house Taisho Aburaya

Taisho Aburaya Romantic Era Home



THIS HOME IS CURRENTLY BEING REFURNISHED AND WILL BE READY IN DECEMBER 2017.  More pictures to come. Taking reservations now.

Taisho Aburaya originally belonged to a well-known woman named Nakamura Hisako, more commonly known as the Hellen Keller of Japan, an author, craftswoman, and artist.

The home itself is decorated in Taisho Roman style, which was created in the 1912 - 1926, only lasting 14 years. It is a harmonious take on Western and Japanese styles that use floral prints, loud colors and western-style furniture. Recently renovated, this house has a new restroom, kitchen and bathroom, including a nice bath.

The ground floor has a living room, kitchen, dining room, bathroom, toilet, and a beautiful Japanese style garden. The upper floor is equipped with two bright rooms, one with two double beds and the other three futons, so that a group of 6 can comfortably rest their heads in this home.

This property is located right in between the station and the old town, both accessible within ten minutes on foot. Takayama, being a small village, is calm and relaxing but brimming with things to do! You can enjoy a beautiful walk down old town and visit many craft shops, local breweries and even see wooden crafts being created. In the morning, you can stroll through the morning market and enjoy tasting many fresh vegetables with a placid view of the river. At night, you can go through Dekonaru Yokocho, which is an excellent bar / restaurant road, filled with food booths and even games for small children, fun for the whole family!

Rent your own traditional home, and experience a truly relaxing time in Takayama. We look forward to having you.

Our opinion

For a family looking for a calm and relaxing space, Taisho Aburaya is the perfect house. Not only is this home affordable, but is centrally placed and luxuriously decorated so that guests may have a Japanese experience with some western comfort.

Thanks for the help during our stay Gwenn! Your walking tour of Takayama was a big success and the food recommendations were excellent. Dining bull was first class beef and Jiku Udon really excellent. The house has worked well for us, we've managed to get some washing done! We enjoyed Takayama, it's a very interesting town and a real contrast to Kyoto. A place to return to.

Loved meeting you Gwenn. You truly are the very best epitome of an angel! Took an early morning walk and captured priceless photos of yatai and people moving in early light to set up the days exhibitions. Then continued with walk through the temples areas you suggested. A memorable start to a second great day in Takayama. Last night's parade was a hoot! All the street foods, and people in the crowds from all around the world. Will never forget this experience. Thank you for your guidance to it all.

Only a very brief 2 days here in Takayama on part of our Rugby world cup 2019 Japan trip. A truly delightful place and we could definitly have stayed longer. Gwenn was a fantastic host and his day tour was perfect, we would recommend that to anyone staying here. Many thanks!

Une mention très bien avec félicitations à l'unanimité pour Gwenn. La maison était d'une propreté jamais égalée. Tout était pensé pour le confort des occupants et en prime Gwenn est extrêmement professionnel et d'une grande bienveillance. Mille fois merci à Gwenn et nous lui souhaitons que des belles choses pour ses projets futurs.
