Budget inn in central Takayama location close to the river and historic areas. The Tatami rooms are adequate, the breakfast a little below adequate but the place has a certain charm that compensates and the welcome was good. We spent 2 nights here and feel little compulsion to revisit the city but were we to do so would probably opt... More

I stayed two nights at Rickshaw Inn with my mom in the Japanese style twin bedroom with private bath and toilet. Eguro was most helpful and amicable as were making our reservation online, up till the point of our checkout. He even helped me get a bakery to make a birthday cake for my mom, and waited till past his... More

If you pay attention to the map its not easy to spotted this place, walking distance from Takayama bus station. When we reached at the receptionist, he was so friendly and we are feel so welcome.

Stayed for 2 nights. Checked in at around 11pm with no hassle. Greeted by check in staff who gave us restaurant recommendations. The room was small but large by Japanese standards. Tatami mats were comfortable and at $21,000 JPY a great deal. Very close to Maruaki which was an added bonus !

We stayed at Rickshaw for 4 nights and LOVED it! Eguro and Nick were a terrific help. Breakfast was good and set us up for the day. The rooms were warm, clean and tidy. The atmosphere was very friendly. We slept on tatami mats, but after a couple of nights we found it quite hard - Nick organised another couple... More

We had a European room which was ok but one night was enough. The welcome was warm,the location good and the breakfast just fair. It didn't have the comfort and character of other Hotels stayed in but was fine for a short stay.

First stay at Japan in a tatami room! I thought I would be staying in a tatami when we travel to the outskirts of Japan like Shirakawa-go, but this is a comfy stay at Takayama! There's problem with the parking as it is limited, but the hotel provides a comfortable stay. The tatami room is a raised up floor as... More

This was an affordable hotel but also a genuinely pleasant surprise, and far better than many of the more expensive places we stayed at on our trip. The location is wonderful and the staff were immediately warm and welcoming, and the decor itself, while strangely muted looking in most photographs, is homely without being tacky. We had some deep, quiet... More

Despite the rustic charm of most ryokans, they can be stressful places. You never know if you're doing things right. The sleeping can be uncomfortable, and the facilities can be a bit worn. Not at Rickshaw Inn. The owners make you feel at home, and want you to enjoy the experience of the ryokan. From the helpful and charming staff... More

We stayed here last October and really enjoyed it. Rickshaw Inn isn't a normal business hotel, but a speciality lodging catering for individuals. We loved the communal room with the library. The tatami room was our first experience of these rooms in Japan. Shame we didn't return here after going to an Onsen but went to the Spa Alpine instead.... More
