We stayed at this ryokan with our 6 month old daughter during our first overseas vacation. The staff were great and really hospitable. They really made us feel at home. We got the dinner option for one night and the breakfast option for the two mornings we were there. We are glad we got the dinner since we got to try things we would not have otherwise tried. So many dishes and so tasty. We also loved the plum wine. The breakfast was ok but we are more of baked goods/coffee breakfast people and would have rather just gone to a cafe so it may just be our personal preference. The bath was nice. The location was great, though it may look far on the map it is only a short walk to the sites and the tourist area is actually all walkable (even with a baby in a carrier). It is really nice how the staff will come pick you up and drop you off at the train station. In fact, the morning we left we arranged to have our bags meet us at the station so that we could spend some more time sightseeing. It was our first experience at a ryokan and we found the beds comfy, it was nice to have the electric blanket. We would recommend this place and Takayama.

If you've never stayed at a traditional Japanese ryokan this is THE place to try it (and if you have already stayed at one, still come here, you'll be impressed!).

The location is ideal for exploring the best of what Takayama has to offer. The staff are super friendly, and several speak good English. The rooms are a good size, comfortable, and you don't hear your neighbors. The onsen is very good, with indoor and outdoor baths that rotate between men's and women's daily so if you stay 2 nights you get to try both onsen. The meals are also very very good, and are a real chance to experience authentic, healthy Japanese cuisine.

Plan on at least 2 nights in Takayama (3 is better) to give you chance to explore and get a feel for the place.

Takayama is a beautiful town and staying in Yamakyu onsen was a very nice experience. If you go, ask for breakfast and lunch, the food is great, abundant and very cheap. Futons were clean and they connect an electric blanket under the sheets if was too cold. I would recommend!

We have to agree with all the previous reviewers that say what a great place this is to stay. A very comfortable "taste" of traditional Japan with the futons, tatami mats and of course the beautiful food.
We are also in our sixties, coped well with sleeping on the floor, loved the onsen experience, were grateful for the train pick up and delivery and would highly recommend this Ryokan for any age.
