Takayama Festival Floats Exhibition Hall (高山祭屋台会館)

4.0

Museum / Science Museum

The Takayama Festival is one of Japan’s three great Hikiyama Festivals and registered a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage. This hall has a standing exhibit of yatai, the gorgeous floats that are the festival’s main attraction. It’s on the precincts of Sakurayama Hachimangu Shrine, at the center of the festival action. Four of the 11 yatai used in the fall’s Takayama Festival are on display, and they change them annually in March, July, and November. They also maintain a TV room where you can watch a video of the festival, as well as a reference area with festival paraphernalia and documents. It’s a great way to learn about the festival’s history and happenings in detail.

Review of Takayama Festival Floats Exhibition Hall

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2020/03/08 Worthwhile but expensive
I write expensive because it’s double the price of some of the other museums, and half the length, however Japan doesn’t really do traditional tourism yet, so when you take into account that it is...
Reviewed:2019/11/26 A real WOW
One of the places I loved very much in Japan. I wish I could see the festivals with the floats moving in the streets. The floats are beautiful and impressive.
Reviewed:2019/11/20 Well worth a visit
A must see in Takayama. There are a number to floats on display and a introduction to how these are used still today.

          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.
