Me and my husband stayed here for two nights and it was just perfect. The staff are very nice and friendly. They are not very good english speakers but that wasn't an issue at all as we managed to understand each other very well. We choose having both breakfast and dinner at the Ryokan and it was delicious.
Your room will be transformed from day room (with table and cushions) to night room ( with mattress on floor). The room has air conditioner which came handy since in November temperatures start to decrese.

This was our first trip to Japan, and our first ryokan. We were very keen to experience the local flavor, and check out Takayama. We also spent half a day at Shirakawa-go, which was well worth it. Antique Sumiyoshi Ryokan was fantastic, with a central location and superior service. The proprietors/family who run the inn were very helpful. They don’t speak much English, but we got along very well. Our conversations in pidgin English/Japanese/hand-waving were very amusing and sometimes downright hysterical for everyone. We opted in for the Japanese breakfast and dinners for two nights, and are very happy that we did. The food was incredibly tasty, and we had lots of small plates (a dozen tasting plates for each meal). We have no idea what we were eating in many cases, and still don’t, and probably never will know. The accommodations were traditional, and since we booked the one private room with an en-suite bathroom, we had plenty of space. The bathroom was dated (and cold, since we were there in winter), but really, we didn’t care. We were too busy enjoying the view of the river. The only downside is that the walls are thin. We got lucky, and had one night of snow, and it was so beautiful. The onsen is big enough for 2-4, and you lock the door while using it. Highly recommend packing warm socks during winter. Lastly, the Sobo/grandmother is so strong and spry, and has a fantastic personality. We should all be so lucky at 71!

We arrived to a lovely welcome and we immediately knew that we were going to enjoy our stay at this lovely ryokan.
The room was clean, roomy and comfortable. The food was delicious with a great variety of local fresh fish. We would definitely recommend this ryokan to other travellers.

A highlight to stay in a real ryokan, run by 18 family members, who also live on site! We were served primarily by the lady of the house, who spoke little English but made up with it in smiles. Serendipitously we got an upstairs room with a private bath overlooking the river. How sweet it was to sleep with the window cracked and listen to the water flow. We opted for the kaiseki the night of our arrival, a multi-course Japanese meal, starting with raw snails peaking out of their shells. Yep, we ate them. We enjoyed the baths downstairs, very hot and private; they open at 4 p.m. The futon sleeping is comfortable and the pillows more of the U.S. soft variety. Breakfast is also served on a low table in your room, though it would have been nice to have met other guests (you can hear them through the walls so keep your voices down.) The location can't be beat. You can walk to all the sites including the Morning Market right across the river. Tip: There is a saki store right at the corner that sells local craft beer, but do NOT buy the wine unless you are a fan of the sweet Japanese variety. We found an imported French wine at a little shop on a street a few blocks away. Also, save yourself for some snacks at morning market. Because there was so little English spoken here, and we speak exactly four words of Japanese, found the Google translator worked great to ask directions and get clear on etiquette for the baths.
