We stayed here for just one night, having spent the previous night at another hotel elsewhere in Takayama, but wish we had been able to stay for longer. The couple that run the hotel are supremely polite and overwhelmingly friendly (albeit in their own quirky Japanese way). The communal hot baths (onsen) were lovely and the breakfast very good too...

We booked for two nights stay (one with 2 meals, and one just to accomodation) via email. Ryokan owner Mr.Minami accepted and replied to our email very timely. And best of all, we weren't asked to pay deposit up front because that will be difficult for us to process. We arrived later than expected, but our room is ready and... More

Writing this review while on the train to Nagoya from Takayama. We stayed 2 nights at this delightful Ryokan and as per what the other reviewers mentioned, it is set in a old house but everything was fully functional. We stayed in the family room with attached bathroom but used the common bath room for our Onsen experience. It was... More

What a delightful place to stay.... This is an old Japanese house full of treasures.... Don't expect en suites and sofas!!!! What you do get is the real traditional way of doing things. A huge suite of beautifully spare rooms.... Your own dining area for dinner and breakfasts.... We even had a terrace with a river view.... The shower room... More

We were most pleased with our experience at Sumiyoshi Ryokan. We enjoyed traditional dining in our room for breakfast and dinner. A varied selection Japanese dishes were presented at each meal and the service was wonderfully friendly. After dinner the table is moved out and the bedding is set up on the floor. The overall experience gave us a great... More

Located close to Yayoibashi Bridge, and easy walking to the Miyagama Morning Market (2 minutes) and Takayama's old town, with its many beautifully preserved buildings. An easy flat walking distance of about 12 minutes, to the bus and JR stations. Warm and friendly welcome by the owner and his son on arrival. Rooms are fitted with tatami (woven-straw) flooring, a...

this is a gem of a ryokan. Run by a charming husband and wife in their 60's, the accommodation was superb. Never before had I enjoyed a suite of rooms in a ryokan. The hotel is over 100 years old and is full of character without losing any of its quality. The bath was clean and newly furnished, although the... More

Great location and such a lovely husband and wife team (guess their age but what whirlwinds!). The rooms are lovely and the attention to make sure we were comfortable was excellent. The dinner and breakfast was fantastic and lovingly prepared. We thought Takayama a lovely place and enjoyed two nights at this Ryokan and would have been happy staying longer!

My husband and I spent two nights in the room upstairs with the private bathroom. We liked the location of Sumiyoshi Ryokan, right on the river with a short walk to the main backstreets of Takayama. It was quite cold while were there, however the room had a heater. We turned it off at night and stayed warm on our... More

Really enjoyed our stay here. Place is a 15 min walk from the station and is beautifully set on the river. We had a room with a private bathroom which came with lovely river views. Room was very spacious, good matresses, a safe. We didnt spend much time in the place as it was so well situated. Staff didnt speak... More
