  • Old houses, cultural goods and capital without regard to or townhouses, and generally, no interest, I hate. Is my parents ' House and old houses built after 176 years, (is the current home even after a ten-year is not new) said in Kyoto City on one hand to count as but not eight kettles, Sambo, prepare the House was taken up as a textbook on elementary school was also like a kitchen stove is so. Take voice and also specify the range of all I notice, denying came. And was built in 0/1907, so are designated with this? Just think of the will but look like brand new buildings. City and Kyoto sumiya and the features of old traditinal has become a tourist destination, but completely not interested in. Also, cut pay 500 yen, but seen in the living room hearth of old-style, might be in our warehouse, Wells also rattles... live in the concrete apartment in this unusual but.... Once again, thanks so much say enough was. Mainstay, smoke-free building, in diameter, 40 cm beams is greater than or... House ratio wasn't is! Hey!.

  • This area of central Japan is famed for its superb carpentry traditions and the best place to see this is in the Yoshijima Heritage House. The house was built back in 1907 for a family of sake brewers and moneylenders. You can see the wealth of the family in the quality of the construction and the sheer size of the beams in the house. It would be almost impossible to find trees of sufficient size to make such a house today. After checking out the shop area in front, you remove your shoes and explore the rest of the house. Don’t miss the garden out back.
  • Very nice view on a traditional Japanese house.
  • Beautiful! A must for architecture fans and to understand how Japanese houses work, lively gardens and nice art art work on the walls.
  • Wonderful house to visit, beautiful old wooden beams and courtyards.
  • Worth visiting. Great surprise. Good information. A family house to understand Japanese interior architecture.

Where to stay in Takayama

Look along the banks of the river running north-south through Takayama for arguably the town's best accommodations. Traditional ryokan (guesthouses) with onsite onsen (traditional Japanese spas) occupy scenic positions across this central area, displaying fine carpentry skills of the locals and the distinctive architectural style they developed over the years. West of this area, you'll find a number of basic ryokan, with a decent selection of side-street hostels and standard hotels around the train station.
