Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights during our trip through Japan. The ryokan is accessible by a bus journey that takes around 40 minutes from takayama station, during which you will realise you are heading deep into glorious scenery for a stay in the heart of the Japanese alps.

This is somewhere to spend a few nights to relax and enjoy an authentic ryokan stay along with some really excellent Japanese traditional hospitality - but no more than that. There isn’t a lot or enough to do here for more than a few nights - you can walk/cycle but you need to know what you’re doing, and you can also take the bus to the nearby Shinhotaka ropeway, but aside from that you will find yourself relaxing and enjoying the onsen.

Food is included in your stay - and if you don’t want it you’ll have difficulty finding anything else nearby as there are no restaurants in the village or immediately nearby. We found the food to be excellent, and don’t worry if you don’t find anything to your liking - staff will do their best to accommodate your needs.

The best part of Kazeya is their on site onsen - here they have a public, shared onsen, but they also have two private facilities that you can use- we never had a problem finding the private onsen free, and it’s a really nice way to relax. You can enjoy them all night as well should you wish as they close them for cleaning from 9am-3pm (when you will be out sightseeing anyway).

You will pay a little more to stay here - but it’s worth it to experience a traditional Japanese stay. The rooms are large and the futon beds are very comfortable. We had no issue with insects here- just keep the screen window shut and there won’t be a problem.

We would recommend anyone who gets a chance to stay here -the food was excellent and you can pay more to have the hida beef - this wasn’t spectacular but it was certainly tasty. All in all a great experience for a couple of nights.

We love everything about this ryokan. The room, the food , and the outdoor onsen was the highlight of our trip.
The room was spacious , they have living room ( tatami ) , bedroom, and 2 bathroom.

It took 1.5 hours by public bus to get to this Ryokan. But it was fine.

We stayed here for a night.Though it was short, we enjoyed it thoroughly. Spacious room..All the necessities were very neatly furnished.
Only problem is with its access from Hirayu onsen bus terminal.It takes 20-25mins bus travel,but the problem is with the frequency of bus.We have one bus per hour.Hotel must consider giving free shuttle or arrange shuttle at a cost.

When we alighted from the bus, we were welcomed by the tranquility of the laid back town. The hotel was about 5 minute walk from the bus stop. It was a beautiful traditional hotel had many insta-worthy spots.
Staff were helpful and polite. Food was simple and satisfactory. Room was spacious and pleasant. All were good except for the cleanliness of the place. It was not acceptable by the Japanese standard. The mattress was stained, bugs were crawling in the room and toilet, the carpet at the public area did not look clean...
I like this hotel very much. If the management could improve the cleanliness of the place, it will be an ideal place for people who are visiting the Shinhotaka Ropeway to stopover for a night or two.

Stayed here as a couple for two nights during our two-week trip to Japan, and this was the only disappointing stay really. First thing first - don't go if you don't like bugs in your room (or everywhere in the building). There was even a 'bug catching and drowning' device in the room (pictured) for convenience. Dinner on offer we felt was overpriced and not the best quality. On the other hand, the service from staff cannot be faulted. I hope they clean up their act.

The place is nice and situated at a visible location. Dinner is good too.1000 yen more to change chicken to beef. Beef tasted good. Chicken not so tender.
Room is spacious and so able to pack luggage comfortably.
But too many bugs. Bugs like ticks!
Onsen next to room is a plus. Ignore the bugs then it will be good. Cold place.

Our 3 night stay in Kazeya was such an enjoyable experience, the food, the onsens and surrounding countryside combined to make for an ultimate relaxation escape. Our room on the upstairs level was very spacious and had all the amenities we needed. The staff were attentive and available when needed , otherwise it was whisper quiet with a zen-like ambience. There was a great selection of traditional Japanese food and beverages for breakfast and dinner, as well as some western options, there’s also a vending machine available for snacks, soft drinks and beer. The in-house private onsens were open to guests 3pm - 6am daily, and were always available when we needed them and perfect temperature.
The Shinhotaka Ropeway up to the stunning, snow-capped peak of Mt Hotaka was a highlight as was visiting some of the other open air hot-spring onsens in the area. Just be warned that some mixed-gender onsens are for naked bathing only (not for shy types lol)
Also, make sure to have cash available at the end of your stay to pay for your return bus fare. There are no ATMs within walking distance of Kazeya, nor are there convenience stores or other restaurants/food options.
The nearest shops are in Tochio about 6 mins by car or bus, but it’s a good walk and okay by bike but uphill for the return trip.
The bus stop is 50m down the street and they leave hourly so make sure to factor this timetable in when planning to visit Shinhotaka Ropeway.
Kazeya and Okuhida Onsen Village was the highlight of our 3 week Kansai adventure. We can’t wait to visit again in the future. Thank you to all the staff at Kazeya. Arigatou Makoto-san.

We really enjoy our stay at Kazeya. All staffs were very friendly and helpful. The place was amazing and we want to stay there again if we have a chance to go back to Takayama. The view from our room was fantastic as well as the view outside the hotel. Look from outside like a small house but it's quite big inside with facilities that really make your stay comfortable. We love the onsen - both private and public ones. The outdoor onsen was also nice for the cold winter day. The food was also superb - we love our dinner and breakfast. Tried to Hida beef for dinner and really fantastic. We had wine during dinner and it was quite cheap. The room is quite big for Japanese standard, there is a separate living room, bedroom, dressing and bathroom. Lot of space and heaters in the room. They also provide a yukata and amenities for all guests.

This ryokan located at 2 min walk from shin hotaka onsenguchi bus stop, on the way to shin-hotaka ropeway. We arrived this ryokan approximately 3pm, it maybe due to low season, we did not really seen much house guest along the road.
Room - clean, full amenities , spacious and comfortable stay in the traditional style of Japanese room.
Food - our booking included full board meal , dinner and breakfast. The dinner came in a complete set meal, from entree, main dish and a hotpot. We got chicken as main course this day depending on what the chef will get. Everything is fresh and tasty. You can request for vegetarian meal if you are.
Facilities - Indoor and outdoor private / public onsen provided. We chose the outdoor one but we could not withstand the temperature of the natural hot spring water, then move to the indoor one. It was really relax to soak in the naturally made hot spring that soothed our tiredness. Small library or study area was provided as well if you want a good time with friends or by yourself.
Ambience - the hotel outlook and internal design is really what you can feel the zen of it. It cannot be rated as 5 stars ryokan but you get to feel the homey feeling when you stay in.

I checked ,fastest way is using Shinkansen&JR to get to Takayama, and taking bus after that. Tokyo-(Shinkansen)-Nagoya-(Japan Railway)-Takayama-(bus)-Kazeya(not sure which station to get off) ->totally 5-6h by the way, hotel web said latest checkin gonna be 20:00(they will postpone up to guest but), better to check with Kazeya in advance!

You can get to ropeway by 20-30min walk but if you inform your plan to ryokan, they will take you to there by their car. And bus also go up the mountain but is only to the middle, if you want to go observation deck, ropeway is better. And regarding to getting to the ryokan, sorry i went there by my car but ryokan web site saids its 1hour from JR Takayama station. Ryokan web also said up to your plan/schedule, they can pick you up to station you arrive, i recommend you to ask ryokan.
