Takayama Festival Floats Exhibition Hall高山祭屋台会館

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.

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.

A must see in Takayama. There are a number to floats on display and a introduction to how these are used still today.

The first one is the floats exhibit, extraordinary!! Do not miss it.
This century old floats are used in a autumn festival, beautifully crafted.
The exhibit is...

          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.
