Authentic homes moved from a nearby valley and preserved intact make this attraction a very special "open air museum."

We caught cabs to the park and found it sparely crowded. This kids enjoyed feeding the ducks and using some old-time toys that would have been used in the region generations ago. It was interesting to see the houses each with a steady fire to keep the moisture out. It gets a little repetitive to see all the houses, but... More

The village is a collection of traditional Japanese country houses. Very informative displays about history of countryside living. Beautiful location and lots of fun tramping around in the snow between the houses. You can enter all the houses, but must admit a bit tiring having to take shoes off at each house, so for the last few just observed from... More

A lovely view of Takayama, Friendly and helpful staff. So gorgeous in the winter with falling snow complete with a lonely swan in the frozen lake

We ended up getting to Hida no Sato quite late in the day, so only had about 45mins until the last bus came, so it was a whirl wind tour, but it was actually quite an enjoyable visit, especially when you compare it against the visit to Shirakawa-go the next day. Whilst I liked the fact that Shirakawa-go is still... More

เหมือนชิราคาวาโกะขนาดเล็กๆ กระทัดรัด ภายในบ้านแสดงวิถีชีวิตดั้งเดิมของชาวบ้าน ส่วนใหญ่ให้เข้าชมได้ทุกหลัง ตอนกลางคืนช่วงหน้าหนาวจะมี light up ตอนนั้นพลาดที่ชิราคาวาโกะ เนื่องจากรอบรถเต็มตั้งแต่ 2 เดือนก่อน และต้องเดินทางกลับนาโกย่า จึงได้ดูที่นี่แทน ค่าเข้า 300 yen ถือว่าไม่น่าเสียดาย รถรอบแรกที่จะออกจากทากายาม่า 18.00 น. กลับเร็วสุด 19.00 น. สำหรับคนที่ต้องกลับทางไกลอาจไม่ทันรถไฟ เช่น นาโกย่า รถเที่ยวตรง รอบสุดท้าย 18.45 น. ดังนั้น ถ้าไม่ได้พักใกล้ๆ ต้องวางแผนการเดินทางให้ดี ถ้ามีเพื่อนหลายคนไปแท๊กซี่ถือว่าคุ้ม ราคาเฉลี่ย 1000-1200 yen ขึ้นกับมิเตอร์ค่ะ The first bus from Takayama station is 6am and the round trip back at 7pm. So plan ahead if you don't stay... More

If you are into history, this place has lots of Japanese history. It basically shows you how people in the old old Japan used to live. There are some interesting artifacts along with their description and some have a bit of history behind them. Walk insided the wooden houses I recommend it, it feel as if you are traveling back...

I arrived when it was snowing heavily in March, and it made for a truly beautiful sight! There were exhibitions of hinamatsuri dolls in the old houses. Because spring comes late in the mountains, the town celebrates hinamatsuri in March instead of in February. If it's snowing heavily and you don't bring boots, you can borrow them for free at...

We came in early january and there was no snow. It's 15 minutes from takayama. Most of the houses were closed and the only thing you can do is to walk along the small aisle from house to house. Since there's no snow, it's pretty much nothing there... Just farm houses with a little bit of yellow lights and green... More

Very close to main Takayama and I walked from the train station which took about half an hour maybe? A very picturesque and quiet area where you can loose yourself in the beauty of a traditional Japanese town. The local people are justly proud of this little beauty!

It takes persistence to find the Hida Folk Village if you are travelling independently - the sign posting is very poor. Thank goodness we did, though. It costs next to nothing in entrance fees and once inside, there is plenty to see on the organised walk-around tour. Essentially, traditional houses from a variety of trades have been moved from their... More
