Perfect relaxing getaway
A bit far from everything, but owners arranged to pick us up at Hirayu bus station which made it very easy to get to the ryokan!
The private (in our room) & public onsens, food, hospitality! Location is stunning - in the middle of mountains!

No laundry facilities - but the staff very kindly washed and dried our son’s clothes for us. We could not for the life of us work out how the kettle in our room worked.
AMAZING food, lovely staff, very welcoming of our toddler son. Our private outdoor onsen was awesome.

Not a great spot if you don't have a car and want to go for a walk, as we did before dinner. But you come for the ryokan experience, so forget about anything else and just enjoy being there.
Wonderful. A great spot in the mountains. Incredible food. Loved having room with private outdoor bath. Such a relaxing experience. Staff so friendly.

The staff Ms Miho was exceptionally helpful by giving me the detailed instructions on how to reach their Ryokan through email. She was courteous and helpful throughout my stay. The outdoor onsen was nice.

perfect stay in the mountains near Takayama
Very friendly and helpful hosts, very good dinner and breakfast, nice ofuro and spacious room. Host drove us from and to a bus terminal nearby,saved time (bus stop in front of ryokan). 25 minutes trip only to gorgeous Kamikochi nature trails.

Perfect Alps Retreat
We loved staying here. There is a bus stop right outside which makes it really accessible, no need for private car. The staff are all so friendly, polite and welcoming. It was quite so we got upgraded to a maisonette room which was heavenly. The outside onsen is amazing and was perfect after a day trekking in the Alps. Finally, as other reviews have said, the food is incredible. Totally worth the expense.

We stayed there for the Takayama Festival and was too far really but that's not their fault, they were very helpful in directions and buses etc.
Lovely rooms, great onset & excellent food. Very helpful staff too, wish we could have stayed longer.

A must if you're staying in Takayama or want to try a Ryokan.
The futons take some getting used to, but if you're going for authenticity then this is the place to stay. It's also a little bit out of the way, as it takes an hour by bus from Takayama -but it's so worth it.
The included breakfast and dinner was some of the best food we had on our trip, so much care in preperation and presentation (also vegetarian options). The outdoor ryokan was spectacular particularly when it started to snow. Last but definitely not least the staff were amazing, they really went above and beyond. This has by far been the best stay we have had in Japan. I would love to come back.

A memorable winter trip
Just wonder if the dishes served during breakfast or dinner can be made into a simple menu with notes written. Also need to know which dish is to be taken first or in the sequence as we were given a whole lots of dishes on the table for dinner.
Really appreciate the extra attention given before our arrival concerning food allergies. The ryokan was a bit far from Hirayu onsen station but the transport provided was good. Excellent dinner and it was a very memorable experience. The owner was not fluent in English but enough to understand her.

Beautiful, peaceful, isolated ryokan with great food
The property is isolated from most other attractions, so if you go you should understand it's more like a spa, where you should spend your time relaxing, not planning on seeing many sights... Which is fine if you understand that!
Absolutely beautiful, peaceful ryokan with wonderful food and wonderful staff. We had a room with a private onsen and it was amazing and so relaxing.

Perfect romantic retreat!
Would have loved a full or queen bed in the room instead of 2 twins.
Amazing dinner. Loved the private outdoor bath in our room. Staff was very accommodating to food allergies and our complete lack of Japanese language. Very accessible from Takayama by bus. Stop is literally in front of the hotel.

Even the hotel located infront of bus stop, we need to use only nohi bud to the hotel from Takayama station.
Staff was friendly and had service mind. The decorations in the ryokan was fantastic. There were indoor, outdoor and private onsen in ryokan.

Snowing when we checked out hotel
1) The yummy dinner and breakfast. 2) The public onsen and private onsen (paid). But both are very nice and comfortable. 3) Excellent service of the staff. We need check-out at 8:30am to catch the plane. The staff moved our breakfast time to 7:30am. Appreciated for the arrangement.
