We stayed with our family in a wonderful family room tucked away on the ground floor. It was perfect as we didn't have to worry about the kids disturbing the whole inn. The room was enourmous, with a lovely raised tatami sleeping area as well as a dining table and couches. All beautifully presented. We loved our stay and loved...

I stayed here in September 2011 for 2 nights with my friend whilst travelling around Japan. Staff were very helpful and polite and understanding when I almost wasn't able to make it due to a typhoon which had engulfed most of Japan. Good location too, only about a 10 minute walk from the bus and train station. The room was...

We selected this hotel after positive reviews on Trip Advisor and it's reasonable pricing. It did not let us down! Booking and conversing over email with the reception staff was a delight. Rickshaw Inn is a charming inn in a sleepy town - we were on the first floor and although we did meet other guests, we always had the...

We spent 2 nights at the Rickshaw Inn. The communication by e-mail before our trip was perfect. We had a triple japanese room. It was comfortable, with a western bathroom. I think it is a good compromize between japanese and western style. All costumers were european during our stay (august 2010). If you are looking for a very japanese experience,...

The Rickshaw Inn was easy to find (as per their directions), comfortable, warm and perfectly accommodating. We had a room on the top floor. It had a basin in the foyer, and the bathroom was down the hallway. There was also a lounge, TV and table, which made for a very cosy place to sit and enjoy a few too...

We loved our time at the rickshaw. As they do a great job catering to foreigners, their occupancy is way down still in June due to post earthquake anxiety stress (P.E.A.s). As such was a great time to be here as we had place to ourselves. Ditto it seemed for the whole town yet spectacular time of year with sun...

My daughter and I stayed at here for the Spring festival in April, only weeks after the earthquake and tsunami. We were enthusiastically welcomed as many travellers had cancelled their plans. Our room was large, clean, quiet and comfortable with en suite facilities and soft bedding on the tatami mat floor. The kitchen provided everything to self cater but with...

We stayed here for 3 nights after our group tour ended in Kyoto. The location is fantastic, right in the heart of Takayama. The staff are all friendly and helpful. The room was roomy and exceptionally clean. As a bonus it has a great "living room" with comfortable couches and a great selection of reading materials. Also a microwave and...

We stayed at the Rickshaw Inn for 2 nights on a 15 day trip to Japan. We had a little difficulty finding the inn and I'd recommend a better map than the one we had. It really is very easy once you know where to go. We were warmly welcomed and shown our Japanese style room which was lovely. There...
