Yamato Ryokan, Takachiho The name of this place confuses as it is also called Yamatoya. This Ryokan is sited in the main street in Takachiho and there is a conveniently placed car park just 20 metres up the hill. Takachiho is famous for its Gorge and this is well worth a visit although it is commercialised somewhat. The town centre...

Spent two nights there. The food was good but basic. The reception hall and corridors were gloomy with stuffy air.

We don't recommend that place.
