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! Bravo pour l’accueil et les renseignements. Nous avons malheureusement pas tout pu visiter. Les divers restaurants et bars ! Maison très bien tenue et propre que nous recommandons ! A revenir plus tard, nous y passerons plus de temps. On sent que vous aimez votre ville et vous désirez communiquer votre sentiment. Merci Gwenn pour votre accueil « plus » que professionnel. À bientôt peut-être.

Hello Gwenn, nous avons passé un très bon séjour. Merci pour toutes les informations que tu nous as conseillé. La visite de la ville sous la neige ainsi que les temples étaient grandiose. Nous avons testé le dinning Bull ainsi que le restaurant Kyoya : un vrai régal. Au plaisir de revenir (qui sait nous reviendrons sûrement un Takayama). Bises
