It will be good if there is more translation of English. Although some of the wordings are in kanji which we able to read, however it took us longer to read and understand. 😅 Good history knowledge for children. My boys took a stamp too.

It's a quiet place in a quiet part of the town. Don't forget to stamp your booklet as memento.

A peaceful museum tucked away from the crowd in a traditional warehouse. It's free, and it stays open for very long (exhibition/warehouse: 09:00-19:00, garden: 07:00-21:00). There are 14+ exhibitions related to Takayama city and Gifu prefecture on various topics, such as Takayama Festivals, warfare in Ancient Japan, Enku (the great Buddah sculpturist), paintings and even traditional firemen. Downside is that the exhibition is in Japanese only, but the exhibits alone are interesting to look at. The warehouse itself is beautiful inside and out. I especially enjoyed looking at the exposed beams.

Great experience with an old authenticated livelihood of Japan historically farm stays. It’s where you can experience the history of old folk village in Hida Japan.

The place is really amazing! Depicting the history of Takayama from the Famous "Yatai" festival floats to the Samurai leadership, events and crafts, religion, life and culture. You get a wholesome feel of of the Ancient Takayama before actually visiting it. No photos allowed here though.
