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

Two very small things which in no way spoilt a very happy stay: - the hot water was a little unpredictable in the washbasin - as I was staying for a few days, I would have liked some wardrobe space to hang up my clothes But as I say, overall a very enjoyable stay. I have already recommended the house and your company to my family and friends, and I am looking forward to my next Japan Experience holiday!

Une maison pleine de charme, l’impression de vivre comme des Japonais pendant quelques jours... notre meilleur souvenir gustatif restera le restaurant Bull. Merci à Gwenn pour son accueil et sa disponibilité pour nous aider à réserver les restaurants.

The Hide House is just awesome and we can recommend it as the perfect base for a rural adventure in Takayama. It suited our needs perfectly and Gwenn was very helpful and offered some great tips on things to do and places to eat.

Top location, beautiful Kyoto-style house in a peaceful neighborhood in one of the most wonderful towns in Japan. Close enough to the train station so that you can walk (10-15 max. On foot). The house is truly comfortable and it’s a pleasure coming home after discovering the city on foot. In that regard, the host’s insider tips are priceless! Ask kindly and Gwenn will even book a table at the best Hida beef restaurant :-) Visiting Takayama was a wonderful experience in itself, but doing it while living in this house undoubtedly made it even better. I will definitely choose this place again next time (the sooner the better).
