We enjoyed our stay. The hotel is located in a uphill so you will get great views from the city. It offer a limited shutle to/from JR station 7-10 am and 3 - 6 pm. If you arrive in a diferent hour we suggest a taxi (around 860 yens). We walked but it is a step hill especially with lugage.... More

My arrival here was unusual. I was meant to arrive by train from Toyama, but the train became snowed in at Sakakami, Hida and taxis had to come from Takayama to collect us. I was delivered to my hotel, hours late but they were still able to provide dinner.I was also able to have a bath in the rotenburo. My... More

Beautiful Ryokan in gorgeous Takayama! The welcome we got was wonderful after being picked up by the free shuttle bus at the train station in Takayama. The rooms were beautiful and we had a gorgeous view of city and surrounding mountains. The staff at the hotel were exceptional and explained everything about the facilities to us. The hotel had very... More

A traditional hotel on a mountain with a sweeping view of Takayama. The outdoor onsen is a treat, and we had no problem booking it for each day we were there. The staff are charming and friendly, and the breakfast is amazing. Thank you Kanko...hopefully one day we will visit you again.

We found Takayama a pretty town in parts but the shops a little the same and for the tourists. The hotel seemed a relatively authentic Japanese experience with the traditional style room and futon beds. Although to be honest we found the set up of the room a little uncomfortable and awkward. The provided Japanese Robes in the rooms which... More

Takayama Kanko's Hotel's perch on top of a hillside gives it an incredible sweeping view of Takayama and the mountains beyond. The view is ever-present in the hotel lobby, public and private baths, and many of the rooms, and it offered a context for the city of Takayama that we might not have experienced otherwise. When we booked, we were... More

We booked fairly last minute and the hotel did everything they could to accommodate us, the bus came right on time, the welcome was warm and the team were at great pains to make sure we knew where everything was. The open air bath was wonderful, the food was just amazing, would happily stay here again. And even when i... More

I stayed with my wife and her parents in October 2014. We had the choice of a Western room and a Japanese style room. A surprise was that there was no bed, the staff come into the room and make up the traditional Japanese beds on the floor. The Western style room is not much different aside from a couple... More

Need improvement: Refer to the Google map show that the location of hotel is nearby the railway station but actually it needs 30-45 min walking distance and there are no any sign to show the way. Dinner and breakfast both are not worth to pay by the small portions and bad quality. Recommend: The host is very kindness and introduce... More
