Takayama 3

11 October: We visited the Hida Folk Village, which has gathered together in a realistic setting a large number of village buildings that had been relocated after being flooded out or threatened in their original sites. Normally this is frowned upon by archaeologists, but in this case it has been done very sensitively and the result is a most interesting site that illuminates much rural village life. The Folk Village is on the slopes of a mountain just to the south of Takayama. Next we’ll move on to the wonderful art nouveaux Hida Museum of Art nearby.
