Restored farmhouse and secluded getaway with easy access to Takayama

An unassuming charm, service that encompasses warmth and intimacy, and rustic elegance drawn from the facility's "gassho-zukuri" thatched roof construction are just a few of the characteristics that define Wanosato. This exclusive nine-villa restored farmhouse retreat in Gifu's Hida-Takayama has thick thatched roofs, massive timbers replete with wattle and daub walls, an "irori" fireplace, rocky hot spring baths, and tree-shaded decks. The idyllic Wanosato provides a traditional ryokan experience in the Hida/Takayama region, without the crowds.
The area is known for its wild mountain vegetables and its Hida-brand wagyu beef, both of which feature prominently in the substantial dinners served by the resident chef. The farm-style menu focuses on regional, seasonal and foraged ingredients, in honor of Takayama's local bounty. Outdoor activities include everything from sailing and bass fishing to fiddlehead fern and morel gathering. Nearby, the town of Takayama has a lively morning market, a sake brewery, and chances to connect with old Japan at every corner.
