The young lady who attended to us, Chihiro, was very friendly and ensured our needs were taken care. Her attention to detail was excellent and it did...

The best experience in Japan. We are a couple that has visited it during December 2016. Just enter to this ryokan you will feel like transported to another world. Fitted perfectly on the small and cute Takayama village. Take a room with hot bath inside, you won't regret it. Enormous room and nice hot bath semi open to the mountains....

We drove to the hotel and the staff helped us to park the car and brought our luggage to room. Hospitality is excellant. Our room is huge, very comfortable with good views of the town. We had dinner and breakfast...
