Great spot! ”

Takuro is a great host and has a lovely guesthouse. Super convenient to the touristy areas of the town, walkable from the station, clean, quiet, and affordable. We stayed as a group of three in the 2F family room. I definitely recommend the sento across the street, Utopia, which allows tattoos (for those of you who are as covered as we are) for ¥400 per trip. Super great place to unwind after hoofing it all day!

Highly recommended if you're looking for a comfortable & great value place in Takayama!

Clean budget option”

Cup of tea was a nice guesthouse with all the necessary amenities. The owner welcomed us upon arrival and showed us around (helped with luggage as well), using English. Other guests were from a variety of places; not the most social guesthouse but making conversation isn't impossible. The guesthouse is across the street from a sento, which costs 400 yen after a small discount. It was a nice chance to experience an "authentic," local public bath. The owner provides shampoo/soap/towels for you to take, so you don't need to rent at the sento. Only con was that the rooms are quite narrow, so if you have a suitcase/lots of luggage it may be inconvenient to maneuver or open them. The bunks themselves are quite spacious, although the top bunk is quite high so it may be inconvenient to hoist large luggage or other items up. The guesthouse is located perhaps a 7-minute walk to the heart of the tourist area, and a 15-minute walk from the bus/train stations. Not bad but not in the center of things.

Wish i can go there !”

Landed on Osaka on 7th July 2018. Supposed to go straight to Takayama to stay 2 nights (7th July 2018- 9th July 2018) at Cup of Tea. But sadly due to heavy rains and floods all JR trains and buses ceased operations to Takayama. Since i already paid, it's quite sad that i couldn't get any refund from Cup of Tea as there's no way you can predict that it's gonna be heavy rains and floods on that day. But without a doubt surely i will have a blast if i stay there. Appreciate it if you can refund my money. Thank you for your consideration guys.

Located about 5-10mins away from Takayama station, cup of tea was an amazing accommodation that we stayed in. The hostel owners were always available at the lounge to interact and share recommended location around the city to guests. The owners are well conversant in English and Japanese, so fret not. Just opposite the street, you can find a sento and a ramen shop can be found 2-3mins away. We'll definitely come back here again for our stay. 100/10 stars!

Really new, well designed, minimalist wooden & white styled dorm.”

When I first arrived, I was honestly very impressed as it looked a lot better and newer than in the photos. Don't worry about the beds being bunk beds or capsule style, as you get a really wide & tall space. More than just your mattress, you have a space wide enough to put your bag and items beside it even. And space under the beds for luggage. The room itself is a bit narrow, but you have a large bed area and high ceiling w natural light entering in the morning. More impressively was the owner who's a fairly young guy who's fluent in English. I asked for recommendations and he took out a map & drew out locations for me to visit and the route/sequence which would be good to take. Walkable to distance to all the places in Takayama imo. No towels, but shower & shampoo are provided and rental of bicycles for 800yen a full day. Will definitely come back my next visit.
