A sightseeing ryokan in the center of Hida Takayama Takayama. A good old ryokan cherishes emotions. We prepare plans in Japanese style rooms from 4.5 to 12 plus such as nightly and breakfast. It is perfect for going to world heritage Shirakawago, Norikura dake, old townscape. It is a location where you can walk around to a bar street as well. After sightseeing, why do not you drop in at a busy bar / bar filled with locals?

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I stayed at this Ryokan in November '22. The facilities were very clean, staff friendly and accommodating, the baths were lovely and the homemade Japanese breakfasts were very good, made with fresh local ingredients. The location is great, being just a 10 minute of so walk from the centre of town, perhaps slightly longer to the Train Station. I recommend this as a good value, traditional place to stay with a good hearty breakfast and relaxing bathing facilities.

This is probably the best place to rediscover yourself and touch Japan on a personal level. After winding through the absolutely gorgeous streets of Takayama and taking in the stunning view of the city from the hill, we were greeted by the staff like we were old friends. After carefully explaining the hotel and its layout, we were booked into an Onsen and shown to our room. Words can not express the emotions we felt once we walked inside. Traditional Japanese, with just a slight touch of new world. After taking in the views from on top of the hill from our balcony, we proceeded to the Onsen for 45mins of pure luxury. Bathing in the hot spring water while looking over the snow covered mountains was just breathtaking.
If you want REAL Japanese food, then this place delivers. Our host, which we quickly dubbed Takayama Nanna, as she reminded us both of our Grandmothers back home, she provided an absolute feast of Japanese delicacies. Again, the same with breakfast the next day.
With a free shuttle bus into town, this place is a must visit on any trip to Japan. Not only will you fall in love with Takayama, but this Ryokan will feel like coming home.

I think it's terribly overpriced for what you get. My room was tiny (about 7 square metres) and didn't even have a chair (not good for my back). It had a coffee table, a safe that I wouldn't trust, a fridge, a dial telephone, the most complex wi-fi password ever invented (difficult to get right). Walls seem paper thin, so people socialising may keep you awake. I'm not convinced it was the cleanest (I could wipe grub off my tea cup). Some reviewer said it was up a steep hill - I think they reviewed the wrong ryokan as this area is totally flat (and the rollers on my suitcase would have soon told me). Another reviewer said there was a private bath/spa outside. I was not aware of that - perhaps the hosts should have something in English to explain their facilities.
Somehow I doubt that Japanese would stay here - I only saw westerners staying here. The price I was charged seemed excessive, especially given I could have had a hotel with a much bigger room, private facilities, etc., for less money, but when I went to book all the convenient hotels had run out of non-smoking rooms.

If you'd like a pricy trip back to the future, 80s style, this hotel is for you. However, chances are that you're not into that kind of stuff. Instead, you're looking for a taste of pre-WWII Japan, or perhaps a thoroughly modern 21st century experience (which the Japanese often excel at). You'll find none of that here.

The hotel is stuck in a time warp, preserving bits from the 70s and 80s that give those decades a bad name. It's not even bad in the fine tradition of It's So Bad It's Good. Which is a pity, because fabulous 80s kitsch can be fun.

Save your money, go somewhere else.

Very enjoyable stay. It is a big place for a ryokan but the staff couldn't do enough for us, parking the car, showing us around and arranging meal times etcIt is quite a way from the main town and we got lost trying to find it, so they sent a car to meet us and lead us back. We were shown around the onsen and the opening times explained, but without patronizing the visitor "gaijin" as some onsen hotels are apt to do. Meals were delicious and tatami rooms had flat screen TVs and lots of little nibbles and toiletries. Some of the tatami mats were stained but I don't think I have ever stayed in a ryokan with perfect flooring. Beds were put out for us while we were at dinner and the 2 baths we tried were superb. There were lots of little decorative touches like unusual lamps, paintings, fountains and plants. All in all, a very good all round experience.

I booked two nights at this hotel without finding any reviews so I was very nervious. The hotel has an english website. The hotel has ryokan style rooms. Very basic room with an old television. We had a room with a washroom. The hotel was full of families, kids, teens, parents and grandparents. There were even a few drunk middle aged men roaming around all having fun. This gave the hotel an authentic feel. The staff clearly had not had to deal with many non Japanese tourist. The staff went out of their way to try to please us. The dinner in our room was great and the breakfast was traditional Japanese style in a large room eating on the floor. Again the room was full of entire families who seemed to enjoy the fact that we could not site properly on the floor and eat. This hotel is not the Ritz or Four Seasons or for that matter a Holiday Inn. It is a Japanese family hotel and we enjoyed our stay. The onsen was nice. There is a main bath that is one day for men and the other for females as well as seperate indoor and outdoor baths. The carpet in the hall could use a good cleaning and an LCD television in the rooms would be nice but for a real Japanese experience we overlooked this. No internet.

The good - wifi worked well and the toilet upstairs was spotless. The room was an adequate size, and we had a fridge for our own use. The ryokan is a short, totally flat walk from the station and an easy walk to the markets and central areas. Everything but the Folk Village (10 min drive) is within easy walking distance. The air con in the room kept it at a comfortable temperature.
The NOT so good - our walls were splattered with unidentifiable stains, not just one, but a few. There was only one women's toilet upstairs, and one western one downstairs for the whole ryokan. There is one women's shower and bath (Japanese style), again, serving the whole ryokan. This wasn't a problem for us, as there were few guests there. The staff were sweet, but offered no help with maps etc until asked. Do get set up at the station as you arrive. There is no way to get hot water, although your thermos is filled each day in the room. If your neighbours decide to do a anything wild and crazy, like laugh moderately loudly, you will be disturbed as the walls are very thin.
There is no outside bath, no hill, no lovely views - I think some of the other review are misplaced! It's fine, though, but yes, I think it overpriced too.
We are used to ryokan, so this review does not reflect a lack of understanding of how they function.

This was a wonderful experience and once not to be missed but important to acquaint oneself with the rules so as not to upset the hotel staff who could not be more charming. Spacious rooms with dressing area, sleeping/sitting area, sitting area overlooking the town below, bathroom with good shower and separate basin area. Very clean and room servicing rolls away the futon each morning and lays it out again in the evening. Drawback for Westerners is that there is no way of stabilising the pillow so I pulled my futon over to the wall each evening which I am sure is not permitted! Lovely private seating area at the far end of the room, many quaint artefacts provided and the staff are so polite and helpful in every way, I would recommend this experience. The town is walkable, 20 mins to the station but with suitcases, better to get a taxi as it is situated on a steep hill. Very good coffee house close to the Market and Station - important if you do not like green tea!

The ryokan is centrally located in the beautiful town of Takayama and most of the sights are walkable from the ryokan. The ryokan was the most local experience for me in the entire trip. The room is spacious enough for two people and decent air-conditioning/heater. However, both the shower and bathroom (public bath) is shared and some people may have reservations with the same. There are several eating options available close to the ryokan and the morning market is just 15 mins walk.
