Only about a 10 minute walk from the station and easy to find, Rickshaw Inn was a great place to stay in Takayama. We booked two rooms for our family of five. We arrived early (about mid-day) and our rooms were ready so we were able to move in. Our children had even been upgraded free of charge to a... More

Rickshaw Inn is conveniently located on a quiet side street between Takayama station and the old district of town, and within walking distance of numerous restaurants and bars. The interior is elegant and relaxing, with dark wood beams and furnishings with a Southeast Asian flavour, and there's a comfortable communal sitting room. My single room with Japanese style bedding was... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Rickshaw Inn earlier this month. The Inn is very well positioned, being a few streets down from Takayama Station and within walking distance of the Old Town. We stayed on the 3rd floor. It was a very comfortable room, and our futons were nice and soft. I enjoyed a very comfortable rest. Although the... More

If Takayama is on your Travel schedule, which is absolutely worth it, stay at this japanese Hotel. Located in the heart of city, it is in reach of everything by walk. The owner is a helpful lad who speaks fairly good English. He is really friendly and helps finding around. The Hotel as it self is 10 minutes away from... More

We loved this guesthouse in Takayama. We had a Japanese style room (futons rather than beds, but they were on top of innerspring mattresses if you are not used to sleeping on futons) with our own bathroom. The room size was great, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was heated well and even though it was... More

We were travelling over a busy holiday weekend in Japan, but were lucky enough to find this place. It was very convenient, and it helped that the staff spoke English. Overall we had a 'ok' experience here. The room was small and had a slight musky smell probably from the tatami mats, but it was well appointed and very clean.... More

Staying at the Rickshaw Inn was like a breath of fresh air. We felt very comfortable there, and (as westerners) felt like all our needs were catered for perfectly. If you are in Takayama, you are most likely somewhere in the middle of your stay in Japan, and possibly starting to miss some things, like jam and toast for breakfast,... More
