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

Gwenn was an outstanding host - not only met us for the check-in but took the time to explain all the amenities, recommended the local highlights and restaurants, and he even helped us set up a bed on the first floor as I was having back problems on the trip, making going up and down the stairs challenging. This is the best Airbnb we have stayed thus far. The house was immaculately and tastefully done and the toiletries were very good. We would be happy to stay at this property again.

Maison japonaise aussi typique que confortable, dans un quartier calme, avec vue sur temple shintoïste. Notre travel angel Gwenn a été exceptionnel par son professionnalisme et sa disponibilité, et a tout fait pour que notre séjour soit aussi agréable que possible.

Séjour reposant à Takayama après Tokyo, Kyoto, en passant par Hiroshima et Kamikochi. Belle ballade au refuge de Dakesawa en partant de Kamikochi (1h20 de bus de Takayama.) Sur les conseils de Gwenn, Kamikochi est un beau point de départ pour les randos. Bons restaurants (Boeuf hida : Bull, Ramen : Toto et Mametengu, conseillé par Gwenn!) N'y allez pas trop tard les restaus ferment tôt. Côté café, belle adresse de Gwenn "Ichi café" avec terasse dominant la vallée, pour les bonnes patisseries testées par nos enfants, "bear café" au pied de Hida Folk Village! Maison magnifique, au calme, super séjour ! Merci!
