Absolutely wonderful!!

Words cannot begin to describe the memorable experience we had. We stayed for 3 nights and everything was sensational. The food, the traditional Japanese room and of course our beautiful hostess Chihiro Higashi.

Excellent

Posted May 31, 2017
Pros: EVERYTHING
Cons: Nothing need improvement
Location: Excellent location, lots of things to see and do.
Staff makes you feel like a king. They all treat you like a friend especially the maid assigned to take care of all your needs. Ours was Masae and she was superb. Last year we had Chihiro and when she heard we had checked in, she came to say hello

Perfect Location for Attending the Spring Festival

Posted Apr 21, 2017 on Hotels
We were lucky to get a last minute booking here for the first day of the Takayama Spring Festival. The location of the hotel is prime for the festival. We had a view of the floats being moved throughout the city from the balcony of our room. The hotel is located right at the Nakabashi Bridge where all the action occurs, including the marionette performance. Definitely spring for the river view rooms, well worth it. The room itself, including the bathroom, is small but functional. The sleeping futons were very comfortable and we enjoyed the ryokan experience. The service at the hotel was excellent. I emailed them ahead of time and they had a person waiting at the bus station holding a sign with our name. They also provided transportation back to the train station after our stay. Dinner was excellent and served in the room. The breakfast was served in the dining room and we were given a choice of Japanese or Western fare. The English spoken by the staff was the best we experienced in all of Japan. Takayama is definitely set up for tourism but it doesn't feel overrun. A very charming town and well worth a visit.

The full ryokan experience in the best location.

A great hotel, right next to the river. The full ryokan experience including dinner in your room, and an on-Sen on the roof. Comfortable futons and bedding. Choice of Japanese or western breakfasts.
