Hidatei Hanaougi

What kind of onsen ryokan is Hidatei Hanaougi?

Hidatei Hanaougi
If you are looking for luxury authentic ryokans with private outdoor hot springs in Takayama, you should stay here.  The stately interior creates a mature impression.  We felt the luxury and authenticity at once.   Perhaps if this is your first time staying at ryokans, I would recommend it.  Facilities tend to be the latest.  You wouldn’t feel any stress during your stay.   On the other hand, if you are a couple or solo traveler, I would rather recommend staying at the sister inn, Hanaougi Bettei Iiyama.  It would be more tranquil, serene, and private.  Hidatei Hanaougi would be great for family or groups.  The ambiance is family-oriented, lively, and cozy.  Also, this is child-friendly.  Staff can provide yukatas, futons, and meals for small children at an additional charge if you request.

Is the location easy to access?

The location is away from Takayama Station but free shuttle service is available between 14:00 and 17:30.

Rooms I would recommend?

If you are going to stay here, I would recommend rooms with outdoor private hot springs.  The spring quality is very thick, moist, and creamy.  The water temperature tends to be lukewarm.  The rooms are excellent Japanese minimalist.  It’s well-maintained, clean, and user-friendly.  Floor heating was installed in our room.  There is no nice view of the property as it’s located in a residential area.

Where is the best accommodation for anniversaries in Takayama?

If you are looking for a good place for a special occasion, the property would be one of the best. The staff may be able to arrange a cake to celebrate an anniversary at an additional charge if you request in advance.

How about toiletries & in-room amenities?

All of the amenities are taken care of including enough toiletries, yukatas, bathrobes, and a green tea set, etc.  Room service is not available.  There is a vending machine for drinks in-house.  There is a convenience store within 5min walking.  *Please note that food and drink from outside are prohibited except baby food.  Then Free Wifi reception was good in the property.  Also, humidifiers, DVD players, and bicycles are available for borrowing if you request.

How about In-house Facilities?

There are some wonderful communal hot springs in-house.  They are open from 5:00-9:30, 15:00-24:00.  Also, there is a private family hot spring.  It costs 3,240JPY for 50min.  It’s open from 15:00-23:00.  On top of that, you can use communal hot springs in the sister inn, Hanaougi Bettei Iiyama nearby.   Don’t forget to try them.  *Please note that if you have tattoos and want to use the communal ones, use a reserved private family one, or book a room with an outdoor private hot spring.  Then Hidatei Hanaougi is not a perfect universal design but there are very few steps.  Wheelchairs are available for borrowing.  There are lifts in the building.  If you bring people with weak feet, you may want to inform the staff in advance as they can arrange a room near the lift.

How about meals?

The kaiseki food experience for dinner and breakfast was just divine.  All local ingredients were high-end, such as Hida beef, fish, and vegetables, etc.  The portion tends to be big, but you won’t resist even you are full.  Don’t forget to bring your empty stomach.  All meals are served in a private room or your room.  Breakfast starts from 7:00-8:30.  Dinner starts from 18:00-19:00.  If you have dinner on the property, you need to check in by 18:00.  *Please note that inform the staff when you book a room with meals if you have any food allergies.  They probably wouldn’t be able to prepare alternative food if you request on that day.   Then, as far as I know, there wouldn’t be nice restaurants around the property, but there are some restaurants around Takayama Station.  You may need to take a taxi.  It takes 10min by car.  It costs around JPY1,500.

My impressions

All staff was professional.  If you want to experience signature Japanese hospitality, I would recommend it.  Overall, the price range would be reasonable.  We would definitely return again.  At last, the property is very popular all year round.  If you want to stay in a tranquil atmosphere, you might want to avoid during Lunar New Year, late April to early May, weekends in October and November, and the end of the year and New Year holiday.  Have a nice trip!  Welcome to receive any questions about Hidatei Hanaougi from the below space.  Check Availability and Pricing for the property on Booking.com or Agoda
