TravelPod Member ReviewsHotakaso Yamano Hotel Takayama
Yamano Hotel is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed. It is almost impossible to find fault with the hotel. Dinner and breakfast were very good, including local specialties like Hida beef, Hida buckwheat noodle, and Hoba miso. They also have two great outdoor bathes with hot springs. The staffers were well trained for warm hospitality.

The train station is very basic, though new major works seem to be underway. We quickly found our hotel and relieved it was a step up on ...
... parade . We got up very close. Oli and Joey had slushies, it was very crowded, lots of food stalls, lots of people. Thoughts for takayama: Oliver - busy, crowded festival, shaved ice drink, great pizza Joseph - bike ride, market and festival Philip ...
In the morning we went to the Miyagawa morning market - it was great, yummy fried chicken. Joey bought Sarubobo dolls. Then we walked up to the Hida village, and explored the old houses. Collected stamps, answered the quiz and got a prize at the end. In the evening we went to Salute for pizza - delicious. We had Margherita pizza with ...
