We had the best time staying here for 3 nights, just wished we'd stayed longer. Perfectly located for us, although the uphill walk from the town may not suit everyone, close to some lovely walking trails and not far to walk to the centre of town. The hotel itself is completely charming, our room was like a suite with a... More

I was really looking forward to staying at this ryokan after reading good reviews and seeing its location at the edge of Shiroyama Park. We got a reasonable price for two rooms. I called them from the train station to request the shuttle service. No one spoke English that day, but I got through with some broken Japanese and the... More

If there is one word I would use to describe our stay here, I would use the word lukewarm. It's not a badly run place, but it pales in comparison with many others we have been to. The ryokan is very much a business. The quality of the staff varies. Some are really warm and friendly. Others are deadpan and... More

We stayed one night in this ryokan and felt welcomed from the first second. The room was clean and well kempt. The two onsens are perfect to calm down - especially in the evening with a wonderful view over the city.

We spent one night here, on our way to Hirayu Onsen. It's a quaint little inn, nothing spectacular - but in Japan, the service quality and consideration make all the difference. Given the snow and ice on the ground, it was a ginger walk up the slope to the hotel, but we made it safe and sound. Leaving the hotel... More

This is a difficult review because there is nothing really negative about this place (apart from the hill at the end of the day). Everything is spotless, albeit could do with a refurbishment, the staff are attentive, welcoming, friendly without being intrusive. I booked this hotel to have a Japanese ryokan experience, but it is not for me and that's... More

The hotel is located slightly up the hill. It is just a short downhill walk to the Nakabashi Bridge. The room is quite big with Japanese futon beds. The onsen were relaxing after a long walk. In the bathroom there were a big wooden bath tub that you can soak in and at the same time enjoy the view. Lastly,... More

I travelled alone this time. But this hotel is definitely a hotel for couples who want to enjoy private time to themselves. It was located on top of a hill which gives a very good scenic view of Takayama. It was snowing when I was there. Took many lovely pictures overlooking the view on top of a hill. It has... More

Located up on the hill, the hotel offers a great view overlooking the whole Takayama town. You need more or less 20 minutes to walk from the JR train station (with the last climb upto the hotel a bit demanding, but worth it if you like strolling around like me!). But actually the hotel offers shuttle bus service in the... More

We stayed a this hotel for two nights. As I love walking this was a great location up the hill amongst the Autumn colours. As all places in Japan the service was great. What sets this ryokan apart was the food. We spent 3 weeks in Japan and we certainly had the best meals here. Dinner was fantastic and both... More
