Stay in the historical district of HidaFurukawa (next town to Takayama) . This house will definitely catch your eyes because the style is very different from Machiya townhouses. You can find the incredible timber work of the “Hida no Takumi (Master of carpentry in Hida) ” .
You can see normal Japanese life harmonized with the traditional landscape and Satoyama.
In the historical town of HidaFurukawa, where you can find narrow streets aligned by Machiya townhouses with significant white walls and lattice, this sukiya-style house stands out from the others to add unique flavor to in the Jokamachi district (castle town).
Dating back to Nara Period (700AD), the local woodworkers and carpenters developed their outstanding technique in the environment with abundant forest resources, and they served their craftsmanship in the ancient capitals. People called them “Hida no Takumi (Hida’s Master Builders)” with respect.
Suehiro house is special one, "Suekiya style", influenced from Kyoto at old town of HidaFurukawa. Blending with the old townscape of Hidafurukawa where traditional townhouses stand, this sukiyazukuri house is outstandingly showing a presence. The wooden house built about 40 years ago might not be an historical folk house. However, the structure built by sheer persistence of "Hida no Takumi" is worth seeing.
