This minshuku i very central and walking distance from the train station. It was a very homely place to stay with a good bath house within the building. Room and beds were comfy.

... we are presented with an array of breakfast delights - cold salmon with a sweet sauce and vegetables, various pickles and tofu, sizzling Hida beef, miso soup, rice, a plate of omelette smothered in tomato ketchup with salad and a banana?? This was topped off with Japanese tea and then coffee. The presentation and service was excellent, and if I had been given this at 7.30pm rather than 7.30am I am sure I would have been able to eat the lot. David ...
After moving on every couple of days, we decided to enjoy 5 nights in one spot. Takayama was a lovely little town with the river running through it and shrines galore amongst the cedar trees. The town is renowned for its carpentry and its Hida beef. Both are excellent!! The beef is usually cut very thinly so it melts in your mouth. ...
