nice but there are better”
Arranged to be picked up by the shuttle service but no one turned up so ended up getting a taxi and claiming the fare back. The evening meal and breakfast were excellent. Biggest disappointment was that there was no private Onsen to spend time with your partner of the opposite sex. We have stayed at the Fugiya Onsen and all round that was better. The Saki drinking with the older gentleman was a unique and very good experience though and I would recommend any one who stays here to join him, he is a true character. I would recommend this place but it doesn’t quite tick all the boxes
Beautiful space, friendly staff”
I was blown away by how beautiful the space was. A little rustic, but that is characteristic for Takayama. The staff spoke a surprising amount of English, and what we lost in translation, they made up for in friendliness and warmth. Our primary waiter Mika-San was particularly kind, as was the driver, whose name I didn’t catch. All in all, a FANTASTIC stay.
Best Ryokan :)”
Pleasant stay. We could not ask for better room, better food or better service. :)
Exceptional traditional experience”
In a world of modern "chain" experiences, our time at the Wano Sato Ryokan was in contrast a stimulating immersion into old Japan. The meals were delicious and exquisite in its presentation which matched the tranquility and stunning view from our room. The ritual of bathing in the onsen (hot spring bath) perfectly completed the stay.
Great location but the facilities show their age. This is a resort past its prime and needs refresh.”
This is no five star. The location besides a gushing stream is the best part.
A simply wonderful once in a lifetime experience”
With a mountain stream running in from of every window in the room (as well as in front of the public baths and dining room), the view and atmosphere is ethereal. The location is 10 minutes outside of Takayama and the Hida cultural park - far enough away to be in another world, close enough to see the sites with easy. The Kaseike dinner and breakfast was top rate - served in our room. Fully modern bathroom attached to a multi-room suite which could have been built yesterday - or one hundred years ago. For a rare Japanese experience this is highly recommended!
Great location old facilities”
Great place with old facilities. The staff is great, the place is beautiful the diner in the first day was amazing and in the second day not as good as the first day. Rooms a little bit cold but huge and comfortable.
Very remote but one of a kind with nature around. Unique accommodation experience. Superb dining quality.
Best experience ever. Couldn't express how perfect is our experience in Wa no Sato Ryokan. Their staff are so nice and heart warming. Everything is settled and handled nicely and detailed. Although not many of them could speak a lot of english it doesnt really matter as all of them are so willing to help and communicate with you. Must mention that the meal provided were so delicious. Definitely would like to spend more time in this ryokan next time. Our room has a scenic view so do both public bath rooms.
Most relaxing hotel!”
The stream running next to the ryokan and the view from our room was so tranquil and bliss. Also the onsen is beautiful. It's great because there are two; a rocky one, and a wooden one. In the mornings the rocky onsen is female, then they swap in the afternoon. Beautiful hotel, would highly recommend.
Beyond my expectations”
This ryokan is a destination. The ambiance, service and setting make this a place to explore and experience. If you want a dinner in Old Town don't eat anywhere buy Koya. Another top notch establishment.
Wa no sati ryokan is awesome ”
The staff is very nice. They served us very good.
The best ryokan”
Excellent. It was memorable.
Vraiment authentique !”
Ryokan très authentique, au confort simple et services minimalistes mais avec une vraie atmosphère d'un autre temps. La chambre très spacieuse et avec de grandes baies vitrées sur la forêt et la rivière donnent l'impression de dormir au milieu de la forêt. Ma femme étant frileuse nous avons demandé des chauffages d'appoint car la chambre était assez froide (15° au petit matin). Les repas étaient excellent et variés sur les 3 jours de notre séjour. Le service était aux petits soins même s'il n'y avait par exemple pas de service de blanchisserie. L'atmosphère le soir à boire du saké chaud au coin du feu était envoutante. Dommage de ne pas pouvoir utiliser le onsen en couple.
