Only a short bus ride away from the Takayama station, this open air museum folk village is really picturesque. You can learn a lot about the thatched roof houses and rural living here. In 930¥, you get an entrance ticket plus return bus from Takayama....More

When we visited the rain was torrential, but at least it meant that the crowds weren't too big- otherwise I imagine getting in and out of the houses could create big bottlenecks as people have to put shoes on and off at every house. There...More

Plenty to see and well signposted throughout the village. If you get right to the top and back of the village the "Beware of the bears" signs are a bit surprising.

Overall, this was a pleasant way to spend about 2 hours, and there are quite a few houses to see. It is also very picturesque. It is similar to Bunratty Folk Park in Ireland, but we liked Bunratty better, as it illustrated in more detail...More

A very impressive collection of Japanese farm houses from central Japan. Very nice layout, many beautiful details, lot's of explanations! The most amazing thing was to see the oldest houses resembling, on the outside, exactly like Swiss mountain houses. Same construction, similar details!
