Japanese Traditional Inn KAMINAKA is situated in the heart of Hida Takayama, known as Little Kyoto, which cultivated its unique culture in a region surrounded by mountain peaks rising to 3000 meters and bound in winter by deep snow. This long-established traditional inn was built in 1888. The inn’s name, Kaminaka, is derived from the name of its founder whose spirit of hospitality has continued on to the present. Due to efforts to preserve the purely Japanese architectural style which has remained unchanged since it was first built, the building has been designated as a registered tangible cultural property of Japan. The exterior of the inn features traditional Japanese lattice doors. Walking through the entrance, the scent of Japanese tea incense fills the air, and the stairs, pillars and ceiling of the interior all exude an old world charm, a reflection of its history and wooden structure dating back over 120 years. In the center of the inn is a Japanese garden, ever-changing with the seasons, awaiting your arrival. Please come and stay at our timeless inn where you can enjoy the traditional charm and atmosphere of Japan.
