  • Exploring this place gave me a real sense of the Japanese Culture. The scenery is beautiful, it is worth taking time to stop and look around. Walk up the hill for a view of the area.

  • Surprisingly good experience, the best place i went in Takayama, small but very interesting village, at the beginning there was some really fun old school toys and i had a great time trying them all, the village is very beautiful and natural a lot of events happening all year, is really interesting to get inside the houses too and i was lucky to find the shrine open when i went, a very good surprise in Takayama ✅ 9/10
  • I love this place even though I have not much time to spend there. It would be nice to visit during other season. You can come here instead of Shiragawagoe for experience the heritage house and history.
