I really enjoyed staying at Ryokan Murayama. The owners were really hospitable and nice. We also ate there for one of the nights and we really enjoyed it. Overall our room was very large and relatively comfortable. The ryokan can use some remodeling and improvements. It all felt very old. The Onsens were ok, it didn’t feel the cleanest. The location is good in a way because you are away from the city so it’s really calm and it feels rural. But if you are doing day trips from Takaya it’s 30 minutes from the station and the walk is not very inspiring. The owner offers 3 times in the morning shuttle to the station and there is bus, specially in the evening when you are returning there is nothing and you have to walk back. I recommend to stay at this place for a traditional Japanese country side experience, knowing that the establishment is not the newest.

Extremely nice Ryokan, the most special place I have been in Japan during my travels so far. Really authentic building and the service is simply perfect, everbody is very nice. The standard and full course dinners are a recommendation and the best ever. All the food and service during dinner was all I could wish for. The japanese breakfast is very good as well. There is a revitalizing onsen open from 1500-2230 and from 0600-0900 where you can refresh. The ryokan even has a bus service from and to the station in takayama and they can also bring your luggage there if you want. 10/10 would recommend going here when you visit japan!!!
