I stayed here last month with a friend and loved the area and the hospitality. It's a very quiet, serene area and very private. We only stayed for a day but I wish it were longer since there's plenty of hiking and whatnot to do around the area. The dinner was very yummy. It's a bit tricky to get to without a car - there is a bus route that includes a stop right outside the hotel, but not every bus makes that stop. I would advise asking the tourist information for help or calling the hotel for a pick-up from the Hirayu bus terminal (only 5m away).

Really enjoyed my stay here, loved the peace and tranquility of the place. The staff are amazing and professional, the chef oh my goodness made such incredible and gorgeously presented meals each dish was a work of art. It was my first time staying in a ryokan and I would love to stay again if I’m ever back in Japan. I feel as if staying here was the icing on the cake to an incredible first time trip to Japan and really want to say thank you to all the staff here for contributing to an unforgettable experience and an amazing holiday.

My girlfriend and I stayed one night here on the way from Takayama to Matsumoto. It was early April, so the snow had melted and flowers were just starting to bloom. The area is remote and tranquil, though there's not much else within walking distance. The rooms are beautiful — we were in a two-level suite with a private bath out back, and it was the nicest and most spacious place we've stayed in the country. The dining room and shared baths are also lovely, and the room had nice touches like his and hers sinks, a kotatsu (snuggly under-table heater), and a fridge. Speaking of dining, the food was also a highlight of our japan trip. They made a variety of dishes incorporating local ingredients, using Hida Beef in shabu-shabu, yakiniku, and sushi styles, as well as different preparations of sansai (mountain veggies). For my vegetarian girlfriend, they substituted veggies and fish for the beef and she also loved it. What really made the stay here amazing, though, was the warm hospitality. Our host was kind, attentive, and seemed genuinely happy and excited to understand and care for our needs. It was especially great how easily and happily they accommodated different food preferences, as well as how they gave us a ride to a nearby bus stop to continue our journey to Matsumoto. Highly recommended. Worth every penny.

Room and facilities were awesome. Nice onsen. We hate there and the menu served was amazing. Staff is very friendy. It is nice to spend one or two nights there. Take a car because there is nothing around. A hotel in Hirayu is better if you want to go out. Misses wifi.

We stayed for one night in a maisonette room with dinner for Y34,000. After travelling by bus we were welcomed by a nice hostess who spoke some of the best English we heard in Japan, despite the hotel being far up in the mountains. She provided green tea while checking us in and explaining how things worked with the onsen, meal times etc. The evening meal was served in a large dining room with other guests and consisted of endless courses of excellent food. Some of it is cooked yourself using a grill or waterbath in the centre of the table. There was a young gent waiting the tables who was excellent and tried his very best using limited English to explain what each course was. The highlight of the stay was of course the outdoor onsen. There are two at the hotel, separated by gender. Although they are swapped each day so that you get to try both. Before travelling I was doubtful whether the long trip to Takayama was worth it, but it’s so obvious once you’ve tried the onsen. It’s amazingly relaxing and definitely a highlight of my time in Japan. Due to the infrequency of the buses to the hotel, we had to catch an early bus and miss breakfast, however the hosts were kind enough to provide sandwiches for us to take.
