house Hida

Comfort at the foot of the Japanese Alps


Hida House is a large machiya style house located right next to Takayama city’s Old Town. Resembling a Japanese style mountain lodge, the house is a mix of east and west, and only a 10 minute walk to the station and a 5 minute walk the main sights in Takayama city.

On the first floor, there is a large living room with tatami floors and a “horigotatsu,” a traditional Japanese style table where you sit on the floor, but your feet fall freely beneath you. Past the bath and restroom is a western style kitchen looking out onto a private garden. Along with a small deck to enjoy the garden under the open sky, the kitchen allows for easy cooking and is great for couples or large groups.

On the second floor, there are three bedrooms with a mix of western style beds and futons. The master bedroom is very spacious, while the other two rooms offer privacy for the other members of your party. There is a small balcony looking out to a shrine behind the house, perfect for enjoying a cup of tea or sipping some famous Takayama sake.

Hida House is under construction until March 2017, with pictures to follow.

Our opinion

The interior of the house has very nice wooden beams and ceilings, fitting in a city famous for its woodwork. Large, comfortable, and relaxing, Hida House will be a great place to explore Takayama, Shirakawago and the surrounding areas. 


2-92 Hatchiken-machi, Takayama

Un vrai bonheur, cette maison est accueillante douce et calme. Gwenn et Eva, nous avons, en une semaine grâce à eux, un très bel aperçu du Japon. Sans eux nous aurions sûrement raté l’essentiel. Merci et bon vent.

Très heureuse surprise en découvrant Hida House, et l’heureuse surprise se prolongeait en découvrant Gwenn. Nous nous souviendront de cette très bonne journée où votre bonne humeur, enthousiasme, humour et votre conversation vivante avec une connaissance approfondie sur beaucoup de choses, nous a séduits et accompagnés tout le long de cette journée. Nous vous souhaitons le meilleur pour l’avenir.

We had a fantastic two day stay at Hida House in Takayama. Our hosts (Gwenn and Eva) were amazing (even saving us by taking us to the station during a torrential downpour, when no taxis were available). They also provided great restaurant suggestions and a guide to local sights and activities. The house is a beautiful traditional home, is a great size, has everything you need (including for cooking), and spacious rooms with comfortable beds. The location is perfect - just a few minutes walk to the markets and old town. Would highly recommend this as the place to stay in Takayama!

What a amazing house you have! We had a great stay and an absolutly memorable experience at Takayama. Thanks for the recommendation at Dining Bull, it was phenomenal. We will recommend this place to our friends back home.

Merci à Gwenn pour notre prise en charge pendant notre séjour fort agréable, terminé par un super repas au Dining Bull. Cela a été pour nous une expérience intéressante de vivre dans une maison typiquement japonaise.
