This is a difficult review because there is nothing really negative about this place (apart from the hill at the end of the day). Everything is spotless, albeit could do with a refurbishment, the staff are attentive, welcoming, friendly without being intrusive. I booked this hotel to have a Japanese ryokan experience, but it is not for me and that's... More

The hotel is located slightly up the hill. It is just a short downhill walk to the Nakabashi Bridge. The room is quite big with Japanese futon beds. The onsen were relaxing after a long walk. In the bathroom there were a big wooden bath tub that you can soak in and at the same time enjoy the view. Lastly,... More

I travelled alone this time. But this hotel is definitely a hotel for couples who want to enjoy private time to themselves. It was located on top of a hill which gives a very good scenic view of Takayama. It was snowing when I was there. Took many lovely pictures overlooking the view on top of a hill. It has... More

Located up on the hill, the hotel offers a great view overlooking the whole Takayama town. You need more or less 20 minutes to walk from the JR train station (with the last climb upto the hotel a bit demanding, but worth it if you like strolling around like me!). But actually the hotel offers shuttle bus service in the... More

We stayed a this hotel for two nights. As I love walking this was a great location up the hill amongst the Autumn colours. As all places in Japan the service was great. What sets this ryokan apart was the food. We spent 3 weeks in Japan and we certainly had the best meals here. Dinner was fantastic and both... More

The Japanese style hotel is situated on a hill, from where you have a view of the city. It's about a 20 min walk from the station, at the end it goes uphill. From 3 pm there is a free shuttle service. After check-out they can bring you to the trainstation. Staff is friendly and speaks English. The rooms are... More

This is a quirky, wonderful place. It's true that some of the furnishings are a bit old and tired, but the location on a hillside, the fabulous hot spring bath and the great meals - both good food and tremendous quantity - more than make up for it.

By far not the best ryokan i've been, but also the price is different. Tblhe rooms are average, need aome uodate,breakfast is more than ok and location is far from the center. Since is only 15 minutes by walk is not a bad option, but if you are looking a good ryokan, this is not your place.

I have stayed in over ten ryokans and this was definitely one of the better ones. It is well managed and is big enough to have a small boutique hotel feel. Sitting in the area in front of the hotel gives you a commanding vista of the town - a great place to have a drink. If you have wheelie... More
