This amazing new villa by K's House, located a few door away is such a lovely stay. After travelling in Japan and staying in tiny hotel rooms for a while, it was such a nice welcome to stay in the restored house that is HUGE! 2 storeys, with a TV room, dining room, kitchen and pantry, and bedrooms upstairs, the space is really lovely. Convenient location, short walk from JR station, and also short walk to the main street in Takayama. The villa also contained some really nice additions, such as the amenities package for ladies, a really nice smelling Japanese wooden bath, and dryer and washer which is great, if you are are travelling light and need to do some laundry! Comfy futon bed on tatami. Even though this house is by the street, it is nicely insulated and sound proof. I would highly recommend this villa to visitors who are visiting Takayama. At night, the house is beautifully lit up and shines through the paper screen windows. Each time when we opened the door, tourists will sneak a peak into the house! YES, this is a good stay besides a typical ryokan. Tomoe and staff at K's House are really friendly, speak good English and gave good recommendation for restaurants and places to check out. Enjoyed the stay so much that I had it extended one more night! It was a very good surprising find for me, especially during the long holiday weekend, where almost every accomodation was booked out. I was really glad to have found this and stayed in K's villa. Made great memories of my trip to Japan!
