          Super nice owners and very good location! Best ryokan I’ve ever visited!!”

          This ryokan is one ofbthe best ryokan I’ve ever been in Japan. Location is great (15-20min walk from Takayama station, Folk village, and old town), owners (old lady and her son maybe?) were super duper nice people. They even offered us a ride to Takayama station when we checked out. When I first went inside of room, it smelled like cigarette. However, when I told old lady, she took care of it for us. Coin laundry is 5min walking distance, as well as Starbucks, Seven eleven, and many other good restaurants (orange colored name sign sushi place is better quality than blue one). Onsen water was amazingly good and hot. I had cold during this trip, but onsen made me feel so much better. If you are visiting Takayama, I highly recommend this place. ありがとうございます, おばあさん!

          I booked one night with dinner and breakfast. The dinner is wonderful and amazingly delicious! I highly recommend the room with dinner, save both money and time! It also came with Hida Beef!!! The location is not good but the host is willing to pick you up and send you back to the station if available. No elevator. The host can only speak slightly English but it’s enough to stay for a night or two. Also, it has a small hot spring pool which can be used for two to three people in the same time. No washroom or bathroom in any room.

          We love this place!”

          We stay during winter and we're thankful for the free shuttle from and to Takayama Station (the location itself not far from the station) so we don't have to drag our big luggages on snowy road (it's very difficult!). This is our first ryokan experience and it was amazing! The futon was very comfortable, the heater works very well and there's fresh Yukata & towel everyday. At first i was worried about the sharing bathroom, but actually you can lock the door so you don't have to experience awkward situation :) The public bath was very relaxing to end your tiring day. The hosts only speak limited english but you don't have to worry, they can properly use iPad to translate the conversation. One thing to improved, the toilet is quite chilly due to some cold wind from the window. But we would love to come back!

          Very nice Japanese style hotel”

          We stayed here for two nights (and after hiking another night). The location is good, about 5min walk to the train station. On the other side of the train station the touristy area begins. The owners are very forthcoming and friendly. They don’t speak a lot of English, but communication is very easy and they are accustomed to communicate with foreigners (e.g. by using their tablet for translation services). The rooms are typical japanese style with tatami mats, futons and a big blanket. The rooms are big enough. You get new towels and Yukata (bath robes) every day. So more than we normally had. Bath is shared and open in the evening and in the morning. The only downside was the internet. It is free but the do-spot.net service was stopped every 15min and you had to enter your email again to reenable it. Somewhat annoying but speed is good. Definitely would recommend this place!

Cons: they are unable to speak english but they are very friendly and try to help us with our inquiries. The location is around 15 mins walk to the city and 10 mins walk to station. Overal it is pleasant experience.

          A great place to experience Japan traditional house. The host is very kind although they speak only Japanese. They prepared the heater before we arrived so always feel warm in the house. They took us to the station in the morning with their car. They have modern & traditional toilets. The bath room (ofuro) is great & warm. They provide kimono & haori for each of us so we can feel how is it to be Japanese. They also provide slippers to be worn in the house. & when they see that We are with a 2 year old kid, they also have a small cute yellow slippers for my son. Everything is perfect. We wish we could stay longer there.

          Loved our stay in this lovely Japanese inn. It is very basic but the owners made sure that you are happy and comfortable. I thought attention to detail to create comfort in the room was fantastic: Japanese robes, toothbrush, very comfy futon. Room had aircon and facilities for Japanese tea. Owner also gave us bikes to use which was a perfect way to explore the beautiful Takayama. Unfortunately they did not have an option for private bath. We knew that when we booked so it was fine (although not something as a Westerner we particularly enjoy). That said bathing facilities were clean and in a good condition

          Staff were very friendly and accommodating. The room was a good size with futon style beds (which the guest house staff will make up for you in the afternoon). Male and female baths are both onsen style. Is close to a supermarket and about a 10minute walk from Takayama JR station. It's on the opposite side of town to where most of the action is, however we found this to be a pro as the area was far quieter as it is away from the hustle and bustle of town. If you're used to staying in hotels then this place probably isn't for you. For the easy going traveler who spends most of the day out sight seeing and can handle a shower possibly along side a few members of the same sex, then this place is good value. Was initially hard to find, however we have added directions for English speaking travellers in the "Travel tip" section.

          An old lady at the hotel was very nice and helpful though she couldn't speak English at all. She tried her best to help us. I love this place.
