Fodor's 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.
