My friend & I stayed here for 2 nights in January during a very snowy time. Takayama was like a magical little town all covered in white and the ryokan was the perfect place to experience this. The older couple + friends who run the place are amazing. We could only really communicate in hand gestures but they were really...

We only were able to book a single night at this fabulous ryokan, but would've probably stayed two nights if we had been able to. Takayama itself is a fascinating village, the only one of its kind left in Japan with so many old houses. The ryokan itself is sprawling and if you get one of the second story rooms...

We felt very special during our stay at Sumiyoshi Ryokan. Me and my family enjoyed our night here. The staff and owners were very helpful, accommodating and friendly. They helped us get our luggage in our room upon check-in, carried our bags and even sent us to the taxi stand after check-out. Absolutely a perfect holiday in Takayama because of...

Only stayed here for one night while briefly in Takayama. Its a nice little Ryokan run by and older couple. They speak very limited English but they will get you setup, checked in quickly and help out if they can. I recommended the included local breakfast that gets served in your room and it's quite delicious. The room we stayed...

Had high expectations after reading reviews and we were not disappointed. Were given a free upgrade to a river view room (it was a quiet period) and very much appreciated the extra space. The owners and staff are so welcoming, with extra special energy and cheekiness from Sumiko, who made mealtimes a delight. The food is fantastic and highly recommend...

Many of the reviews for the Sumiyoshi Ryokan view the old building through rose coloured glasses, looking to find aspects that are quaint and which represent something unique in Japan. We would agree with that, but if you are older, your bones are a bit tired or you have any form of back pain then don't choose a ryokan where...

Everything was so lovely, from the welcoming grin of Sumiko who greeted us, to the full Japanese treatment of staying in a ryokan. The Japanese breakfast was lavish and always appetising. The rooms were clean and beautifully appointed. The Japanese bath was wonderful. It was a only little distance from the railway station - perhaps 500m, and was very easy...

I stayed for 3 nights with daily breakfast and tried the dinner once, they were perfect and i love the miso especially. The room and onsen were exactly the same as they were seen in the photos. I love the onsen and practically used it every night! The owners were very polite and accommodating, however they were very respectful to...

Stayed for 4 days 3 nights in lovely Takayama town. It's really well maintained for a 100 year old Inn. Sumi-Chan and the rest are simply lovely!

The room is a bit small but it was clean and cozy. The in-room dining is impressive. The staff are old lady and man who will try their best to communicate with you in English. They are kind and considerate. There are 3 public bathrooms which could be lock for private use. Highly recommend for traveller who wanted to experience...
