We stayed in the Japanese Style Room and we were very pleased it! The bed was comfortable and they had a nice heater that warms up the room pretty fast. There was also a small sitting area with sofa and a table. The toilet and bath was spacious (in Japanese terms) and clean, all basic toiletries were provided for. There...

The room, Japanese style, with private bathroom was of great comfort. The lounge, and facilities were tidy and with great atmosphere. I want to mention the outstanding quality of service delivered by Eguro. I am sure he loves what he does, and therefore, his service is genuine and with great professionalism and quality. I will recommend this [place with my...

The place was clean and spacious. The host was extremely friendly and helpful. we did not take up the breakfast package because we thought we could do better than the bread and jam outside. The toilet can certainly do with a bidet system, which we thought was a standard feature, even in some public toilets we encounter in Tokyo. Pardon...

This inn is really beautiful, the owners are gentle and helpful, our room was big and the tatami we had were great, they didn't smell at all like other people wrote.

We visited Takayama in December and stayed here for a night. We paid a very reasonable price for our family room at Rickshaw Inn as compared to the many overpriced ryokans & hotels.
