding. You turn left at the Teddy bear museum if you are coming from Takayama and it is the last building at the top of... More

A great place for who is seeking tranquility and nature. A special mention for the kindness and flexibility of staff (especially Yugo at the reception). The hotel is located outside of the city (near the village Hida-no-sato) but it is accessible by bus during the day, or taxi for about $ 10. Moreover, the hotel may pick up clients at... More

We stayed at this Ryokan during the Takayama festival in April. It was easy to catch the bus to get there, but a little hard to lug our bags up the hill. The offering of tea upon check in around a sunken hearth fire was a lovely appproach. Our rooms were clean and well presented and the staff are friendly... More

This hotel is also a small museum and it have it's own charm, which we liked so much. it's quite separated from city center, but you can rent a bicycle, so it's not a problem.

Patronising staff at welcome. Because I said the tea wasn't hot enough, and wanted more than amoutful, this was called "omoshiroi" by the (Filipino) waitress, speaking to my Japanese wife. I don't like being spoken of in this way, in the hope I won't understand. "Omoshiroi" means "strange", or "funny". Why not courteously explain why the tea was lukewarm, or... More

Our stay at Hida Gasshoen was definitely the highlight of our trip to Japan! We stayed there two nights at the end of May 2009 and were very fortunate to receive a free upgrade to a room with a private bathroom (we had booked a room with a shared bathroom via Rakuten for 16,000 yen a night, including breakfast and...

Wow, I saw the previous review was pretty harsh. I guess difference experience for different folks. We got to Takayama around 1pm and called the place to arrange pickup at 6pm. At first we wanted pick up at 7pm but they said it was too late so we compromised at 6pm. We went to Hida no Sato village and then... More

Of all the ryokans we stayed in this trip, this inn received the highest rating, yet is clearly the lowest quality one in every way. I think the main reason is that this is one of those inns that cater to the foreigners. They can get away with a lot of things that they would not be able to do... More

Like finding a fabulous b&b, only more fun and less comfortable. This beautiful place includes a real gassho-zukuri house where you are first welcomed with tea by the working irori (hearth) in the dining room. Then you're led to your Japanese-style tatami mat room with shoji doors, a sink, and balcony. If you choose to eat breakfast and dinner onsite... More
