Last Minute Trip to Japan- Ryokan Help

Jump to last reply

My boyfriend and I are taking a last minute trip to Japan next week.
Our itinerary is:
Kyoto- 12/20-12/24- Westin Miyako- any restaurant recommendations for beef and sushi or sake breweries?
Takayama- 12/24-26- recommendations for hida beef?
From Takayama I wanted to travel to Tokyo and then to Hakone to stay in a ryokan for one night on December 30th. Thus far all the ryokan I have emailed are booked. We would like to stay somewhere like Hakone Ginyu- but it is totally booked during our stay in Japan.
We can go straight from Takayama to Hakone and stay at Yama no Chaya- thoughts on this ryokan?
We are open to location- anywhere outside of Tokyo or near Takayama or Kyoto- would prefer something in the mountains with a view, private bath and great meal. Our budget is not Gora Kaden- but we can spend up to $1,000 for the night.
I need to make a reservation pretty quickly as many places are booked, so any recommendations are much appreciated.
Thank you!!!
