Stayed here 2 nights recently. I came directly from Tokyo. So it was a nice change. Nakao was very good at communicating via email before I arrived. She answered all my questions and gave detailed instructions (in English) on how to get there from the train station in Takayama. They were super nice in person, as well. There isn't much... More

Our night at Nakaodaira was excellent. The owners were very response to our emails on how to get to the hotel. They also gave us a very useful map of the area for finding great locations for hiking and sightseeing the area. We had the dinner and it was excellent! Every course was delicious.

We stayed in Nakaodaira at the end of September. Having booked it online, we had an email from Naoko within 24 hours with helpful information about how to get to the hotel. This attention to detail continued throughout our stay and were in awe of all the kindness and consideration shown. The room was clean and spacious. We slept on... More

We arrived here in the late evening after spending half the day getting to Takayama and then half the day sightseeing. Takayama is beautiful but if it weren't for this Ryokan I think I would have been disappointed. Takayama is quite far so I was feeling a little cheated. Going up the mountain to Nakaodira in the dark had me... More

This was a splurge for me, as I usually stay in hostels when I travel. But it was totally worth it! My room was very cosy and clean. There are only six rooms and also six private onsen that you can use 24/7. Perfect for me since I have a few tattoos and haven't tried to use the public onsen... More

My wife and I spent our honeymoon in Japan, and the two nights at Nakaodaira were the highlight of the trip. We spent the days hiking around the Japanese alps; there are hikes accessible directly from the hotel, but we walked to the Shinhotaka ropeway and did a day hike higher up in the mountains. In the evenings, we recuperated... More

I stayed there for 2 nights and had a wonderful experience. It is about 40 minutes away by bus to Kamikochi, and only 10 minutes away from the Shin-Hotaka ropeway. It is a family-owned hotel and has only six rooms, four indoor baths, and two outdoor baths. All baths are private and are available 24 hours a day. The service... More

This is a beautiful, rustic property in a very picturesque location with lovely views of the Japanese Alps. The rooms are very well appointed, comfortable and the onsens are magical. The owner is delightful and speaks English very well – a pleasure to be able to communicate. I highly recommend a stay at Nakaodaira.
