The location was close to main spots in Hida-Furukawa, it was a very comfortable ryokan as I had read in the reviews. The decorations and the seasonal arrangements such as Hina-Dolls were very nicely organized. As they call themselves a Ryotei-Ryokan, the food was very good. When I made the booking they had told me no children under 7, so I had thought it was only comfortable for adults but my two sons enjoyed their time there too. I would love to go back again. + More
It was a great place, the food was wonderful and the service was pleasant, the buildings and the rooms were settling and we had a very relaxing time. The location along the river and the surrounding temples were a nice environment, we could not go anywhere due to the rain but it was still enjoyable. If the weather had been nice, we would have gone for a walk. The area around Takayama, has an atmosphere like Kyoto a little while back, my partner commented. We would love to come back again. + More
This accommodation is a great place being true to it's reputation with a historical and traditional background. You can enjoy the local Sake and sweet fish which is a specialty from Hida-Furukawa that you can only enjoy when in season. The renovated suite with a private bath was very nice and the amenities were impeccable, we could feel the detailed hospitality of a long-established Ryokan. If you are traveling to Takayama, this place is worth the extra trip. + More
We have not been so satisfied in a while, it is a wonderful place to experience. I heard it was a registered tangible cultural property so had the image of it being old so, I was surprised that it was beautifully maintained. The best thing here was the meals. Everything was delicious and my girlfriend who was not feeling too well was satisfied too. We ate a lot, enjoyed the hot spring and slept well, it was all very refreshing. I am looking forward to our next visit. + More
From the time of checking in till the time we checked out, we felt the detailed and warm hospitality of the staff. The rooms, and all the public space was well maintained and very refreshing. The meals were all satisfying and delicious. I was disappointed that the bath in the room was not a hot spring, but when we opened the doors it was really spacious and nice, we could also enjoy the view of the snow too. The wood stove in the living space was relaxing, so I would love to come back to the room again. + More
