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

A very friendly japanese non english speaking lady came with the food to our room with 10 + different dishes in small bowls, and a beef we... More

This hotel is quite an experience. It provides a good overview of typical Japanese living, whilst maintaining the comforts of a hotel. Japanese style rooms are huge, with a wonderful view. Breakfast is typical Japanese, although if they see you struggling with understanding what you are actually eating, they also give you a basic Western style breakfast plate to make... More

This was my second visit to Takayama but was the first time in Hagi hotel. At the beginning, I was reluctant to book at this place given our last stay in Takayama was amazing but to my surprise, me and my family absolutely enjoyed our stay in this hotel and were amazed by the great value of it. Hagi offers... More

The Kanko Hotel sits on a hill next to the Ayuzaki Castle Ruins about 10 - 15 minutes walk from the old town area. This gives fantastic views over the old town in one direction and views over surrounding mountains in the other. The hotel itself is very spacious with lots of open space, wide corridors and a pleasant garden.... More
