This site has collected and restored about 30 farmhouses and other buildings in a very pictureque setting in the hills (mountains) about Takayama.

The Hida region, due to its location was relatively islolated from the rest of Japan and these old buildings, which are 100 to several hundred years old. This is the only place that we ran across in Japan where we saw historic buildings that were not either temples or castles.

Address: 1-590 Kamiokamotomachi, Takayama
Directions: It is located up into the mountains, about 10 minutes by bus from the centre of Takayama
