Ryokan Tanabe is the 4th ryokan we've stayed in on our current trip to Japan and I must say, it stands heads and shoulders above the rest. Like the other reviewers have mentioned, Tanabe's central location is great. It's about 6 minutes walk to Takayama Old Town and the Miyagawa morning market. The rooms are large for what they charge....

The Ryokan is located in the heart of town, a few minutes walk away from the Miyagawa River morning market and San-machi. The location just could not be more convenient for someone to explore Takayama on foot. It is also very close to Honmachi, a street with more upmarket shops, restaurants and cafes. If you walk down this modern shopping...

What a lovely hotel. Efficient, caring and friendly staff and the meals were beautifully presented and served. A wonderful experience. I was a little concerned when my travel agent suggested this hotel but she was 100% correct. It would have been an absolute shame to stay in a western style hotel in Takayama like I have done in the past.

From reservation to check out, everything was perfect. Mrs Tanabe answered our mails swiftly and even reserved our bus trip further on to Kanazawa. Japanese service all the way! We had a Yubokuan room with private wooden bath. Dinner and breakfast were a real Japanese experience. Staff were very nice. Highly recommended !

The staff were wonderfully friendly and helpful. They made our stay even more enjoyable. The rooms are large and traditional with tatami...
