Winter Tours / Guided Tour Hida Folk Village Walk Tour(Private Only)
Gassho-style houses in Takayama city
**Reservation for winter tours 2019-2020 starts from July 2019**
Although Shirakawa-go is known as an iconic tourist attraction in Hida area, there is a special place where you can explore “gassho-style” houses even in Takayama.
Just 10 minutes drive away from the central city, Hida Folk Village (Hida no Sato) allows you to travel back in time. The small fairy tale-like village is a replication of the traditional and authentic lifestyle of the Hida locals against the disappearance of small villages resulted from the rapid economic growth in the 50s and 60s.
Hida area has been suffered from the harsh weather conditions, yet the locals actually have embraced nature and developed the wisdom to survive in it. By visiting houses in the village, our guide will explain the genuine lifestyle in Hida.
Discover the nostalgic village as if you were living there!
