We arrived by bus from Matsumoto and got a little lost following the directions on their website. They are actually 2 blocks down a laneway next to the Family Mart so the directions may be a little confusing. We were greeted by the young family running the guesthouse and given lots of information about the area and what we could...

We stayed in August 2012 for four nights in a dorm room... This place is just all round amazing! The owners are a wonderfully friendly family and staying here feels like they're inviting you to be a part of that family (albeit briefly and without any of the downsides that usually insinuates). The rooms are immaculate, as are the shared...

The place is great... very clean and pretty, central, everything you need. The owners are a young couple with (at the time of writing) one baby. They are incredibly friendly and welcoming, and full of useful advice regarding local sights and restaurants. It's worth every penny.

Guesthouse Tomaru is a nice convenient place to stay in Takayama. I stayed 4 nights here and payed extra for the private room. The room was neat and tidy, and will offer you a Japanese experience with tatami floors. There are a list of things that make this place a high consideration for somewhere to stay in Takayama!

If you find a place to stay inTakayama, I really recommend Tomaru guesthouse. It's really a homey place ever although we stayed only 1 night. Shingo and Madoka are really nice and helpful.

Good value, lovely owners with excellent English. Introduced us to single travellers, would be great way to meet others. Very comfortable room, very comfortable bedding. Highly reccomend to anyone wanting budget accommodation with friendly staff. We didnot get there until 9pm due to delayed train and the owners waited for us to arrive.

The couple who own and run Tomaru are perhaps the nicest, most hospitable people you could meet on your travels. They are happy, friendly and very helpful when helping you plan your stay (including great eating out tips!); and their eight-month old is just beautiful! The guesthouse itself is very clean, well maintained and has a relaxing common area if...

Great hosts - friendly and experienced in the tourist industry, both Shingo & Madoka know what world travelers are looking for. The guest house is simple, clean and conveniently located, two minutes from the train station. My friend and I stayed in the double room, and the futons on the floor were a very comfortable sleep. Highly recommended!
