    Lovely place”

    I really like this guest house. It is situated little far from the city center..(.it was 30 min walk but for us it was not a problem) but we loved the view from the room, just nature and very closed to the Folk Village. The room was big and clean. Big Kitchen and friendly staff

    Great Hostel with Great Service”

    We thought this place is of great value. It is very far to get to at first, and it's located up a hill, but the good thing is that it's close to Green Hotel, and they also have free shuttle to the station. The rooms and facilities were very clean, and the staff were really helpful in showing us all sorts of places when we checked in. The Takayama markets could be a bit far, but it's a part of the charm to walk there. The great thing is being located near Green Hotel. We didn't really use the shower facilities at Sakura, even though they seem clean. We had a 1000 yen onsen at Green Hotel, which is a luxury resort, and it had several restaurants with great food opened late. One restaurant even opened til 11pm. Sakura being close to Green Hotel made it feel like a Resort.

    Very helpful, nice room, very clean, great location walk to Hida folk village and other attractions, a fabulous and well-priced restaurant a few doors down the road. It was fun hiring bikes from the Guest House to ride around the town and old town and to walking course routes. And to top it all, we saw a serrow (wild antelope) from our room window! bounding up between rice paddies just nearby.

    This was the best value for nice clean facility that I have ever had! ”

    Had all the conveniences I needed in a hotel room. Staff was always helpful. Facilities always clean. Access to refrigerator and hot water at all times. Not close to station, but very near Hida no Sato, a lovely recreated village attraction with bilingual signage in English/Japanese so very informative. Nice neighborhood! Quiet and safe. I've stayed st all kinds of accommodations in Japan (Airbnb, ryokan, minshuku, hotels) and while this is not for the 5-star girl type traveller, this was definitely the best value I've ever had in Japan for good accommodations and helpful staff.

    All staff are kind. They prepare everything that the traveler should have and also provide all information for this old town. The room is clean. The public bath also clean. Although the location is quite far from the central but they have free shuttle bus. I plan to take the Sarubobo bus from Takayama bus station to Hida Folk Village then walk back to this guest house after visit the Hida Folk Village. (800 metre)

    The facility is so clean, and has everything that you need. My husband and I rented the in-house bicycles to explore around Takayama city. They said one of the bicycles was old (although for me it doesn't look like one), and gave us discount for the bicycle! They were so nice and we really enjoyed our stay there!

    We stayed here for 1 night, we found that this guesthouse looks pretty clean and new. You can tell from their rooms and toilet/shower. The size of our room is big. Staff is polite. Location is okay since we have a car. Overall, it is worth the money to stay here for 1 night.

    The hostel sits above the town of Takayama, giving a beautiful view of the city that you can't get when you're directly inside. The wifi works really well and I extended my stay because the place was so calming and relaxing. It is a kilo walk to town, but they offer a free shuttle to the train/bus station at 07:30 and 09:00.

    Highly recommended guesthouse away from town”

    Big Room, Comfy Bed, Wonderful Surrounding

    We stayed at the twin room for one of our nights in Takayama to experience quiet stay away from town and I must say this is definitely one of our memorable stays in Japan. Clean guesthouse, big room, comfy bed, clean shower rooms and toilets. Not forgetting the warm kitchen/dining area! Yes, it is quite a distance from the town, but it is also within walking distance to one of the main attractions - Hida Folk Village. You can walk to Family Mart for dinner and local bakery for fresh pastries in the morning, both within 15 mins walk. Would definitely recommend this guesthouse to everyone!

    Friendly owner

    Sakura Guest house is located within 10 minutes-walk from the Takayama main station. It is very strategic as many places of interest just located around. It was glad that I was able to meet with many travellers around the world during my stay. The owner of this house was very kind and friendly and even treat us eat some japanese snacks during our chatting among the travellers. I felt so warm although it was in the midnight in winter time. A great place to recommend!

    Sakura guest house is a good place to stay if you travel with big family. We travel with 7 people and we booked a room with 8 beds which was quite fun and comfortable. The price is value for money. The place is also situated at the one of tourist attractions in Takayame: Hida Onsato, which is quite convenient. Another plus points are free wi-fi and free parking.

    Great little inn. Super quiet at night, comfortable beds, very helpful staff. Good share kitchen facilities and good showers and laundry. We had a car and there was parking there. If you do not have a car it is a quite a bit of a slight uphill walk from the station. It was ideal for our stay of 2 nights in Takayama. If you are after a good Hida beef steak done on the grill try Butchers restaurant.

Not close to restaurants/ grocery etc. The room (Private) was good size and the comforters were very cozy. The showers and toilets were on different floors.

    This is a good place to stay if you come to Takayama by car. It's a little ways out from the train station and center of town--about a mile. (They had some bicycles for rent that looked nice.) The guest house has the feel of nice quality European-style hostel. Our room was simple but spacious and comfortable. Very clean. The kitchen/dining area was really nice and equipped with all you could wish for it you want to fix your own breakfaast or do some simple cooking. We felt we had plenty of privacy. The staff was friendly and helpful.
