Hida no Sato is an open air museum located 30 minutes (more or less) walk from JR Takayama Station. I was very excited when I arrived in Takayama because a friend told me that they were doing a light-up only to be disappointed that it was already over :(. I decided to visit the place on my last day in Takayama.
Sakura Guest House, where I stayed, is only 10 minutes walk to the museum but the road was slippery and of course I was playing with the snow, it took me almost 20 minutes to get there. The guest house also have 100 yen discount coupons for the museum. Regular entrance fee is 700 yen.
Let’s take a look around Hida no Sato. Let’s go.
Majority of the houses are open for viewing.
It was a nice walk in the snow, exploring the different house. I don’t have much pictures inside the houses though since most of them you have to take off your shoes when you go inside.
If you are in Takayama, Gifu Prefecture, I highly recommend checking out his place and get acquainted with the history of this place.
Entrance to the museum is 700 yen.
You can take the bus, a taxi or just walk all the way. I highly recommend the latter if you love to walk or just explore the local neighborhood.
I hope you enjoyed the tour. And for more pictures of Hida no Sato, please visit my flickr album.
