Stayed here for 5 nights (25/12 - 30/12/13) in winter. I bought the Nouhi 4-days bus pass to explore the surrounding Okuhida Onsen area and Shirakawago. The room is super big and very clean (see my pictures). The common toilets are also very clean. Wifi is fast enough to Skpe and the kitchen is well-equipped with microwave and cooking tools.... More

I stayed there for 2 nights with my boyfriend. We've been welcomed by a very nice person who spoke good english and had at heart to show and explain us everything so that we would feel comfortable. She even made us choose our room. So we got a huge japanese style room, with a window (actually it's a whole in... More

I stayed here in August with my partner for 3 nights. We stayed in the main double room between the shrine and the beautiful garden and paid JPY5000 per night (it required a reservation by email). The temple was extremely quiet and peaceful, and it was a wonderful experience to stay in a room with paper walls, sliding doors, a... More

Excellent location is right opposite Takayama station but a 5 min walk away from the heart of town and the riverside. Don't let this put you off - Takayama is a gorgeous and quiet little town - recommended mode of transport - feet. Staff in hotel are very friendly especially the small rotund fella at reception - Not great english... More

We enjoyed our stay at Zenkoji Temple in April 2013. We had booked well in advance, and had two clean and comfortable adjoining rooms upstairs for our family of four - the fantastically steep stairway, almost a ladder, added to the experience! Don't stay here if you want a nice standard and sterile hotel just like you'd find anywhere else;... More

Reading the negative reviews of the Takayama Zenkoji makes me think that we were in a different place! Our experience couldn't have been more positive indeed! A French tourist whom we met in Kamakura recommended us to stay here, so we wrote to the temple's care-taker a few days before our arrival and he booked a room for us. We... More

This is a great alternative accommodation. Our room had tatami mats, futons and paper walls, and gorgeous view out to a snowy garden, electric blankets, two heaters, and a Japanese table with heater under it and blanket over the top. It was a beautiful cozy retreat. The room was spacious and clean, shared bathroom spotless, and common areas had kitchen,... More

Japanese-styled futon/tatami-rooms, nice and clean shared facilities. Staff is also taking care of the temple itself and you are free to join the 09.30 morning-prayer. During my stay winter came in and snow was covering the Inn & surroundings, there is a electric heater and more than enough beddings to keep you warm in this wooden construction

There is a common kitchen where you can prepare meals,and make tea or coffee,although no breakfast is being served at the inn. Just across the street there is a... More
