    A lovely old house in the town, which I enjoyed visiting, although the rooms were rather sparse (perhaps historically accurate), so I didn't need to spend long there to get a sense of the ambience.  more »

    The neighborhood has a lot of charm, and some houses you can visit. For those who love the sleek Japanese atmospheres, you don't get tired not...

    It's authentic, we see how a House before was done to the Japan! After he shouldn't expect a lot of other things to see, after all we're going to the House not for something else...

    Beautiful! A must for architecture fans and to understand how Japanese houses work, lively gardens and nice art art work on the walls.

    Worth visiting. Great surprise. Good information. A family house to understand Japanese interior architecture.

    You must really be into abstract Japanese writing and not expect large numbers of paintings to visit this house. The Bach playing in the background may give it the artsy touch - but the place lacks atmosphere. Even the smells ate wrong, there's something unpleasant lingering in the air. Much rather go next door to the Kusakabe Mingeikan folk museum for the same feeling (and a tea).

    Visit a traditional Japanese house.

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.
