Hida Folk Village - Review
The Hida Minzoka Mura Folk Village consists of 30 traditionally built structures including homes with thatched roofs, shrines and small sheds. The nearby Goami Pond adds to the landscape and is perfect to take a few moments to relax at its shore.
You can explore the homes and shrines as you like and see traditional tools, machinery and even see hand-made crafts take form in front of your eyes. Try your hand at making things from straw, wood and clay as you see the master craftsmen spin their magic. Do make sure you buy a few souvenirs before you leave.

Hida Folk Village, Takayama Reviews
We liked this place very much indeed. About 30 historically important buildings sit in pleasing harmony with the lovely surrounding landscape, it seems well managed and maintained, the exhibits are interesting, and (at least when we visited on a May afternoon) there were no busloads of tourists to contend with. The owners or managers seem determined to play down the commercial aspects and keep it all quite natural and informative. The buildings have been relocated here from around the Hida region and illustrate the different kinds of houses and work spaces villages had 100+ years ago. If you don't have a car, I assume a bus, taxi or longish walk from the city will get you here, but it is definitely worth making an effort
Really beautiful museum of old traditional Japanese hosts from around the region. All the houses have detailed information in English, and there are some activities to try. There is a combined entrance ticket with a return bus fare to/from Takayama station for ¥900..
Amazing! Very well maintained village resembling the folk life from the Hida region. There is a lot to see, and everywhere is elaborate information in English about how the houses were constructed, how woodcutting was done, how they cultivated silk worms, etc. Definitely worth a visit!
Really nice place to spend a morning. There are lots of mini activities to keep kids entertained as it's quite history heavy but as big kids ourselves we found these great - wooden water pistols, puzzles, costumes, collecting stamps. Interesting insight into the traditional village life with plenty of explanation in English. I'd recommend feeding the fish as it's really entertaining/gross.
Wish I had more time for this place. Very hands on exhibits. Lots of structures and descriptions of how to make silk. Amos com demos of how to use water wheels to do work.
