Hida Folk Village, Takayama Reviews - Write a Review

  • Such a cool place to visit. Honestly, wasn't expecting to see and enjoy so much. The village is so quiet and peaceful. We spent hours walking from structure to structure through the woods. The history is fascinating. The design of the massive home is fantastic. We spent most of the day here and both children and the adults loved it.

  • A collection of very old houses from around the place that have been moved here to this cute little village for protection and display. I really enjoyed visiting, the houses were amazing considering their age. There is a stamp-collecting route and a bit of tourist kitsch to have fun with too, which I found a bizarre but fun (and very Japanese) combo.

  • It's was beautiful to see, during the night. It is all fake but that doesn't matter. They rebuild a small part of Shirakawa-go as a open air museum. Easy accessible for any one. Very recommended to visit at night. Just take the bus from the bus station, short ride.

  • This is a great place in which to get a glimpse of 1600s Japanese culture. There are many buildings with excellent discriptors. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it!

  • Interesting collection of old Japanese buildings, with signs in Japanese and English explaining about the architecture, work, lifestyle and culture of villagers in the Eco period. Only a half hour walk from Takayama rail station, and past the Museum of Art, so not a long way out of our way. The buildings and displays are static (no actors playing out villager roles) but interesting. We went mid week and there were almost no visitors.
