I was traveling with a friend in Japan, and we wanted to experience a traditional Ryokan and Onsen. Our travel agent suggested this place (and booked it, so I don't know how the prices range), and we were delighted to see the spacious rooms and excellent service during our stay. It was a quiet period, so we got the onsen areas to ourselves most of the time (curiously enough they switch the women's and men's areas in the morning and afternoon, so make sure you check what the sign says before entering ;-) ). Our room also had a private onsen.
The food was amazing, and I don't have the number for how many different dishes we were served. I don't think I will get used to the feeling of the extremely polite staff kneeling on the floor, making our beds and serving our food in the room, but it definitely was an amazing experience, which I'd recommend to anyone wanting to try out a traditional Japanese Ryokan.
The Ryokan is in the center of the city, with walking distance to everything, just two blocks away from one of the morning markets. Even though it's a very central location, Takayama is a small an quite town, so you wont be disturbed with traffic or noisy nightlife.More
