This Ryokan is simply amazing, the decoration of the place is just fantastic, you get that old "traditional" atmosphere since the very first step into the house, which in itself feels like a very awesome museum; yet the house has all the modern commodities you can wish for. It is located close to the river with views to it and...

A stay in a traditional Ryokan was on my to do list for visiting Japan and Sumiyoshi did not let me down. It was wonderful. We stayed two nights and I just fell in love with this place. From the hard working, lovely elderly owners who wave you off down the street to the stray well fed cat who looks...

Beautiful place to stay with beautiful people running it. They let me check-in early. The room was lovely and it had a heater which made it even more cosy. There are communal/shared bathrooms and toilets. I used the small bathroom on the ground floor and there was a small onsen in there too. It's great, as when you use the...

Not much to add here to what was said in other reviews, just that it was our family's favorite accommodation in Japan. It is a special place with special people running it. We stayed here during the Takayama Fall festival, which takes place just across the river. Very convenient. Food was great. and the hot tub will get you addicted.

This ryokan is hidden away, by the river. The owner and staff are charming and welcoming. We were given a large room opening to the river. It is the sort of place that makes you reluctant to leave and explore the city.

We wanted to make sure we stayed in at least one Ryokan during our trip to Japan - we definitely weren't disappointed with Sumiyoshi. We were greeted with matcha tea on arrival and taken to our room - a very traditional tatami-mat room (we went for one with a private bathroom). The view of the river from our room was...

Great place to try a ryokan. Such a friendly place, lovely people and they looked after us so well. Little English spoken but it didn't matter at all. The home spun experience was great. Our room overlooked the river and we sat at the window listening to the sound of the water. Dinner in our room in our kimonos was...

What a great way to relax for a few days. Excellent location. Our 2 night stay included one dinner and of course breakfast each morning. The Sushi Dinner was excellent and the presentation was outstanding. The hot bath was perfect in every way. This is a must stop if you are anywhere near Takayama.

I stayed there for 2 nights and the staff is extremely helpful and friendly. Location is superb. It's by the river and most of the touristic spots are within walking distance. I would definitely recommend if you are also looking for a traditional Japanese accommodation.
