Takayama Jinya, Takayama Reviews

  • There are many paid attractions in Takayama, but I’d say this one really is the one worth getting your Yens out for. The path within the castle itself is well defined and explained, and the views of the garden are wonderful. The exhibition at the end though is for the most part not translated in English, a real shame. When you’re done with your walk, do stop by the « rest area » to the right of the entrance to grab a vending machine drink and enjoy their free wifi.

  • Historical place, will understand the old times of Japan normal life. Location is 15minutes walk from JR Takayama station. Good for half-day trip here.

  • Great old house but they don’t do much more than the basics on upkeep and showing off what could be a much better spot for the bus loads of tourists.

  • It's interesting to see a glimpse of how Japanese Samurai lived in the past. I'm mostly shook'd by the Torture Chamber, Weaponry and housewares collection and the men-carried Carriage. Plastic bags are provided to cover our footwear and wet umbrellas. Please return the plastic covers to the staff at the exit. Please do not step into exhibition areas or touch things you are not allowed to touch. Some items are vulnerable. Please be considerate in using nano-pod (selfie stick). You might end up disturbing other visitors or causing damage to exhibited items.

  • 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.
