Almost everybody come to Takayama just for the old town lane, and you will expect the crowds especially at morning and afternoon time. Almost a long queue in the food area and the old houses there are well preserved and you can experience the Japan golden time with the ninjas. Staying one or two nights at Takayama is a best option especially to enjoy the calmness and quietness after dark as this is a small city and no rush. Hotels are located at Takayama Station and the old town square is just 5 minutes walk.

The home of a sake brewer built in 1908, this large house is two storeys of stunning beams and pillars with an enclosed garden. It is exquisitely designed to frame views between rooms and into the garden, and is very much a work of art in its own right. Moving through the house brings constant discoveries of sensitive design. If you have any interest in this kind of architecture, this is a ‘must see.'

We visited this house on a wet day. The staff allowed us to hang up our coats to dry while we walked around. The house belonged to a merchant and housed business and family. There is an upstairs and downstairs and it is really interesting to see how people lived in the past.

This is a huge tourist trap. It's pretty but crazy busy and most merchants are selling kichy tourist junk. A quick walk through will do,

I was hesitating to go to the house especially after visiting many places already. A Japanese journalist who just came out of the house suggested me to visit. So I did, and I am glad that I did. The open space at the entrance has spoken the specialty of the house. The calligraphy of each room seems matches quite with each space.

Similar to most Japanese houses, taking off shoes is required and getting upstairs can be very difficult, especially for people with bad knees.

Funny thing was, there isn't and "OPEN" sign at the door to let you know that the house is open for visits. From the outside it looked like nobody is home.

It took more than just curiousity to knock on the door and try to open it to realise - YES it is open for visit. Once inside (after you paid the entry fees) you will be transported into a different world.

This house owned by a merchant is large for its day. It has been well maintained with various artefacts on display. I note other comments on visits as it being sparse, however whilst this is true it is not a 'crammed museum'. Japanese life back when this was built was not one of accumulation of household items. Certainly some of the space in this dwelling would have had merchandise as well. However, the exhibits on display I found interesting and well worth the visit.

If you are strolling around Sanmachi Suji - do stop here for a short visit . But don't have high expectations : It is nice and interesting , giving an idea about ancient Japanese living and culture .

We visited this heritage house while taking a slow walk through Takayama old town and the surrounding area. They charge a small entrance fee (young kids were free AFAIR).

The house has been decently maintained with some old furniture, dresses, weapons, kitchen tools, parade stuff etc arranged sparsely throughout the many rooms. There's not much to see or take in (nothing grand or intricate), but it feels nice to be in a place that probably hasn't changed much in hundreds of years. They also keep a diary where many visitors have noted down their impressions of the house - makes for an interesting read :-).
