Takayama Kanko Hotel is an onsen hotel located at Hachimanmachi, Takayama. It is situated on a hill and offers an overlooking view of Mount Norikura, a famous Japanese mountain and an active volcano that lies in prefectures Gifu and Nagano. It is a short distance away from the Old Town of Takayama and a short drive away from the Hida Takayama Onsen Hot Spring, where guests can visit during their stay at the inn.
The hotel offers its guests spacious accommodation and features a variety of hot spring baths that can be enjoyed either indoors or in the open air. Other onsen facilities can be rented by families. Their rooms are based on traditional Japanese design, which cost around 10,000 to 30,000 JPY per night, including air-conditioning and heating options. Guests are welcome at Futari-Shizuka Hakuun even during the pandemic, provided that they follow precautionary measures implemented by the inn. Takayama Kanko Hotel provides a free shuttle at the Nohi Bus Terminal.
The hotel is located on the highlands of Takayama, 2km away from city center offering great views overlooking the city. Transportation isn’t an issue since there is free shuttle bus service. We stayed 1 night in the annex building which rooms are larger than the main building. The room is new and clean with all the equipments that you need. There are public and private onsens both indoor and outdoor. Private onsens can be reserved for free at check-in. Dinner is a Kaiseiki course that offers variety of traditional dishes with Hida beef as main dish. Breakfast includes both small portion of Hida beef set and also international buffet. Staffs are helpful, especially the tall girl with glasses. She is very friendly and speaks foreign languages very well both English and Chinese. Overall, everything was perfect. One night is not enough!!!
Amazing hotel. Wish i stayed more than one night.
Ultimate relaxation. From check in to check out everything was so relaxing and customer friendly.
My favorite things of this hotel.
1. Private and public outdoor Onsens with great views.
2. Free massage chairs over looking the city and mountains.
3. Location - it over looks the city and offers an amazing view
4. Little free things. From games to snacks to books. The little things make this place feel like home.
I wish I stayed more than one night. Such a nice break of the big city (Kyoto/Tokyo) noise.
A great stay in a more traditional Japanese hotel!
We stayed here for 3 nights in June and greatly enjoyed our stay. The staff is very friendly and helpful and with patience it is easy to work through any language difficulties. The kaiseki dinners were amazing and different each night. The location is on a hill above the town but with the shuttle bus it is no issue and not that bad of a walk if you don't want to time the shuttle. The place is ready for some updating but we enjoyed out time there and I would still recommend it.
Stop searching... this is the right place!
Cannot emphasise how fantastic our stay was.
Staff are just amazing, they speak perfect English and they will not hesitate to do anything they can to make sure you are happy with your stay.
Rooms are just beautiful; clean, spacious and large. Breakfast was excellent, the host/ waitress were very welcoming and attentive.
The private spa is a MUST just make sure you book when you check in.
Seriously, this is the best place we stayed in our Japan trip.
I am surprised by many of the negative reviews of this property. So I am glad that I actually read them after my stay there otherwise I would miss out on a stay at this great place. Contrary to many of the reviews, I thought the staff there were all really great and go beyond their ways to try to help. Yes, their English ability was not great, but they really try their best. The property has private hot springs that you can reserved which is awesome for those that are uncomfortable with using a public one and still would like experience one. The room is very Japanese traditional room with tatami. If I ever go back to Takayama again, I would choose to stay here again in a heartbeat.
