Travel Tips for Takayama

Hida Folk Village

by tigerjapan

Hida Folk Village (Hida-no-sato) is a model of a Hida folk village. It covers 99,000 square meters and includes National Cultural Treasures and 30 buildings recreating Hida’s historical look. Many of these buildings were transported here from other parts of the region.

The museum's main attractions are a number of gassho-zukuri houses. The massive farmhouses with their steep, thatched roofs which look like praying hands ("gassho-zukuri") were moved here from the nearby Shirakawago valley.

All exhibited buildings are carefully preserved and are open to the public to explore. Also, the buildings' indoor fireplaces are lit every morning, making this outstanding open air museum a treat not only for the eyes but also for the nose. The smoke from the fires acts to protect the wood from insects.

In each building, everyday articles (which are now regarded as folk art) recalling the life and culture of mountain farming villages are displayed.

The sloped and thatched-roof houses in this open are museum allow us to see what life in the mountains would have been like in the Edo period. This is one museum NOT to be missed for those interested in history and/or Japan.
