Hida Folk Village, Takayama Reviews

  • I went late February so it was all covered in snow, which added to the charm, and found it delightful! I was there approximately 3pm on a Thursday and it was very peaceful, hardly anyone there. There was enough english descriptions to help appreciate what you were seeing - at times I would have liked more detail. I belive they will be continuing to develop the site by adding farming areas (with crops etc) to add to the experience. Well worth the visit!

  • Good place to learn in detail about architecture and olden days way of leaving. The string is carefully curated and we'll integrated to the natural context. A good start for a sighting plan if you have at least 4 hours on the site.

  • 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.

  • Fantastic spot. I spent 3 hours here. Lots of culture and history. Really fun in the winter.

  • This is he place to go for a more authentic Japanese village than the nearby Shirakawa go which is more publicized due to the photos from the look out spot. Here you get hands on and can tour all the houses and villages. In Shirakawa it’s mainly just walking around.
