I honestly ca not understand why people are so crazy about this place. It was one of the most disappointing experiences on our 3 weeks trip through Japan. The only good thing about the guest house are the owners, who are trully friendly. We did enjoy talking to both of them. Their son is very cute, too :) But other... More

The guesthouse Tomaru was the absolute highlight of our month trip to Japan. Initially we were going to stay just one night, but as soon as we saw the nice vibe of the guesthouse and the lovely family who runs it, we decided to extend our stay for another two nights. My partner and I travelled with our 12 month... More

Although our bus were delayed, we were so surprised to meet Shingo San with Haru his son at the bus terminal to greet our family. It made it so special for... More

We’re so lucky to find this place. The location is really good-within short walk from the JR station. The owners are also lovely and very helpful-Once we arrived, he provided us with maps and useful information about Takayama. The place itself is very homey and comfortable. We stayed in the private room, which is nice and clean. I will definitely... More

This small family-run business is lovely, friendly and hospitable. It was great value too. Our family of four shared a six-person bunk bed room. The beds were comfortable and the heater was warm (we stayed in February). The walls are traditional paper screens so you do need to be mindful of noise for other guests. The wifi was good, even...

Just a stones throw walk from the jr station. Very convenient and close to many eating options and souvenir shops. Shingo-San and his wife are a gem, very friendly and ever ready to be chatting. We stayed in the private room which is located upstairs and faces street with windows. Sleeping on the tatami mats and futons were comfortable !... More

Friendly family guesthouse-keepers who will provide you with everything you need for sightseeing: map, reviews, bus/train schedule, recommended restaurants and coffee houses... and umbrella when it rains! Guesthouse is very close to the trains station and 5min away walking to "city center". We stayed one night in the private room: clean and simple as expected. Little bit chilled though but... More

We stayed in a private, Japanese style room at the guesthouse for one night andShingo and his wife made us feel very welcome and were very helpful in guiding us to points of interest and things that we should do whilst in Takayama.
