A full reproduction of life in the Hida Region’s Yamamura

The Hida Folk Village Hida-no-Sato is a restoration of several old buildings and shrines done in the Gassho style that was endemic to the Hida region. It is a location where you can experience the nostalgia of an old mountain farming village from the Hida region. 4 buildings here have been designated as important cultural property of the country of Japan. There are private residences as well as work houses, and a number of everyday tools such as warehouses and play equipment. In an attempt to reproduce the everyday life of Hida-no-Sato, there are not just exhibits but demonstrations of craft making such as straw items, daily items, as well as vegetable and flower gardening. It is a very rare opportunity to see the intangible culture of craftsmanship, and so if you are interested it’s a must-see. From January to the end of February it is lit up at night and you can enjoy a different atmosphere in the snowy village at night. Prices for adults are 300 yen and 100 yen for elementary and junior high school students.
