It was our first time travelling to Takayama and our first time staying at a Ryokan. We thought we would give it a go and experience what its like.
Although it was a bit pricey, we paid $680 per night (which includes Dinner and Breakfast), we thought it was worth the money.
Service was exellent, couldn't ask for anything better! We arrived at Takayama via the JR and was met at the JR station by a Hidatei Hanaougi driver holding a sign. We didn't expect them to pick up us but they did and drove us to the Ryokan. We were then received and welcomed by 3 ladies in Kimonos, taking our luggage and offering us hot tea as it was snowing outside.
Although their english level were quite poor, we could see that they were trying their hardest to explain and communicate with us.
Dinner and breakfast was not the best but it was still quite good. We had a Kaiseki (Japanese Traditional cuisine) dinner.
The rooms were beatuiful with the traditional tatami mats and the onsen was outside on the terrace facing the snowfilled garden. It was an amazing view!
