The most impressive asset of the hotel is the location: the whole Takayama tourist center is located withing a circle of about 15 min walk radius. The hotel is situated within that circle, which makes it a great location for walking trips. They're also just a few minutes away from a bus station. The place is affordable, clean, has a...

This was our one and only ryokan in japan, and I'm very glad we decided to stay here. The location is excellently central. We did western beds and a private bath, making it more a hybrid than totally Japanese experience. They have a public bath, but I have a tattoo and decided not to try my luck. We did the...

The Ryokan is very conviniently located just a few blocks away from the bus/train station. Just 5 minutes if you walk slowly. We had a room w/ private bath/toilet. The room was very spacious in Japanese perspective. Two sides of the room had small extensions with view. Sleeping on the tatami was a little harsh but when put some extra...

Overall very disappointing experience. The floor dirty, rooms are run down, facilities are second class. The staff has very limited English and caused us time wasting (virtually all day) by misguiding us to go to Shirakawa-go in the busiest day one can imagine... We were also very disappointed with the breakfast and so called "private bath" in our room. The...

Helpful, smiling staff, interesting food, and a good location make this place a bit more special than it would otherwise be, if one were to judge it on the quality of the accommodations alone. The room we had was one of the larger, with its own sink and a bathroom, but the sink area was tiny, and the hot water...

Takayama is a small town but it is the main coach station to have travel at nearby rural area. The atmosphere of the town is so peaceful and relaxing. We spent 2 half days to have city sightseeing + 1 day @ Kamikochi (上高地) + 0.5 day @ Shirakawa Village (白川鄉). In the downtown, 99% shops will be closed on...

The hotel is in a good location in a side street off the centre. Rooms are limited in size to other ryokans, and there is no wifi in the rooms (reception on the ground floor is limited also). What we did like is the Japanese style breakfast which changes every day.

We stayed here for 2 nights, the rooms were set like a traditional Japanese guest house. Big rooms, comfortable beds and very clean. The tea set was a really nice touch. Great view from the room to a little water fall and a pond with fish. The onsen was amazing.

The room was adequate in size but slightly old I feel. It may be time for them to do some maintenance work as some of the walls on the 3rd floor had half repaired leaks too. Our room was clean but there was a patched up hole in the cupboard where they kept their futon mattresses which should have been...

We stayed in this ryokan for two nights. We booked a Japanese style room with private bathroom. The room was a bit small compared to the one we had in another ryokan, but was clean, nice, with two comfortable futons, table, tea, etc. The main problem is that it was an inner room with no views. We chose the western...
