A lovely place, this ryokan does not get many western visitors and so spoils all those who come. We had a wonderful time and the food was astoundingly good. From here we explored the Kamikochi park and Takayama town.

We only stayed for one night here, but would have loved to stay for two. The area is stunning - the mountain views are beautiful.

This place had the best heating, we were walking around in our underwear in our rooms. We had traditional futon... More

The staff is extremely friendly and will go out of their way to meet your every need. Their English is sufficient to handle basic needs but of course they will appreciate if you at least try the odd sentence in Japanese. Needless to say, since this is a Ryokan and they don't have that many international guests, you'll have a... More
