Definitely worth a visit if you are staying in/near Takayama. The village itself is picturesque and lovely to walk through. The houses are well preserved inside and out. I found the exhibits, though somewhat basic in presentation, fascinating and rich in content.

Was a great experience seeing the traditional way of life in Japan. We decided to ride bikes here, not knowing about the steep hill! Was an easy ride back to our ryokan!
