Found the Hida Folk Village to be quite interesting, with houses brought from around the region to the site. Lots of information in English about how people lived in the different houses. A good place to while away a couple of hours.

It was sorta like being at a colonial village in the NE of the USA or a fur trappers fort in the NW, but not as cheesy touristy. The houses have been transported from around Japan to here and each building is a mini museum...More

I think I'll re-visit this place during autumn when the leaves turns red & yellow, on the day we came there's not much to see, it just has a gloomy feeling

What a great way to spend around three hours or more of your day. These homes and buildings were saved and relocated to this beautiful spot to keep alive what homes and life were like in the 1700's thru 1800's. This is a great day...More
