If you are strolling around Sanmachi Suji - do stop here for a short visit . But don't have high expectations : It is nice and interesting , giving an idea about ancient Japanese living and culture .

We visited this heritage house while taking a slow walk through Takayama old town and the surrounding area. They charge a small entrance fee (young kids were free AFAIR). The house has been decently maintained with some old furniture, dresses, weapons, kitchen tools, parade stuff...More

This is a worthwhile visit for any design buff. The house is a high-watermark of Japanese design and has excellent use of materials with fine detailing. It is mostly empty, and feels somewhat forgotten. There is no free shitake tea as the guidebook suggests. But...More

This family home was built traditionally out of wood over 100 yrs ago by a rich merchant(brewer). The building itself is made out of beautiful wood and because he was well off, there are many rooms.
