Title: Hida Folk Village | Takayama Japan


User's Notes:
I didn't have high expectations, as I thought this would be a very touristic place. But it turned out to be a lovely morning with some great outdoor activity. It is not far from the village center so I recommend taking a taxi.

Hida Folk Village (飛騨の里, Hida no Sato) is an open air museum exhibiting over 30 traditional houses from the Hida region, the mountainous district of Gifu Prefecture around Takayama. The houses were built during the Edo Period (1603 - 1867) and were relocated from their original locations to create the museum in 1971.<br /> <br /> In a village-like atmosphere, the museum features buildings such as the former village head's house, logging huts, storehouses and a number of gassho-zukuri farmhouses.
