The Takayama Jinya is a government office that was used to get the Hida province under the rule of Edo Bakufu (Shogunate) and was formerly a residential place that belonged to Lord Kanamori.

The place was designated an historical site in 1929 and today is one of the most iconic places to see classic Japanese architecture with a fine use of wooden shingles, timber and clay store rooms. A farmers’ market is held here every morning and is the perfect time to explore the place as well try some local food.

  • If you are in Takayama already, it will be good to visit this place. It is location no. 19 on tourist map. Outside look like general temple we saw but it was an old government place for government staff to stay when they travelled to this town. There is small admission fee but High school students are free. The Jinya morning market (one of the 2 morning market in Takayama) is just right in front of this location as well. Many local products, fruits, food handmade bags, etc are sold with local and good price.

  • I really enjoyed the experience of visiting this place, very interesting to see the traditional architecture and the garden is really beautiful. There are some English translations, so you will be able to understand the majority of the explanations.

  • There's good idea that make a place for travellers only the red bridge not enough to make an activity that place nothing special or historical or anything but City government and people make that place. The street was good for visit on last evening shop and street open there lights that make its magical place for dating.

  • A beautiful house out of the Edo Period. It shows you how an official and his family used to live and conduct business there. A beautiful garden as well.

  • My favorite town in Japan. Not small but quaint. Just had a great vibe with long street market and plenty of restaurants and delicious beef.
