“Friendly staff, worn out establishment”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

I am not sure if I would recommend this ryokan to a friend, on the one hand the staff is friendly, the food is really good and location is great, since it is right behind the bus station. On the other hand, rooms are old and tatamis are made of plastic instead of straw which make you feel in a "fake" Japanese room. Price is ok but if you don´t mind spending some more money, I would advise you to look for a more authentic place,

We had booked our accomodation for one night in Takachiho at a Ryokan well in advance, but about a week before we were to arrive in Takachiho we received an email to say our ryokan had had a fire and they were unable to keep our reservation. With help from the local tourist information centre they were able to get us into Imakuni Ryokan. We booked two rooms. My husband and I in one room and our three daughters in the other room. The price included dinner and breakfast as well as free bus ride to and from the dances at the hall next to the shrine. The dinner was just amazing!!!!! There must have been 12 courses using local foods which was a great taste sensation. We finished dinner feeling very full. We went back to our rooms to get our jackets before we left for the dances to find that the staff had made and arranged our bedding for the night. After the dances we had a few drinks in our room then off to sleep. It was one of the best sleeps we had had so far as the bedding was extremely comfortable and the room was warm and cosy.The Breakfast was very similar to dinner, but with only about 6 courses that were slightly different foods to the night before. We paid a little more for this ryokan than what we would have at the other one, but we all agreed that it was well worth the money. I would stay here again.
