Great place to get that traditional Japanese vibe happening. Arrival and check in smooth, lovely friendly staff. Rooms good size with traditional floor dining which was cool. This room also doubled for sleeping so after tea they would set up bedding for us. I sort of missed having the bed in the arvos to have a rest on but we... More

This is the second time we have stayed here and were not disappointed. From the warm welcome to the traditional service it is truly a must do in Japan. The dinners are a 9 course extravaganza of japanese cuisine, cooked and presented to perfection. The breakfasts are hearty and delicious. Honestly they cannot do enough for you. We had the... More

We stayed one night at this ryokan. I was disappointed. We also stay at another ryokan in takayama but about 5 minutes drive. I was a lot happier there and regret that we did not spend extra night there. This ryokan is very dated. I suggest them to change the carpet in the hall way and refurbish the room if... More

AMAZING, is what this place was to me; this was honestly THE BEST hotel I've ever stayed at in Japan, when considering factors such as views, service received from staff, food served, and the location right by the river. Granted, the price paid was much higher than the hotel we stayed at the night before (a Toyoko-Inn hotel, so it... More

There may be little signs of age here and there, but the place is amazing. It was our first experience in a ryokan and we couldn't be more happy. We have stayed in two rooms with river view - spacious, spotless and quiet. The onsen is delightful. The food very good. The staff is incredibly helpful, beginning with Chihiro, the... More

First off: this place had the best service we've had in all Japan up to it becoming almost awkward. Several people welcoming you and if your umbrella is wet, they'll make sure that the next time you go out (even 5 minutes later) and it's dry. Not that it needs to be, cause they have umbrella's for you to lend.... More

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
