I visited Japan for the first time (2016) with my wife... having experienced many hot springs at various hotels around the country, this was something else! The experience here was AMAZING! This Onsen hotel is located a bus trip away from takayama station, so the route up gave us great views of the mountaineous area before reaching the hotel itself...

We drove along the serpentines of the Hira mountains for what seemed for hours. The roads are kept in good condition, nevertheless one should add some 15 percent to what the GPS tells you. Finally we arrived and were given the explanations of the whereabout, then shown to our room. We had ample space for a family of four. Into...

It was beautiful.The outdoor onsen was spectacular. The breakfast and dinner was such a delight. Loved everything about this place! The best part was most of the time we had the onsen all to ourselves.

We had high expectations for Suimeikan Karukaya Sanso and we weren't let down. It's set on a quiet road on the way to the Shin-Hotaka Ropeway. We traveled from Tokyo via Toyama and the bus from there (nouhibus) dropped us right out the front. The building is comfortable, quiet and warm. The rooms seem typical of the ryokan style but...

We wanted a nice outdoor onsen in the mountains and were not dissapointed. The place was a little hard to find as we went by bus, but no problem with a GPS. We had a small room, pretty cheap, they have bigger ones as well. There are 3 private outdoor onsens, very nice! One big outdoor onsen, mixed, and 2...

The hotel staff is ever so friendly, giving my family and I an brief introduction of the hotel upon arrival/check-in. The hotel also served us dinner which was delicious. The hot springs are very relaxing. This is perfect spot for a family weekend.

e stayed here in November 2015. We came from Kamikochi and passed through Hirayu to get here, and took the Nohi bus in the direction of the Shin Hotaka ropeway. We'd been so worried that the bus wouldn't actually stop near the place and we'd be left lost wandering around a busy road with luggage, but in fact it stopped...

We didn't stay in the ryokan - but took the bus from Takayama for the day. The outdoor onsen is beautiful - a huge, steaming pool set on the river with mountain views. Different areas have slightly different temperatures. There's also a private ladies bath (really beautiful, but no views) and some private baths (didn't use). There was only one...

Regret to have chosen this onsen hotel. Expensive with poor value for money. Facilities very raw and seems not well maintained. Rooms facing the mountain side are incredibly small. Will never choose an onsen hotel without a private bathroom like this one again...very inconvenient. Meals of average quality and not impressive. Outdoor onsen is big and unique. Yet, more privacy...

The staffs were very welcoming and friendly. Onsen experience was excellent. There are few types of private and open baths with different settings. Both my partner and I feel that the food can be improved. We are frequent Japan travellers and have tried different Ryokans before.
