    Gifu Takayama-shi Nyukawacho Gonbo 532
    "An aquarium that's part of the Takumi no Yakata Museum. It's in a traditional farmhouse built in 1882 by Kawajiri Jisuke, a master carpenter in the Hida lineage. Recreating a rich riparian environment, the aquarium has about 3,000 freshwater fish. These include large iwana char that are no longer found in Hida, nearly extinct kajika, and roughly one-meter long Sakhalin taimen. You can also experience garra rufa, also known as ""doctor fish,"" that eat dead skin."

    匠の館 森の水族館へは、都内から高山市に向かう途中で立ち寄りました。 もう少しで高山市街地に到着という辺りで、「森の水族館」という看板を見つけて細い脇道を進み行き当たりました。個人の住居を使った施設で、有料(500円)でもあったので内部見学は見合わせました。

Tucked away in the very center of Japan, Gifu prefecture houses mountains, old towns, and one of Japan’s greatest hot springs, Gero Onsen. A tour of the prefecture’s traditional architecture will take you from the mountain-enveloped wooden streets of Takayama to the mountain village of Shirakawago, where visitors can explore 250-year-old thatched roofed houses known as gassho-zukuri.
