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).

Charmante petite maison qui nous a donné le sentiment d’être plongé dans la vraie vie au Japon. Merci Gwenn pour tes multiples bons conseils. Autant en matière de visites que de restaurant. Nous n’oublierons pas cette étape de notre périple japonais.

The house was well located for transport options, supermarket and 7eleven, and it was a quiet neighbourhood. The interiors were lovely, fresh and authentic Japanese style. It was a very restful place from which to explore the prefecture.

The house is fantastic! Newly renovated. Sparkling clean. Everything is much better from the pictures. Gwenn is the great host also. His local tips is practical and clear. We went to one of the restaurant he suggested, Bull's kitchen, It's the best meal we had in Japan. ( While the price is not too pricy.) i will definitely come back again.
Thanks you Gwenn! We love your hospitality so much. Its made me feel better than our own home. The bull's kitchen restaurant is great also. Good price and superb quality. The house is fantastic! I will definitely stay here again if i come to Takayama.

Thank you Gwenn for your warm welcome in this peaceful and historical place. Excellent facilities in a beautiful home and garden made our stay memorable. We were enchanted by the wonderful setting of Hida village, and the temples and shrines walk was a glimpse of what is in store for us on the Kumano Kodo trail coming up soon. All the best!
