The manager was exceptionally helpful and friendly. He loved to communicate and show an interest in his guests. The Japanese bath was a treat.

This hostel is in an amazing location....it isn’t far to walk uphill from the station to the temple complex but there is a bus from bus stop 1 in the bus station which does a circular ride around the town and stops nearby. There is a lot to see in takeyama and the museum in the centre is a gem....also do crafts across from the museum ....origami, braiding etc ....lovely old houses still very much part of the towns life and lovely cafes and eateries. Very relaxed place...a must to stay there....monks provide bedding...v traditional tatami mats.....was a little cold when we were there....we were provided with a heater which made it cosy....big bathhouse in the grounds....

we stayed only a night here, its a lovely hostel located just behind Tensho-Ji temple in Takayama, rooms were all Japanese concept which was nice, authentically a Japanese feeling if you stay here! Although the rooms get quite hot as there are only table fans provided.
