This hotel is near the train station and does look like a western hotel from the outside, but do not let this fool you. After staying in traditional Japanese accommodations prior to Takayama, we were very surprised as to the setup in this hotel. On entering the hotel, the foyer area is tiled, but to get to your rooms you have to remove your shoes and place then in lockers by the check in desk. Every thing past the foyer is covered in Tatami mats, even the stair cases. The room was very clean and had, what I would call, twin beds in the room on the floor, and a double sofa. The bath room was clean, but only had a shower. You are provided with Samue to wear around the hotel, even for dinner and breakfast
The highlight of this particular Ryokan are the baths. The baths are on the top floor. There is a public bath for both sexes, and the hot pool is actually outside and you get a great view of the city, especially at night. For these who are more modest there are 3 private baths. Each is a different style, and some do not have the bath outside.
Breakfast is a buffet, so you can chose between Japanese and Western dishes.
On entering the hotel you will notice across the driveway a small structure and maybe some people sitting down. There is a pool here where you can soak your weary feet.
