Breathtaking Trip

Simply can spend few hours walking around, taking wonderful family photos. The kids enjoyed the trip as much as the grown ups.

I enjoyed the architecture of the buildings. The setting is quite lovely. There were a few people selling the crafts they made but I wish there had been a nice souvenirs shop on the premises.

We had limited time in Takayama but we were glad we found time to visit this place. It was a fairly cold morning but the 4km walk up to the village warmed us up. The entry price was fair and even though we arrived 25 minutes before opening they still let us in. ( I'm not sure if that is... More

This open air museum features several traditional houses and buildings, which were dismantled at their original sites and rebuilt at this place. You can take a bus to get here, take it at the train station, it would take your their in 10 minutes, we walked the distance and it only took us about 40 minutes to get there.

This is a rather small open air museum but terrific. We visited with our three young kids and all of them were entertained her out. Their hands on toys and games to play with and buildings that you can go inside. During fall the foliage is gorgeous because it's tucked in the mountains. Highly recommend!

The village uphill from the town. Entrance 700 yen / adult. 1 hour is enough to turn around the village.

Absolutely worth a visit to see a japanese village as it used to be. Houses have been reconstructed beautifully & loved that they are now "filling out" the village by growing rice & shittake mushrooms just as they were done a hubdred years ago.

This collection of houses from around the area is so easy to meander around and enjoy. It is almost completely free of the commercial activities that spoil so many attractions. There are 'Village' games to have a try at (no charge). The houses have easy to understand explanations of their history and function. One visitor was quickly sketching the buildings... More
