Takayama Jinya (高山陣屋)

4.0

Historical Monument

Takayama Jinya was where prefectural governors and deputies exercised government since Hida was put under direct control of the Shogunate in 1692. The purpose of direct jurisdiction was access to the abundant timber and underground resources. After the Meiji Restoration, this building was also used as the Takayama prefectural government building. In order to conserve Takayama Jinya, 16 years of repair and reconstruction work were undertaken and were completed in 1996. There were 60 regional headquarters and sub-headquarters nationwide at the end of the Edo period, but the Takayama Jinya is the only building left in existence today. Takayama Jinya has been certified with two stars in the Michelin Green Guide Japan.

Reviewed:2020/02/13 Worthy or not?
Up to you whether to visit or not. if you have visited other castles or local houses I think there is no need to pay entrance to visit this place.
Reviewed:2020/01/08 Nice way to see how it was
Get to see how people lived and no doubt some still do in Japan. Cultural experience but fun and chilled
Reviewed:2019/12/26 Nice architecture and design buildings, nice compound!
We were on a day tour and Takayama was our 2nd stop for the day. We had about 1.5 hr to explore this place and so it was quite a rushing visit, simply touch and go mode.

          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.
