    It is hard to review a Ryokan since I have only been in one. The building is not very nice, but the view from the room was great. We had the room with the shower and we could also enjoy the shared onsen, which you can close for privacy. We also had breakfast and dinner there and it was quite... More

    The location is quite good. The majority of rooms are facing the river. It is extremely lovely at summer. The rooms are in old style and you can find out a lot of antique things, paitings, etc. We felt like back to my grandma's house. The master is very friendly and the staff was very kind and cheerful. The food... More

    We stayed three nights in February ,when Takayama was under snow. We enjoyed it so much we went out of our way to return at the end of June for three nights. The first time I booked through Booking.com but this time I booked directly online and with a follow up phone call.I like the two rooms upstairs overlooking the... More

    The ryokan is in a traditional wooden house and felt more like a minshuku than ryokan. But the hospitality was warm and sincere with excellent food. We ended up having dinner on both nights we were there because of the wonderful food. The location was also great as a base for site seeing. That said this is not a ryokan... More

    Takayama was our favorite city on our trip to Japan. We were determined to have an authentic ryokan experience and Sumiyoshi was the BEST choice ever. We enjoyed every moment of the two night stay here. The staff is amazing, the owners and the ladies serving us breakfast and dinner are the sweetest and funniest people I know. They spoke... More

    Experience a traditional experience at its best. We thoroughly enjoyed the details the owner and staff brought. Their attention to details and service was outstanding. Macha Tea in the afternoon, Yukata for a relaxing evening, Traditional breakfast with fantastic dishes to try. Traditional dinner was many dishes to try, quality and variety far exceeded what we had at any other... More

    This was my first trip to Japan, so I wanted to stay at a traditional ryokan. I am so glad I stayed at Sumiyoshi Ryokan rather than at one of the warehouse-style hotels near the train station that were about the same price. The owners were extremely friendly, especially Sumiko, the co-owner, I assume. She was very sincere and jolly,... More

    We absolutely fell in love with this ryokan! We stayed two nights and just loved it! The food is amazing. We arrived a bit before the posted check in, and were taken right up to our room. We had forwarded our luggage ahead to this location, and it was already in our room when we arrived. The room overlooked the... More

    We stayed two nights at the Sumiyoshi and loved every minute. If you are looking for the definitive Japanese Ryokan experience, this is it! Family owned, the service is absolutely impeccable, the Japanese breakfast is a must, served by a charming elderly Japanese lady who is one of the owners, we were blown away by the attention & detail that...
