This hotel is awesome! We feel the boss really use heart to treat their customers. Everyone spoke good English in this hotel and they tried their best to understand your need all ththe time. The dinner is fantastic too! We have over 10 dishes and feeling every dish is well made, beautiful and delicious. The hotel is elegantly decorated too,... More

It was recommended by a friend and we were not disappointed! Free pick up from the train station, great welcoming staff! The room was perfect and very traditional! We rented a bike to the Hida Folk Village and visited the Old town nearby! The hot baths inside were perfect and the cherry on top was the food , it was... More

The stay at this place was a surprise for me. My sweetie booked it with meals. Meals are optional. What a great experience eating meals prepared by local mothers and grandmothers. Sushi, Hida beef, soup, lots of sea critters, rice, etc. The setting was beautiful! The onsen in the basement was clean and perfect with lockers and baskets to leave... More

I enjoyed staying here very much and I definitely want to stay here again next time I go to Japan. The food was excellent and some of the best that we ate in Japan. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The Japanese style rooms (which I love) were nice and clean, not too big but not too small either.... More

Again choose this ryokan on reviews and price. As Lonely Planets suggests it is good a ryokan to pick to get the experience without the large expense. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Food was good. Onsen was clean and fun. Room was quite large and clean. We spent two nights there.

A lovely, relaxing place to stay when visiting the Japanese Alps. Your welcome is warm, the facilities are clean and comfortable and the food is sublime. The Onsen is very relaxing, and pretty much every need is catered for with a morning coffee point, massage chairs and local information easily available. The rooms are smart and uncomplicated in the traditional... More

We stayed in May for 2 nights. Overall it was a good stay. Room was big enough with a comfortable bed. The place is quite big and well run by lots of Japanese staff. Pros: although 20min from the station it is actually very close to things to see. Price was reasonable. Public bath was clean and reasonable size. Cons:... More

We stayed in a charming traditional-style room with a nice view of the town as part of our honeymoon holiday in Japan. It was clean and comfortable (though the walls could do with a fresh coat of paint) and had a private toilet attached. A nice, well-maintained and clean onsen in the basement of the inn was a bonus. Well... More

I recently stayed one night at the Yamakyu Ryokan on a 2 week trip around Japan. As a solo traveller, I was finding other Ryokan very expensive when researching my trip. However I was staying over in Takayama, and Yamakyu has a single room rate. Yamakyu is delightful and a charming way to experience a Ryokan in Japan. The tatami... More

We stayed here for two nights and we loved it. Not fancy, however simple and clean. Loved sleeping on the tatami floors with comfortable futons. The onsen was simple and elegant. Enjoyed slipping into a yukata after bathing. It's a different world after a bath in the onsen.The breakfast and dinners were outstanding. It would be difficult to match the... More
