house Sakura Aburaya

Sakura Aburaya, a traditional house full of charm.


Sakura Aburaya is a traditional house located in the Tenmanmachi district. This house’s biggest asset is its traditional Japanese interior, constructed around the theme of the “sakura”, the famous Japanese cherry trees. Certain parts of the woodwork are actually made of cherry wood and the beam in the master bedroom is the trunk of a cherry tree. The colors and decoration choices have been constituted based on this theme and they allow guests to enjoy the cherry blossom, one of the emblems of Japan, throughout the year.

The ground floor includes a traditional living room (tatami), a fitted kitchen/dining room, a bathroom (featuring a spacious shower) and a magnificent Japanese garden. The upstairs has two bright bedrooms decorated in the purest Japanese style, the first containing two beds and the second 3 futons. The biggest plus of the upstairs is its balcony which provides a Zen atmosphere. A group of 5 people can comfortably stay in this house.

Sakura Aburaya is located in a quiet area away from tourist zones while remaining close to key sites and very near to the station. The ideal location to make the most of your stay in Takayama. The house is very close to the old town, allowing you to explore Takayama on foot. In the evening, you can enjoy the nightlife (restaurants, bars...) in the Asahimachi and Dekonaru Yokocho districts, which are just 10 minutes walk from Sakura Aburaya.

Our opinion

Sakura Aburaya is full of charm, easily accessible and provides all the advantages of a modern house but with the traditional spirit which characterizes Japan. Simply the perfect compromise between modernity and tradition. Matching the atmosphere which reigns in Takayama, the house is peaceful and relaxing, a far cry from the commotion of the big cities. This house is a perfect place to stay as a family or with friends.


The house is located behind Takayama Hospital, close to the station and to the old town. There are plenty of small supermarkets in the surrounding area, in addition to a shopping center (UNIQLO).

Completely bowled over by Gwenn’s hospitality, personally receiving us upon arrival and providing us with an abundance of info for a short stay in town! Place was just like in the photos with a great layout and living room was spacious enough for 4 open luggages. To ensure we were comfy right in the middle of winter, each living space was fully equipped with a heater and/or air conditioner with more options. Gwenn’s attention to detail was very much appreciated! Enjoyed our stay thoroughly.

We stayed in Takayama for two nights. The combination of antique style and modern appliances is very good.  Very comfortable house. The surroundings are quiet and not far from the station. We like to cook by ourselves. There is a big supermarket nearby Everything is complete.  I like the pot of the host and it is really easy to use :) . This experience was really good. I went to Mingbai to buy one. Put the bag home to use, the kitchen hardware is very good, the tableware is also very good, the landlord's software service is also great, staying here is not willing to leave, the owner's careful decoration is very tasteful, gave us a good accommodation experience, thank the host The enthusiastic help information gave a lot of suggestions for eating and drinking nearby. Will stay here next time!
