Recommended. A well-run ryokan with very gracious hosts, featuring shared toilet facilities, an onsen, and futons for sleeping. While a continental breakfast is offered, don't miss out on the superb Japanese-style breakfast. This was our favorite ryokan while staying in Japan for two weeks. Conveniently located.
Super friendly and helpful owners. The rooms are very nice japanese style - simple with tatami mats and matress on the floor. You are making you own bed and you are sleeping perfectly. There is a nice little onsen in the basement. You borrow a kimono to wear. I recommend the japanese breakfast. The owner explains very kindly how to eat the breakfast in the right way. It was very delitious. The place has a hostel kind of spirit and is highly recommendable for a japanese style acommodation.
Our family of three stayed two nights at Sosuke and enjoyed the authentic nature of this guest house and the friendly and helpful nature of our hosts. We had Japanese breakfast which was different and enjoyable both mornings. Our host Keiko spent some time explaining each meal and the significance of local ingredients. Traditional bathing options were available as well as individual showers. It was a bit of a walk into the historic part of town, but very close to Hida Folk Village. Recommended.
A short walk from the fantastically beautiful Takayama station, this was a beautiful ryokan. Rooms were comfortable, the hosts were accommodating, and, as others have noted, the breakfast was so so good! There is a small but perfect onsen as well.
A really beautiful place. Imacculate, and full of fascinating history. Has a truly lovely family feel - you can feel the generations that have lived in and still run the place. Do not be put off by the location! It’s honestly a five minute walk from the station and a 15 minute walk from even the furthest parts of the old town. Totally worth it for the grace and charm of the old girl. Had a wonderful stay with a family of 4 (5 and 6 year old children). Highly recommend.
