Cozy house in the historical center of Takayama

Recently renovated, the ground floor includes a large living / dining room that is ideal for groups and families. The dining space has a large table and bar style kitchen and bathroom. Also on the first floor there is a bathroom, toilet, a small traditional tatami room, and there is also a small terrace for enjoying some fresh air. Upstairs has a balcony and two traditional bedrooms with lots of natural light, one with a double bed and the other with futons. A group of 5 people can stay comfortably at Kanamori House.

Definitely worth visiting again as one of Japan's favorite accommodations!
Excellent accommodation. The parking is super close.  tThe house is very warm during winter, and the water heater is very good. There is also a washing machine and a perfect kitchen with all tools to cook. This is definitely a first choice  accomodation to stay in Takayama and only 5 minutes walk to the Old Streets. I love this house so much! The host was very welcoming and spoke English fluently. The house is new and freshly renovated, Perfect.

Gwenn is such a great host. He responds promptly to all our enquiries. He even met up with us during check in to do a house tour and gave good recommendations about Takayama. We had an amazingggg time in Takayama thanks to your recommendation. And the Halal Ramen was awesomely delicious. However we especially love Gwenn's place. It was the best accomodation throughout our whole entire trip. Everything we needed was there. It was hard to find anything that we could feedback on because everything was perfect. We would love to come back again and spend more days there. Super highly recommended to stay here if you are coming to Takayama or Shirakawa-go.

The host is very helpful and follows up on our needs with a quick response. The house is perfect and fully equipped, so you don't need to worry about the facilities. The location is great which is only a few mins by walk to reach the nearby sightseeing area (Takayama Jinya and the old street). A supermarket nearby where you can buy all you need and a Hida beef shop is just only 3 mins by a walk where you can buy very good quality Hida beef. I definitely will come back again.
