touble making reservations during festival

I'm having a lot of trouble making ryokan/hotel reservations in Takayama for the Autumn Festival, Oct. 9 and 10. Every place is either booked already (or they say they're full) or they're not taking reservations until 6 months prior to the event. I have booked Oct. 7 - 8 with hopes rooms will open up for 9 - 10th. Any advice on what I should do or how the system operates?

thanks very much.

It doesn't mean the room are already full. Your vacation is fall. It is too early. Travel agencies here (Japan) is now just starting to promote Golden Week (1st week of May) . If you can find a place to stay, ask directly to Ryokan by fax or Email.

However, there are 6 ryokan in Takayama are showing up on the dates when I search by a famous Japanese booking site. Ryokufuen Kiyoharu (Y19950), Wanosato (Y31500), Hida Gasshouen (Y10000), etc.
