I stayed in this inn in March. The staff were very gracious and knowledgeable. The room was very warm and comfortable and very clean. Excellent value. I would recommend it highly.

I stayed at this little inn with another two friends. We got the Bamboo room which came complete with a mini kitchenette and a spacious bathroom with separate compartments for showering, toilet and powdering. The bedding was traditional tatami. I found it very comfy ESP with the thick quilt which was useful in the freezing temperature. The kitchen was complete with all cooking utensils which came handy for cooking. Very pleasant stay and value for money. Highly recommend this place.

Great times here at the Rickshaw Inn, Takayama.

After arriving at the address you realize that you're staying at a house in residential area of Takayama. It's quaint and nice. The rooms are decent sized, plus there is a heater which is great for the colder months. The beds are typical Japanese futons (get your bed out of the closet) and you get robes to wear as well.

Overall, great value, useful amenities, and a good location. I'd recommend.

The main street, Kokubunji, that passes by the lane where the Rickshaw Inn is located, is easy to find, however the little laneway down which Rickshaw Inn is tucked away is easy to miss; look for a high, ornate, wrought Iron Archway over the entrance to this little lane; on the archway hangs a large clock and four ornate lanterns. Richshaw Inn is just nearby down this lane. An unpretensious building from the outside, inside a comfortable Inn with attractive Japanese touches and warm welcoming staff. This Inn is very efficiently run, a well planned layout, helpful staff, spotlessly clean and provided everything we needed during our three day stay. Our room on the upper floor was Japanese style. A small entry alcove to the room had space enough for two large backpacks and ample hanging space above, so we did not have the clutter of clothes etc around us in the main room; also in the alcove was a small handbasin (H & C water) and mirror over. Stepping into the tatami matted sleeping area - at one end was a two seater couch, coffee table, small TV and an additional small table equipped with tea making facilities. At the other end room two, thick, on floor mattress, covered with, very deep, cosy, eiderdowns. The room was equiped with a heater, though despite the cold late November weather the room was comfortable and ample bedding for a warm, nights sleep. We shared toilet and bathroom close by down the hall, these were spotless, ample hot water and no set 'evening only' bathing times such as we encountered in some more expensive Japanese style accommodation. The spacious lounge area is a bonus as is the little kitchen area which was very well equipped, clean and organized.

Room Tip: Rickshaw has varied style of rooms to suit Japanese or Western tastes, depending on budget and perso...

Stayed here only for 1 night in a small single Japanese style room. Liked the tradtitioneel feel of it and the tatami mat slept great. Had no private bathroom, but did have a private toilet. Friendly staff who know about bustimes to for example the hida village or to other places like Kanazawa.

Heater and airco in room and also tea making facilities.

Location is good, only a few minutes from the station and a few minutes from the morning markets and the old houses.

Check out time is 10 in the morning, but i could wait in the living area until my bus arrived. Nice stay.

We stayed in a japanese style room with private bathroom. the weather was quite cold, and the in room heater helps a lot. there're both air conditioner and heater in the room. room was OK, a bit rundown. bathroom was small, but as said, all meets the functional requirements. location is Ok, half way from the old town, half way from the station. A plus here is the informational receptionist with all the knowledge you need to know about takayama. you can ask anything. and expect that she can answer! i like the fact that there's a window in the room, which we can open. but still think the price is on the high side. it is the most expensive hotel we spent in the trip except a ryokan.

Thank you for taking the time to reviewing your recent stay with us.
We are very sorry you felt that your room is a bit small.
We also have a family room that is bigger than the regular Japanese style room although the cost will be higher.
We are always happy to answer to guest's questions.
We look forward to welcoming you back sometime in the future.
