Goodish location about 500metres from the old town. Decent room with Tv and safe, japanese style so bed made up in the evening sometimes a little later than would be my choice. Communal bath which I thought was great,slippers only inside and oddly a lift given it only goes 2 floors, staff super nice and helpful with some English. Incredible...

What a wonderful experience, from the free shuttle pick up at the bus station (thanks to the information desk lady for telling us how to use the pay phone to request this), to the lovely check in and welcome. The evening meal was beautifully presented in traditional setting and seating, and what a spread! I ate enough to feed two...

We stayed for 1 night last March 19th. Although the room was a bit small for a family of 4 (the futons were laid out side by side with no space in between), it was clean and well heated. The owner and the staff were friendly. ALthough most did not speak nor understand English, they all tried very hard to...

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...

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,...

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...

This was my 1st Ryokan experience so I was worried if the walls would be thin or if sleeping on the ground would be uncomfortable. The whole experience exceeded my expectations. The staff were amazing, the food was superb, the baths were great, the futon bed was comfortable, and the walls were thick enough. The website says no internet, but...
