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).

Sakura Aburaya is a very nice place.

Gwenn was great. He had some great recommendations on what to do, eat, & where to go shopping (for groceries etc). I like that he put everything down on the walking map so we could see where everything he recommended was. The house was a wonderful Japanese style home with amazing details. Location was fantastic. Very close to the transit center as well as old town Takayama.

Maison traditionnelle avec une décoration agréable et très confortable. Gwen, le "Travel Angel" français qui gère le logement, nous a très bien accueilli en français (il parle aussi japonais ainsi d'autres langues) et bien conseillé quant aux attractions touristiques et lieux incontournables de la ville. En plus la maison est bien située par rapport au centre-ville et elle propose un emplacement de parking (ce qui est rare au Japon). Super.

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour à Takayama. Trop bref malheureusement, nous reviendrons ! Sakura est un pied-à-terre idéal : elle est bien agencée, fonctionnelle, mignonne et située dans un quartier calme. Nous étions heureux de rentrer chaque jour et avons préféré cette maison au-delà d’autres logements au Japon. Une vraie expérience japonaise ! Gwenn est d’une grande aide : sa connaissance de la ville, des restaurants à découvrir et des endroits à ne pas manquer été très utile. Nous avons fait un grand tour de la ville en un jour et avons parcouru la ville d'Est en Ouest avec beaucoup d’admiration. Merci encore Gwenn ! Je recommanderais chaleureusement la maison et la ville à nos amis.

Neat, clean and comfortable place to stay. Everything about the place is so homey that you don’t mind coming back early. Greatly appreciate Gwenn’s friendly and helpful service to us. Looking forward to staying there again. Wish we could stay longer.. we loved the place. Many thanks to Gwenn. One of the best if not the best we have ever stayed in Japan.
