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 keeps the house well and clean. He also offers good information to guests. The heaters are sufficient inside in every room, especially the warm table is very pratical in the cold winter. Our two little daughters enjoyed their time very much in the big house.

This is certainly one of the most beautiful houses in Japan. Althrough our stay in Takayama was relatively short we enjoyed the atmosphere of this beautiful old town. Gwenn, thank you for all your good recommendations, the beef at Dinning Bull was delicious.
Thank you very much for the hospitality.

The location of the house is very convenient, 10 minutes walk from JR and Bus station; 5 minutes away from old town; 10 minutes walk from the big supermarket; 3 bedrooms, 1 toilet, 1 bath, 1 shower, Very suitable ~ The only pity is that Mametengu ramenwas not opened on New Year's Day, so we will come again next time.

This was our favourite airbnb in Japan! On arrival Gwenn sat down with us and provided tips on restaurants and places to go which was very helpful for our time in Takayama. The house was fantastic, couldn't fault the house at all. Nice and spacious, plenty of heating and the shower was fantastic. We would have loved to stay longer!
Thanks Gwenn for sharing your local tips - much appreciated. The house was the best we experienced in Japan!
