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

As budget travelers we were searching for a reasonable price ryokan and Yamakyu was our best choice to have the japanese experience. Maybe you can chose another luxurious ryokan, but this one is really authentical. First of all, we arrived at Bus station in Takayama and they picked us up just in time. At Yamakyu they welcomed us with tea... More

We stayed three nights at this Ryokan, wanting to experience traditional Japan. A young man picked us up at the train station and took us to the hotel. The staff all were exceptional, the room large enough (there is no furniture to take up space), and the onsen was very clean and pleasant. I had it to myself both times... More

Spring Takayama Festival was in rain. We arrived at about 12:00 at a view point, We saw the beautiful Takayama, and went to the central city. We took the hotel in Yamakyu. We could eat much at dinner and breakfast. Oishi katta!

We stayed in this wonderful ryokan with our 1 year old baby back in December 2014 and we could not say enough good things about the services we got. We were traveling from Tokyo and needed to switch train from Nogoya. However, we only found out the train from Nogoya to Takayama was cancelled due to snowstorm after arriving Nogoya.... More

Location: Yamakyu is a bit far from train/bus station. If possible, better to let the hostel staff pick you up at the train station. If you don’t have much luggage, you can take a walk to Yamakyu. On the way, you can have a look & feel the small town Tatayama local life style. Room: Typical Jap-style ryokan. Enough space... More

Our stay at Oyado Yamakyu was easily one of the highlights of our trip. The ryokan is located within easy walking distance of everything we wanted to see in Takayama, and the shuttle to and from the station was convenient in helping us move our luggage. The food was fantastic, we enjoyed being able to sample a wide variety of... More

As part of our trip through Japan of 4 weeks we visited Takayama. When you look at places to stay in Takayama there are many places to go to in this relative touristic hotspot. As a preparation we read many reviews and this place was a good place to enjoy a ryokan experience in Japan without spending hugely per night.... More

We stayed for three nights whilst in Takayama - and we absolutely loved this place! Inside is decorated so nicely - loads of little things to look at the gave such a homely feel to it. All members of staff were friendly and accommodating and couldn't do enough to help and advice us of the best things to do during... More
