Our stay in Yarimikan was a top highlight of our trip to Japan. This thoughtfully restored Japanese manor house has spacious and beautifully appointed rooms that are worth the splurge. The inn overlooks a wild river in the Japanese alps, and features a handful of outdoor onsen with great views, some built out of river stones, and just a stones... More

Imagine waking up every morning to the gurgle of the river strewn with grey and white rocks with sharp white peaks of the distant mountains. I had the privilege of this magnificent experience during my stay at the exquisite and opulent Yarimikan, a dream like no other. This ryokan is a bit far but possible to get to by the... More

We arrived at the ropeway bus station as we missed the stop. Called the Ryokan they promptly picked us up. Perfect timing in mid march as the snow was dumping down. The property and rooms are beautiful great remote location. Onsen's were great the first mixed onsen was the best nice warm water and snow falling on our heads while... More

Somewhat remote location, about 2 hours bus ride to get to, the hotel is traditional Japanese style, the rooms comfortable and clean, breakfast and dinner were delicious. There are several open-air onsen, love it!

This ryokan is truly a hidden gem with less than 20 rooms. I was thoroughly impressed with the property and it's lovely private onsens with the most fabulous views that you thought you'd only come across in magazines. Imagine an onsen right next to a river. It really feels like paradise just soaking and enjoying the serenity and scenery. Even... More

We arrived here after an one night stop in Kamikochi, changing buses in Hirayu Onsen. The trip was a easy one and the scenery boast with views of cloud-shrouded green mountains. Location is absolutely fantastic, in the remote valleys of the Okuhida in the northern alps, right on the bank of the river opposite side of the bus station (less... More

Loved Yarimikan! It was a rainy Friday and we were not sure how to get to there from Shin Hotaka Ropeway (another amazing experience) so we called the Ryokan. A shuttle was outside the ropeway's doors withing 5 minutes! Once we arrived at the hotel a wonderful host served us hot tea and showed us our big and beautifully designed... More

After a day at the excellent Shin-Hotaka Ropeway we arrived at this fantastic onsen. The reception area is beautiful and they make you feel very welcome. There was a mix up with our booking and there were no Japanese rooms left so by a stroke of luck we were given a suite room. It was such a great room with... More

I walked there from Shin Hotaka Ropeway, along river, after hiking the mountains. It was a high quality historic ryokan. Onsen are beside river, and not busy. Very scenic. Open all night. Dinner is fabulous, with what seemed like 10 course meal. Local bus stop is nearby, cross river and its on other side but best to get directions as... More
