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

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans la maison Hida, qui est très agréable et fonctionnelle. Nous avons adoré la ville de Takayama et partage ses traditions pendant 3 jours. Les endroits que nous avons apprécié sont:

- Les brochettes de viande à Fukataru

- pour les amateurs d'art déco Hida Takayama Museum art

- pour les enfants nous avons eu une matinée de pluie pendant laquelle nous sommes allés dans un endroit parfait avec plein de jouets à disposition pour les enfants.

- Dinning bull, un excellent repas, viande de Hida et légumes juste grillés au top.

merci à Gwen pour ces histoires et conseils avisés.

Takayama was amazing. The beautiful house very cosy and located in a perfect spot. Gwenn gave us excellent tips, we followed them exactly as he said and our route thru the city was perfect. Our recommendation for a restaurant is "Monte Feliz", a small and delicious sushi place. The best food we had in all Japan.

Très belle étape de ce voyage de trois semaines au Japon ! Hida a du charme et nous a enveloppé dans son confort douillet. Takayama est une bien jolie ville à découvrir et Gwenn est fabuleux de gentillesse et d’efficacité joyeuse : un véritable ange.
