Authentic homes moved from a nearby valley and preserved intact make this attraction a very special "open air museum."

Thatched cottages and lake
Oct 2019
I dropped in here briefly. It's easy to visit with the car park just down a short hill from the entrance. There weren't many people about and I just wandered around the lake to see the view. It was pretty but having just visited Shirakawago and Gokyama it was more of the same.

From the walking tour itself in Takayama, we decide to make a short trip to Hida Folk Village by bus. We get the package price of 1,000yen per person for the bus and admission ticket, it’s very convenient. The bus rides takes about 20 mins from the Takayama Nohi Bus station and there are several bus trips in a day. At the Hida Folk village, we can view the Hida mountain and walk around the area which tells us the history and looks at the types of houses that was built by different folks with grass straws, wood, stones, etc. There were some snows and during winter time, some walk path will be blocked because it’s slippery. To me, its quite like Shirakawago, looking at those houses with different design structures and I was told that it has beautiful view too at night with the lights on. A good place for photograph. We didn’t stay till evening and spent about 2 hours there, then took the bus back to station.

Very interesting. Must visit.
Feb 2020 • Friends
Absolutely love how the japanese people run museums. You can touch everything in the houses and explore like you are literally visiting real live houses unlike many where they shield and covers all items with covers. This makes the visit very intimate and authentic. Visited in winter and some houses are closed for visit but overall, it was a great place to learn more about takayama history and everything was very beautifully remodeled and laid out. Must go when u are in takayama.

Preview to Shirakawago
Dec 2019 • Couples
It was a slushy snow day when we visited. We weren't sure if we should continue our plan to visit Hida Folk Village given the sleet. After waiting out at a cafe and checked Tripadvisor for user reviews to see if it was really worth the trip, I saw a user who mentioned the paths in the village are well paved even for rainy weather, we decided to go ahead with plan. And I'm so glad we did! It was peaceful with no crowd (since its rainy) and the slushy snow completed the dreamy winter landscape!

Tip: Complimentary umbrellas and even rubber boots are available for rent (found towards the left of the ticketing office after you ente). We missed that out as we started our walk towards the right. We would love to have changed into the waterproof rubber boots if we had realised earlier.

If you don't have time for Shirakawa go
Jun 2019
Hida folk village is a real village since the 50s, you can do great local experiences here, meet local people and get the opportunity to see real gassho zukury style houses. If you don't have time or money to go till the beautiful Shirakawa go, this is also a great compromise! You can go by walk 40 min, bycicle 20 min, bus 10 min, I reccomend the bus. You can match the bus ticket with the entrance for less than 10 dollars! It is a great place, I also reccomend to respect the environment, the people and to have a common sense while you are visiting.

Fascinating village in the country, away from cities , separated geographically by mountains. Felt a bit sorry for them as tourism seemed slightly invasive for this serene lifestyle, but it’s a living and an educational peak for a westerner into Japan’s rural past

I loved this Wintery step back in time
Jan 2020
Coming from Australia snow is a real treat. When we went to the Folk Village on New Years Day it was thick with powdery snow. We could still walk around as the sky was clear and blue. The water wheel was iced over and the thatched roofs had a foot of white powder. I was glad it was open however some of the areas such as the 500 year old hilltop castle were closed due to safety reasons.

Very beautiful open air museum
Jan 2020 • Couples
Museums in easy walk from the train station. The walk alone is stunning with all of the snow-capped mountains around you. The museum itself is stunning! Well laid out with old home several hundred years old from the area all brought to on location. You're allowed in the houses as long as you take your shoes off. Very interesting to see how thatched roofs were made. How in this very rough climate families lived and thrived hundreds of years ago. Is very Hands-On for children you can ring bells, try different crafts, learn about silkworms, learn about logging in the winter and learn how people lived in the winters in the harsh conditions of the Hida area. Highly recommended children would love it too! Also, the train ride from Nagoya is absolutely amazing views coming up through the valley.

It depends...if you are lucky, you will be ever grateful.
Dec 2019
Yes, it depends. When you visit this place. If you are there anytime other than peak of winter, you get what you see in those pictures on this page mostly. In spring, its lovely flowers. Autumn is deep orange and beautiful. Winter? Sweet spot. Becos this is a winter alpine land and the wintry scenery is beyond comparison. And you can safely skip Shirakawa-go becos... I will let you into a secret. The group tourists head for Shirakawa-go. They outnumber the houses. They outnumber the locals 100:1. Here in Hida no Sato, you are, well, just you! Look, if you dont believe me, pay a visit to this place in winter. Plan your trip well and time it with the snow. The curated slopes, the mountains, the tall pine trees are let's just say magical! Unbeatable. Unique. Best.

Its the best kept secret of Gifu. No one has done a review of this place yet. I will be doing one on Youtube. Follow me! Meanwhile enjoy some of my photos and sit back and plan.

Historical village reconstruction
Feb 2019
It's a really gorgeous historical village, and English signage is ample. You really get a sense of the history of the region and how people used to live. Bloody tough lives they must have had! The moss and nature and pond was just beautiful. There was enough English signage for my parents to enjoy but definitely not everything is translated. In winter, some parts of the village are off limits which was a huge shame - I wanted to see the old village shrine!
