This guest house is an easy 10min walk from the JR train station. It does not have a 24h reception. We arrived after 10pm and everything was dark on the outside and inside. The owner came after we waited in the entrance room for about 1 min. We had to take our shoes off and stored them in an unlocked...

We spent two nights in Takayama and had a great experience here. We had the western style room which was very comfortable and clean. We didn't use the onsen, but the one on the first floor looked small but nice. The breakfast was japanese and a good occasion to experience the traditional cuisine. We also had dinner one night which...

Loved the place, very simple and clean. The guesthouse was easy to find, about 15 minutes' walk to the Takayama station. Simple refreshment provided.Place is quiet, and room very comfortable. We had the Japanese style room and had a good relaxing time using the onsen (public bath). Will recommend this place.

Had a great time visiting the inn, exceptional cleanliness & very polite innkeeper. Food was good, prepared very well. Among the few places to be frequented visit when we intend to return for ski trip to Takayama again. The guesthouse also provided a modern onsen filled with the actual onsen water(words are in Chinese and Japanese).

I travelled to Takayama in late December, always snowing, but when we arrived the minshuku, the old lady was very helpful to clean up the wheels of our every suitcase. I booked months ago as Christmas holiday is always a high season in Takayama. And since we planned to go to Shirakawago too, and afraid we cannot get bus tickets....

Stayed for two nights. Close to station (5-10 minute walk). Easy to locate. Lovely lady greeted us. Not much English but easy to make yourself understood. Had room with two beds and bathroom shower. Room was decent size and beds comfortable. Provided with water for tea drinking. Yukata provided for wearing to onsen. Onsen was small but clean and refreshing....

Coming from the North of Japan, we maybe have to get accustomed to the higher priced southern part but this Minshuku is just an efficient and quite comfortable way of spending your nights at Takayama. Not much more. We thought it was a bit on the pricy side looking at the place which is quite basic (but that could just...

Of course, shared amenities, that is what anyone who knew Japan would expect in a family run business. No problem, but maybe a little surprising for first time visitors! Maybe bring a towel with you if you are unfamiliar with the customs. I walked everywhere! Got up early to miss the tourists and strolled down the quiet, ancient streets. This...

The young woman who greeted us was friendly. The tatami room was spacious for our family of four. Shared amenities for washing up and toilet. Nice onsen. Centrally located so we could walk to the main areas in this lovely town. Had a great time.
