Location was very pleasant. The ryokan was in a traditional hut, located by and with views of the river. The booking experience was good as the ryokan responded promptly to my online queries and gave instructions on pick up clearly. Food was excellent - traditional Japanese Kaiseki. We enjoyed both breakfast and dinner very much.

A charming rustic place. Comfortable and pleasing. Food was good. The living and showering areas could get really cold so I would suggest improving on this aspect. Another point of improvement would be the response time via email.

Simply amazing!
Absolutely one of the best experiences we've ever had. We stayed in the Kariyasu Villa overlooking the stream at the end of the property. The breakfast and dinner were astonishingly unbelievable. All of the dishes were of local specialties or Japanese: river fishes, sashimi, Hida beef, and so on. So if you're not open to fully experience Japanese cuisine, then try more westernized hotels and don't go to a traditional ryokan. The quality is beyond or like any Michelin starred restaurant we've been to and the quantity: come hungry! We were served by the kindest and warmest people. Sure, the English is more simplified, but we're in Japan! If you want fluent English, probably best not to go to other countries other than US or UK. Also, it's the twentieth century: Google Translate! We stayed 4 days/3 nights and enjoyed the onsen every night and day ... at our last day we even went twice! They switch the female and male onsens in the morning & evening. We were by ourselves for the most part and preferred the room with rock tubs. The evenings around the fire with hot sake was truly magical. The room does get smokey, but if you listened/learned a little about ryokans and traditional Japanese homes, it's to keep the building from rotting and repels the insects. In all, we are already talking about when we can again treat ourselves to go back!

Delightful Experience in Ryokan
We have a fantastic experience of a traditional Ryokan. Staff were so hospitable and the food was exquisite. Our rooms were overlooking the stream and in the big house which we enjoyed. Glad we stayed 2 nights and it was a welcome break from the city trip. We enjoyed the Bamboo Sake Magic tricks by the fire and meeting up with other guest. They have a limited free shuttle service but taxis were easily arranged for our early morning departure. We enjoyed wearing the robes and they have two segregated insensitivity. I liked the large wooden bath in our room. It made a great lasting memory in such a fascinating count.

Friendly staff, Amazing property albeit a bit dated which may add to its rustic charm. The location is 20 mins by car away from Takayama so take that into account, but they do have a shuttle that you can schedule. I would definitely stay here again.
