Takayama Jinya, Takayama Reviews - Write a Review

  • Arrived 3.30pm and opening time was until 4.30pm yet not allowed in anymore. There were supposed to be English guides as well. Passed by 3 times in total and each time the answer was 'later' and last time well...see the above. 2 stars because it's supposed to be nice and gives good explanation and feel about edo period.

  • Worth to go if you want to understand about history of Japan. If not, it is still a nice place to enjoy the nice scene. We went here in Nov, and could see falling red leaves!

  • Very interesting to learn about the history of Japan. A very historic building and helpful guides that explain all you want to know.

  • Located a short walk from Sanmachi Suji, Takayama Jinya served as the local administrative offices of the Tokugawa Shogunate that ruled Japan from 1600 to 1868. The compound itself dates back to 1615 and the present buildings date back to 1816. You can tour the rooms and learn about how business was conducted back in the day. Rice was paid as tax during the Tokugawa Period and you’ll note the all-important rice granary in the compound.

  • Historically significant complex, visit to get an idea of the life and times of the Edo period. There are occasionally free English tours conducted, be sure to get the guided tour, it really helps bring the place to life. Our guide was excellent.
