Stayed 3 nights at Oyado Yamakyu in mid October and really enjoyed it. We were picked up from the train station. Staff were very friendly; breakfast and dinner were excellent; great location short walk to town; really nice private Onsen. The decor in the Ryokan was fabulous. The owner is into collectibles and antiques. There were funky display cabinets everywhere... More

I had stayed in one Ryokan previously to this one, and I am getting used to the wonderful personalised service provided at them. It is different to staying in a hotel. it is more like a bed and breakfast which makes it more communal and intimate. This was a beautiful old building, with gorgeous gardens and spacious well equipped rooms.... More

We had a fabulous time at Oyado Yamakyu. It was the first Ryokan we had stayed in so it was surprising at first to see that there was no bed! My husband and I both used the baths and I had the ladies' bath to myself. They were really relaxing and the ryokan provides plenty of shampoo, conditioner and other... More

Greatu rates, wonderful onsen, and more food than even the biggest appetite can handle...the staff was fabulous (a worker spent 1/2 hour at the end of her day to help my daughter dress in her kimono and obi properly) and the eclectic decor was wonderful.

It's just plain awesome. From the pick up from Takayama station, to the room, Public Japanese bath area, dinner and breakfast, everything was done in great details. There's not a single bit that I was satisfied with. It's my first ryokan experience and I loved it. Stayed in a 8 tatami room with toilet without bathroom with a friend and... More

Had a Japanese room with ensuite toilet and basin. The onsen was really good - inside and outside baths, Beware they change around the men and womens side so everyone gets to experience both! Went twice once only one other person in there, and other time I had it all to myself! Good breakfast. Did not have dinner Felt like... More

Great Japanese experience! Staying in this Ryokan was a fantastic experience. Immaculately clean throughout, beautifully appointed traditional rooms, beautiful gardens and surrounds. The staff always on hand, very friendly and helpful and spoke enough English to assist with all our requests. Bikes are available for hire, which we used to explore Takayama. A great way to get around. Meals were... More

As I'm writing this, I'm still not sure how to rate this ryokan. You certainly get a lot for your money here. For 17,000 yen we had a room with dinner and breakfast included. However: There were no private bath in the room. I don't think any of the rooms had private baths; in fact, some of the rooms didn't... More

During our two weeks trip in Japan this was one of our best experiences. Takayama as such is very beautiful and worth seeing and staying in Yamakyu made this experience at least three times more enjoyable. Location is very good, it easily allows you to visit all worth visiting on foot. Owners are fantastic and they will make you feel... More

The check in is at 2pm but they allowed us to keep our luggage in reception until we checked in. The room was a good size and gave us all the standard needs for a ryokan. The staff were incredibly friendly and spoke great English which really helped. We didn't stay for dinner but we did enjoy breakfast and welcomed... More
