Takayama City Archives Museum高山市政記念館

It’s at the southern end of the Preservation Districts for Groups of Traditional Building in Sanmachi, Takayama City. You can look out from Ichinomachi to Sannomachi, and the Nakabashi Bridge that spans the Miyagawa River is right before your eyes. The entire building is made of hinoki cypress, and various parts have sliding glass pane doors, which were rare when it was built. This building was state-of-the-art in those days and still maintains its former features. Now it’s a museum that preserves and displays Takayama City’s administrative materials, information about Takayama City history through panel displays and realia from the period.
