My wife and I have been to Japan on long vacation trips three times in the last six years or so, and we've always treated ourselves to a couple of ryokan stays on each trip. Our stay at Takinoya was definitely the most expensive stay,...More

We arrived at 3 pm and unlike some of the other reviews here we experienced a very warm welcome, including matcha and red bean cake. The English proficiency in this ryokan is moderate, but we had no trouble communicating with the staff. We stayed at...More
Spacious modern decorated room with the touch of Japanese Style. The room was very clean and the service was great. Dinner and Breakfast were served inside the room. Definitely a must visit Onsen place if you have a chance to visit Hokkaido

Hi Steven: I don't recall the opening and closing hours for Takinoya's public onsen baths. Both baths were really nice though, and I'd definitely try to fit in a visit to them both during your stay. The bath on the bottom floor is quite large and accommodates a lot of people, but the smaller onsen on the top floor (it has an open view of the mountain and a no-horizon kind of view) is only large enough for 3 or 4 people. We staid in a rather large western/japanese style accomodation. It had a separate dining room where we ate both dinner and breakfast by ourselves. The dining room had a separate entrance for the lady who brought the food and waited on us. When we arrived, this lady brought green tea and sweet for us as a welcome, and then asked us what times we would prefer dinner and breakfast the following morning. Takinoya was really a great experience for us. Hope you get a chance to stay there, and have a wonderful time.
I booked 3 months before my intended stay. But, now it's already the end of April, I don't think it's way too early to book 9 months ahead. Maybe you can call the hotel to enquire or log on to the roykan collection website... More
I booked 3 months before my intended stay. But, now it's already the end of April, I don't think it's way too early to book 9 months ahead. Maybe you can call the hotel to enquire or log on to the roykan collection website (Takinoya is one of the hotels which you can book through the roykan collection website) to check. They've people from the office in Tokyo to answer your questions and they're quick to respond.
