We were fortunate enough to book the Sakura room (family room) for our family of three. The photos on the website don't do this Inn justice because they are quite dark. This is because of the traditional woods in the furniture and style and I think it would take a great professional photographer to show it off. Our room is... More

A short walk from the station and near to all the shops and restaurants. We were greeted so welcomingly by the staff and made to feel very much at home. This is to traditional place in that you can't wear shoes inside (makes a lot of sense actually and not sure why some people get so fussed about it!) but... More

Less then 10 minutes walk from the train station. Take off you shoes before you go to the reception, and you room. We had a japanes style room, with bathroom. Perfect. All was clean.

Great modern ryokan with shower in the room. Location is very central between the train station and the sightseeing area. Very comfortable and extremely friendly staff. Get their restaurant recommendations. Best places in town!

This is a really lovely Japanese Inn. The room we had seemed really large, a big change after coming from Tokyo. It had a couch, a little table and a small TV and we had our own bathroom. It was a Japanese room with the Tatami mat floor, but our mattress was a futon mattress with an innerspring mattress underneath... More

The Rickshaw Inn is convenient for walking around Takayama, located near the morning market and several streets with shopping and restaurants. The staff went out of their way to be helpful and provide good recommendations for dining . The room (Japanese-style) was simple, but very comfortable. The accommodations are not luxurious, but warm and welcoming.
