We are surprised by the warm welcoming of the staff. All of them are truly cheerful, friendly and helpful. We had a wonderful stay there and it was definitely an unforgettable memory for us. There is free shuttle bus for taking us to the hotel at Takayama JR station. The driver arrived on time and pick us up very on... More

This hotel is not fancy and may be dated, but clean and accommodating. English is understood by most of staff and is not a problem. The dinner and breakfast were very good. They have a menu at dinner to describe each dish. At breakfast, there is a map that initially covers the dishes. It describes where each is placed with... More

This ryokan gives you the traditional Japanese Inn experience, from the great welcome when all the staff call yokoso together while a great gong is struck, to the traditional garments provided, the welcome tea and introduction, the many-course dinner served in your room, to the futon beds and the great Japanese breakfast. We even had a big sign out the... More

We stayed two nights last week with our kids, ages 9 and 7. It was a nice way to experience a Japanese ryokan for the first time. If our kids were older, we might have elected one of the smaller properties away from town but this was a good combination of large room, private bathroom and perfect location to walk... More

We stayed at this hotel/ryokan as part of a large group. It was our first stay in a ryokan style hotel and it was wonderful. Our room was shown to us and explained and we were served green tea and snacks. The view was wonderful and it was fine to smoke in the room or on the balcony if desired.... More

in short, most of the staff were fabulous, which made our stay very pleasant... arigato-gozaimas to all at honjin hirayona! [just a tip] : the lobby/reption/front store area wasn't that aesthetically pleasing and was quite disappointing to be honest... but judging from the rest of the glowing reviews below, think my opinion is an isolated one :-) for me, think...

Stayed at this hotel in April 2015 as part of a private tour of about 20 people. The hotel was amazing and definitely more of a traditional Japanese hotel (although modern) than most of the other accommodation on our trip. They had no trouble organising great vegetarian options for part of our group and we also had a great taiko... More

the room we stayed was super clean and big enough. Everything was well prepared with detailed introduction. Our room was the one with a half outdoor private hot springs and it provides a very enjoyable moment of the stay. Food was great. Hida breef provided in dinner were delicious. No reason not to reserve dinner in the hotel in exchange... More
