This is a very good mid-level ryokan, perfect to experience a classic Japanese ryokan. By 'classic' I don't mean historic, as the building is fairly modern. But rather, it's a place that hits all the right notes that a ryokan should. The staff is what really makes this ryokan stand out, with personal, attentive, warm and friendly service from everyone...

This hotel is perfectly placed overlooking the river and bridge where the Takayama festival floats will travel. With the cherry blossoms extra early this year, the view was just enchanting. The staff are really polite and helpful, and the rooms are very comfortable. The dinners here were also superb. My first choice again should I return!

This is our second trip to Japan and the second ryokan experience, and we loved it. The location of the hotel is great, right in the centre of attractions, and a 10 minute walk from the station. We stayed for 2 nights at the Annex (Bekkan) and got a room facing the Miyagawa river. It was a postcard perfect view... More
