I would not ask more about the service at any hotel. Since the very first time I went in until the moment the taxi left the front door, I experienced the best hospitality. If you are looking for japanese gastronomy, don't miss the delicious dinner. The public bathroom is a great bet as well. Very different of western style. The... More

If you can stay more than one night in Takayama, do it. We didn't know better. This is a traditional ryokan. You leave your shoes at the front entrance. You sleep on the tatami mat floor (with a down pillow pad under you of course). Very spacious room for traditional ryokan. Price is significantly more than traditional hotels. But its... More

My husband, my father and I were looking for a few days in a small mountain town in a Ryokan, as a break from the 3 weeks of sight-seeing and visiting relatives in Kyoto & Tokyo. I found this place on-line and made a reservation, hoping for the best. And it was the best! It was absolutely charming, professionally run,... More

There is nothing much to complain about, with Ryokan Tanabe. The rooms are beautifully done up, the service is excellent and the food (dinner and breakfast served in the room) was delicious. Just little things here and there that could have made our stay more memorable. First, its location on a main street of Takayama is not that charming. Every... More

Visited Takayama in December with my husband and daughter and stayed in this lovely family-run ryokan. Location is good - a short walk from the train station, close to restaurants and shops with a 24-hr convenience store next door, and close to the major attractions in Takayama. We stayed in a room at the new wing - Yubokuan. The room... More

We, a party of 8 pax had a wonderful 3 nights stay in December and would highly recommend it. The owner, Akikosan and her staff are all very friendly and helpful. The ryokan is clean and the location is excellent. Takayama is so beautiful in the winter with plenty of snow and we will certainly be back and will stay... More

The experience, service and food we're superb. We had a wonderful two night stay in November and would recommend it. The location is central - near the station and the centre of the old town with a short walk. The whole experience was one not to forget and I can't say enough about the excellent and local food.

This Ryokan is fantastic. The location is excellent the staff are extremely kind and the owner Akiko Tanabe was gracious and spoke enough English to assist me with all of my questions. I splurged and got one of the nicer rooms (240K for two nights). It had its own beautiful wood tub and a private small courtyard where I could... More

Intending to visit World Heritage site Shirakawa-go, this is a must-stay! A quaint old town and the ryokan was a short 5-min walk from the train station and bus station (where you can book your bus to Shirakawa-go). An excellent kaiseki dinner and breakfast is served inclusive in your room rate which you cannot miss. Very friendly and accommodating staff.... More
