  • We came to the Yoshijima Heritage House with high expectations. However we these expectations were quickly shattered as the house was not too impressive and actually not in a good shape.  more »
  • This house was just 2 doors down from our Air B&B and we were so glad we popped in! It is one of the finest examples of Japanese Design and you can see how the American Arts and Crafts Movement was in...  more »

  • 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.
  • Not much to see here and no explanations in English.

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.
