Love the way they designed each room with your own gate, it's as if you're coming home :) the hot bath is a real bonus, only setback is the bathing time...if you arrive after 10am, you can't use till 4pm. Otherwise nothing to complain :)

Excellent location, owner is a very polite and kind lady, she waited us until late to be able to help us check in. Super clean tatami room, big public onsen. Parking just beside very convenient. No luxurious or fancy details but, more than enough to stay a few nights at a petty town. Just like most traditional Japanese house, no... More

The location of Minshuku Kuwataniya can't be beat - 5 minutes from the bus and train station. On a main(ish) road but we were at the back and not bothered by any noise. The Japanese style room we stayed in was quite spacious and very clean, plenty of towels. The futons were comfortable enough. The public bath was a plus,... More

Loved this place when first stayed here, haven't stayed anywhere else in Takayama. It is a couple of minutes walk from the station and the canal and the museums and... You get the idea. It is quiet and friendly. The baths are a bit small but if it is just you it is not an issue.

Stayed in this minshuku for the second time. The owner has renovated the place and it is newer and more pleasant. The daughter of the innkeeper has taken over the place and though spoke little English, is a pleasant and accommodating person. The room rates are reasonable which come with breakfast, prepared in japanese style and typical of Takayama diet... More

It's a basic simple clean guesthouse for anyone who wants to spend the night. The location is great. It's a few minutes walk away from the main street and roughly 10 minutes walk away from the JR and bus station. We didn't have the meals so can't really say much about it.

This guest house is an easy 10min walk from the JR train station. It does not have a 24h reception. We arrived after 10pm and everything was dark on the outside and inside. The owner came after we waited in the entrance room for about 1 min. We had to take our shoes off and stored them in an unlocked... More

We spent two nights in Takayama and had a great experience here. We had the western style room which was very comfortable and clean. We didn't use the onsen, but the one on the first floor looked small but nice. The breakfast was japanese and a good occasion to experience the traditional cuisine. We also had dinner one night which... More

Loved the place, very simple and clean. The guesthouse was easy to find, about 15 minutes' walk to the Takayama station. Simple refreshment provided.Place is quiet, and room very comfortable. We had the Japanese style room and had a good relaxing time using the onsen (public bath). Will recommend this place.

Had a great time visiting the inn, exceptional cleanliness & very polite innkeeper. Food was good, prepared very well. Among the few places to be frequented visit when we intend to return for ski trip to Takayama again. The guesthouse also provided a modern onsen filled with the actual onsen water(words are in Chinese and Japanese).
