Well preserved buildings but it was very crowded when we visited and guides were talking over each other. Bit difficult to see the history, but worth a visit.

In the old heart of Takayama. It's free to visit and has an interesting photo display that shows the past history of the region.

Was there on a rainy and cold day but that did not stop me from walking around Takayama and the Municipal Government Hall was free admission, worth the visit.

As a couple of English-speaking Americans, we didn't get a lot out of our visit to this historic site. It is an impressive complex of buildings, but difficult to comprehend. There is a nice garden area.

We were to tired to go in. The architecture was incredible and we enjoyed that. We actually went back to the market for some more shopping. Looking for a vase!

Very well preserved and well maintained. Definitely worth a visit as you get to see how a really old municipal government building actually looks like and with a bit of imagination, you can imagine how it was run during the Edo era.
