Hida no Sato (Hida Folk Village)

Hida no Sato (Hida Folk Village) Review

These traditional farmhouses, dating from the Edo era, were transplanted from all over the region. Many of the houses are A-frames with thatch roofs called gassho-zukuri (praying hands). A dozen of the buildings are "private houses" displaying folk artifacts like tableware and weaving tools. Another five houses are folk-craft workshops, with demonstrations of ichii ittobori (wood carving), Hida-nuri (Hida lacquering), and other traditional regional arts. It's possible to walk here from Takayama Station, but the roads are busy. It's better to buy a combination bus/folk village ticket at the bus station next to Takayama Station.
