Where to stay in Inuyama

Inuyama doesn't possess a huge amount of places to stay, but what it does have tends toward more upmarket options. Some showpiece hotels sit by the river, offering commanding views as it flows past town. Hotels range from Western in style to traditionally Japanese, but are always modern and well-maintained. Elsewhere in town, you'll find a set of simpler hotels close to the train station, as well as the odd budget-friendly hostel, although spaces in the latter remain very limited, so reserve your place in advance.
