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

The staff here were very helpful - they provided umbrellas when there was heavy rain (we had bad small ones) and provided a lot of help when we were planning on travelling by bus via Kamikochi to Matsumoto. The hotel itself is a gorgeous wooden building and the rooms are beautiful with tatami mats. The breakfast was also very nice.... More

Excellent location (walking distance from the station and to the old quarters of Takayama). Very nice decoration of the hotel with many beautiful ethnic coths hung on the walls. warm welcoming atmosphere. The owner is a Takayama native, he speaks a very good English and will be happy to let you know the best places to visit in the city.... More

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

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.
