“Comfy heart touching service like going back to parents house”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2010

I stayed this Ryokan, Japanese style inn, for a one night. This ryokan inn is so close to the train station where is only gate way to this city, just few minutes walk. So if you have such heavy back pack or huge bags, it is no problem to walk this ryokan inn. You just go out the ticket gate of Takayama station, turn left for a block, then turn right. It is there.
When you walk in the main entrance, you will warmly welcomed by Okami-san, landlady and service manager, with delicately paid attention. While check in, others can enjoy icy cold beer at the lobby, charge to the room, unfortunately not complementary...
Then Nakai-san, lady who mostly dedicated to take care of you like butler but not actual butler so do not expect too much like real butler, will show to the room. Give instructions about the hotel to enjoy the stay. Not all Nakai-sans and other staffs understand and speak English, so it is better and can enjoy stay if you understand and speak Japanese!
If you book dinner as well, Nakai-san tell the time of dinner, usually aroung six to seven o'clock. Untill then you can enjoy walking around the town, or just relax by having a Japanese style shared bath. It is actually nice! But refer guide books for the manner to have it! Dinner is typical Japanese Kaiseki cuisine with 12 to 15 dishes. Mine was 12 dishes because I choose cheaper plan. Food presentation is just fantastic! Even breakfast. I recommand you to book this ryokan inn with dinner and breakfast plan.
For Japanese ryokan inn, many facilities are shared toilet and bath. This facility is as well, but our rooms was en suite.
Takayama is called as little Kyoto. Basically it is small town. But from this hotel, everything is just close walking distance. To Kokubunji temple, with five stories pagoda, is three minutes walk. To Morning market along Miygawa river and so famous old township of Takayama, just five minutes walk. Don't forget to taste around Japanese sake wine at celler doors in old township! Close to bars and restrants. You can find bars and Izakaya eateries around.
Surely I can recommand to stay this Ryokan inn as it is polite, helpful and attentive staffs in located in handy place!
