akariya originally started as youémecafe at Rakan cho, Takasaki on July 7th in 2010. It used to stay open until 3 a.m. and offered a space to enjoy meals and drinks late at night, like a little “lighthouse” on the corner in the city of Takasaki.Later on, we moved to the current location because of the city planning. And reopened the space as akariya on April 4th in 2015. We would love to welcome travelers to our space to enjoy friendly encounter with the locals and to develop links of communication. The new place is created with this idea, which includes a cafe on the first floor and a guesthouse on the second floor. Since the beginning, we always have wanted to run this space with a relaxing atmosphere for everybody. It is our joy that you use here as your hub to enjoy the city. Both for neighbors and visitors from out of town, this is the spot to take a break, to stay a night or anyway you wish.
