We stayed 2 nights, dinner & breakfast included. This is a traditional Ryokan, shoes off at the door. Futons on the floor. Meals served in your room. The staff change your room from dinning to sleeping & back to dinning for you. The food was amazing, so many dishes, the language barrier meant we didn't always know what everything was,...

This ryokan is in a great location about 10 minutes walk from the train and bus stations and close to all the main sights. The ladies who run it were very sweet and our room was warm, comfortable, well-lit and immaculate although the walls seemed rather thin and we heard our neighbours apparently laughing heartily at a TV programme. The...

There are many room size, facility, location as well as menu choices. Larger room with own bath and toilet; smaller room with shared toilet; room with a private yard etc. etc..... For the experience, should try classic breakfast and dinner at least once. You can also opt for steak dinner. Different price of course. Meals included are optional. Great location,...

A really funny experience during the honeymoon. Beautiful ryokan located in the center of Takayama. Excellent food prepared just inside the rooms (both dinner and breakfast). The leading madame of the hotel is really nice, but a little bit dictatorial :-), I say that with love. There is an onsen inside and it was a relaxing experience. The bed was...

Ryokan Tanabe is very conveniently located, just a few steps from the heart of the old city and some of the main attractions. Nearby there are nice coffees and sake bars for the evening. The Ryokan itself is nicely appointed and well kept. Staff is extremely friendly and welcoming. The rooms are nice, however not all offer a lot of...

We stayed in this ryokan for 2 nights and we were completely thrilled. Mrs. Tanabe, who’s father originally created the ryokan, is a wonderful lady and an amazing professional. And she is very proud of the ryokan, and with a very good reason. We had booked just the room (no breakfast nor dinner) as it was a last minute booking...

Very clean & comfortable accomodation we spent 2 nights here, we are a little older & we found it quite a distance from the station with suitcases. It is very convenient to shops & restaurants. Found it a little expensive to eat breakfast & dinner at ryokan.

Ryokan Tanabe has very good location in Takayama, staff is very friendly and will take good care of you, spotlessly clean, in-room-dining is amazing, has private bath, walking distance to morning market and old town, dead middle of all kinds of restaurants, convenience store just practically next door across the street. The indoor onsen is very nice as well. Docking...
