The Hakuun Hotel was a typical Japanese Ryokan situated on top of a small hill overlooking the city. Magnificent views! We took a slow walk from the Takayama train station to the hotel as we wanted to view the old town along the way and have lunch there too. The last stretch trekking up the somewhat steep snow covered road...

This is a well run authentic ryokan with many great features. Spacious comfy rooms with raised beds, separate lounge area and a bathroom with its own wooden bathtub. Fantastic onsen and a great breakfast in a beautiful tatame dining room. Super helpful staff. Location perhaps difficult if walking but we had a car so no issue. Had a brilliant stay....

We came to Takayama to relax for a few days before heading to the big lights of Tokyo and this ryokan did not disappoint! We walked from the train station and the hotel was a little hard to find at first - located up a steep hill on the other side of town. We had an amazing room at the...

Very friendly staff. Breakfast was excellent. The public baths were clean and not crowded at all. Rooms are big, we had our own shower but used thr public bath each evening. Overall, an amazing ryokan experience. The way uphill was a bit inconvenient especially the first time with our bagpacks. But not a problem if you don't have luggage and...

We had the best time staying here for 3 nights, just wished we'd stayed longer. Perfectly located for us, although the uphill walk from the town may not suit everyone, close to some lovely walking trails and not far to walk to the centre of town. The hotel itself is completely charming, our room was like a suite with a...

I was really looking forward to staying at this ryokan after reading good reviews and seeing its location at the edge of Shiroyama Park. We got a reasonable price for two rooms. I called them from the train station to request the shuttle service. No one spoke English that day, but I got through with some broken Japanese and the...

If there is one word I would use to describe our stay here, I would use the word lukewarm. It's not a badly run place, but it pales in comparison with many others we have been to. The ryokan is very much a business. The quality of the staff varies. Some are really warm and friendly. Others are deadpan and...

We stayed one night in this ryokan and felt welcomed from the first second. The room was clean and well kempt. The two onsens are perfect to calm down - especially in the evening with a wonderful view over the city.
