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.

Voilà deux merveilleuses journées passées dans la région de Takayama. Nous avons vraiment apprécié la visite de la vieille ville, la promenade Higashiyama, Shirakawa-go et Hida Furukawa... et évidemment les bons conseils de Gwenn! La maison est agréable et confortable. Petit coup de coeur pour Dinning Bull, nous nous sommes régalé!

A comfortable Japanese house with mod cons - where we could enjoy cooking and catch up with washing after a few weeks travelling And Gwenn is fantastic - it was my second stay and like last year he handed out maps, made suggestions about what to see and do and offered help. He rang us on the bus as it was pouring rain to offer to collect us and the next day collected my friend’s case to send it to Narita

This is a wonderful house with a nice private garden, and its location is good as well. Just a few minutes walk to shopping area with big supermarket, uniqlo and drug store. The host is helpful with suggestions what too see and what to eat. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay in this house. :)
