Japanese inn, Hida Takayama, Wanosato.
With only 8 rooms, Wanosato is a luxurious inn located in an almost untouched wilderness of 15,000 tsubo (about 1,000 square meters) with a borrowed view of the magnificent Hida foothills.
Here we introduce the charms of Wanosato and more.
Location of Wanosato
Wanosato is nestled in the mountains of Hida.
There are only eight rooms on a 15,000 tsubo site. The property is so vast that the Miya River, a first-class river, flows through the grounds, and all the rooms are located along this river.
The main building, where the main lobby is located, is a relocated 160-year-old house of a wealthy farmer, and when you step inside, you will see a large sunken hearth. The hearth is not just an interior decoration, but can actually be used to boil water and grill fish.
Combined with the high ceilings and the old-fashioned wooden structure, you will feel as if you have stepped into an old Japanese tale.
Attractions of Wanosato
The charm of Wanosato is that you can enjoy an elegant old private home surrounded by nature.

Tenryo is the only room at the inn that has both Japanese and Western-style rooms.

Garyu is located in the former Miya Village and is a relocated old private house that was built about 120 years ago.

Karian and Iiyama are both rooms that were relocated from the Gassho-zukuri style houses in Shirakawa-go.
