The inn was very nice, and the staff was kind (though they spoke very little English). The rooms were clean and had great views. The toilet room was very tight, your knees were very close to the door. Also, you need to be comfortable with your roommate as the shower opens directly onto the room with no where to towel off or dress in between. Sleeping on the futons was a little difficult but that just takes some getting use to. The best part was that on our second night it rained and we opened our windows, very peaceful. There is limited WiFi access and only in the lobby (connecting to the hot spot created by an I phone in the lobby). The location was great for visiting the near by folk village.

Room Tip: Rooms in the second building have garden/wooded views, and some rooms have views of small water pools.

I enjoyed the traditional authentic environment. The common bathroom and eating area. It's clean and well kept. Breakfast was good. I felt like being a queen feasting in the unique dinning area. The dinning area has a heating stove. Very antique. Very memorable experience. I want to return but cannot book any more. Will it be open for booking again?

We have stayed in a few ryokan and this was the smallest of all the places. Nonetheless, it was very clean with towels, a kettle and toiletries in the room.

The place took a little finding. You turn left at the Teddy bear museum if you are coming from Takayama and it is the last building at the top of the hill. If you can read Japanese there are building names on the signs outside the ryokan.

The owners seemed friendly enough and we were given a to help us navigate around the building. It was more like a hot where you are told where to go whereas other places show you to your room and make you feel more at home. You do need to make your bed here and once laid out there wasn't that much room. The main area of the room is divided from the dressing area so luggage can be stored in that part.

We did think it was a bit expensive for what we got and having stayed at other places we think this is a decent ryokan but not the best out there.

A great place for who is seeking tranquility and nature. A special mention for the kindness and flexibility of staff (especially Yugo at the reception).
The hotel is located outside of the city (near the village Hida-no-sato) but it is accessible by bus during the day, or taxi for about $ 10. Moreover, the hotel may pick up clients at the station on request.
I recommend taking the full board at least once: the meal and especially the beautiful dining room with irori are worth the trip. Also the garden of the hotel is a marvel.
I have enjoyed this place so much when I discovered it that I went back a few days later !

We stayed at this Ryokan during the Takayama festival in April. It was easy to catch the bus to get there, but a little hard to lug our bags up the hill. The offering of tea upon check in around a sunken hearth fire was a lovely appproach. Our rooms were clean and well presented and the staff are friendly and helpful. The communal bath was very relaxing and there was a massage chair and a foot massager which also did your calves and after a long day of walking it was heaven. We were advised before we arrived that if you werent eating at the Ryokan that there were no places locally to eat and to bring food from Takayama which we did, so no problem. We stayed two nights, the first night the people upstairs sounded like elephants walking around, but the second night most guests had left so very quiet. If you want a traditional Ryokan experience then this is the place, it is old but that is part of the experience.The only thing we werent told was that we had to pay cash upon check out,which we managed to do, we were being driven to the station by the manager so he was willing to stop by a ATM for us to get cash if we didn't have enough so no dramas.

Room Tip: Ask for an upstairs room if they are fully booked as the floors are wooden and you can hear every footstep if you are downstairs.
