Adorable ryokan in Takayama. It is not a secret to anyone that hospitality in Japan is remarkable.||They picles up us at Takayama Station on time. The ryokan is 5 minutes from Main Street of the city.||The dinner was spetacular with several japanese options. We loved the experience! The breakfast was also amazing. We are not used to eat huge meal with rice,but the rice and miso were só good and We ate twice.||Thank you team for all hospitaly. We collected a good memories with our stay.

Absolutely loved this charming ryokan and it was the highlight of our fortnight in Japan. The location is perfect - only a ten minute walk into the centre of Takayama - and very peaceful. The staff catered well for our needs (two of us are vegetarian) and the food was never ending - course after course of Japanese morsels arrived. We also made good use of the onsens, which were very relaxing. The price is very reasonable for what is provided.
