As part of our trip through Japan of 4 weeks we visited Takayama. When you look at places to stay in Takayama there are many places to go to in this relative touristic hotspot. As a preparation we read many reviews and this place was a good place to enjoy a ryokan experience in Japan without spending hugely per night.... More

13 of us were met at the station right on time and driven through the centre of beautiful snow-covered Takayama to cosy, welcoming, antique and art-filled Oyado Yamakyu located a short walk down to town and in a very pretty area of shrines, walking tracks and old houses. Friendly Yoshiko and the rest of the smiling staff have all the... More

12 of us stayed here for 3 nights in late November, and it was wonderful. The front of house staff (special mention to Koichi) were so obliging and pleasant, starting with picking us up at the train station when we arrived and finishing up with presenting us with photographs they took of our group during our stay.

Extremely comfortable accommodations, elaborate and fun meals, and a great Japanese bath make this a good choice when staying in Takayama. A longer walk from the station but located right next to a bunch of temples on the north side of town. The inn met us with a van at the train and brought us to Yamakyu for check-in, which... More

I had stayed in one Ryokan previously to this one, and I am getting used to the wonderful personalised service provided at them. It is different to staying in a hotel. it is more like a bed and breakfast which makes it more communal and intimate. This was a beautiful old building, with gorgeous gardens and spacious well equipped rooms.... More

We had a fabulous time at Oyado Yamakyu. It was the first Ryokan we had stayed in so it was surprising at first to see that there was no bed!

Greatu rates, wonderful onsen, and more food than even the biggest appetite can handle...the staff was fabulous (a worker spent 1/2 hour at the end of her day to help my daughter dress in her kimono and obi properly) and the eclectic decor was wonderful.
