  • Giant space reminiscent of Mayan and Inca civilization. Had matches in the quiet neighborhood of the high mountains without discomfort. From station is about 5 minutes by taxi. Space and better than we expected, art and history and also met further exhibits of dinosaurs and fossils and happy children learning corner in some places. Also prints stamps press corner, are sensibly arranged particularly North Hokusai painting into care was very helpful throughout also became a few souvenirs!

  • 7amo0ode 7amo0ode Museum arrived after touring the city, teciama to the motimito Museum in the Japanese Alps in ג'יפו province. The Museum is dedicated to kotama Okada who heads the old religious worships. . The entire building is made of stone. To get to there face down or mysterious nature corridor to the pyramid tochavalm or standard steps or escalator. There is no doubt that the morrgsht effect of the Maya civilization in South America. The 365 Windows give pyramid light bronze sculptures are large but the pyramid also serves as Memorial Hall. The museum displays ancient artifacts anthropologists and archaeologists side exhibits from Greece, Egypt, China and South America, as well as traditional Japanese crafts and kliaograpia. In Japanese contemporary artists paintings galleries, paintings of imprsionsts artists.

  • High mountains a few times we went here for the first time. Because rain was awful no choice but was surprisingly good. Customers blame the weather or sparse. Took us to kind of entrance. Van Gogh, Picasso, Chagall, Yokoyama Taikan, Utamaro etc famous painters are exhibited. Last, religious organizations are doing the "more expensive there should be" I thought.

  • The architecture is great but the exhibits are a bit weird.
  • A great collection of both fine art and artefacts that represent ancient civilisations. The memorial hall for the founder of the Mahikari organisation is like no other memorial I've seen. The last room is awe inspiring!
  • Wonderful exhibits!
  • I was there in 2009. It is wonderful!!!
  • Look in the unique architecture of the pyramid are exhibiting works of art. There are services, small children can experience free quizzes and giveaways. Building on the route from the ground up with on NG shooting spots are basically shooting inside the building, can be taken from there. Photo is taken with a combination of SEL1224G 12 mm to 7RM2. I think that shooting wide angle lens without force is difficult. It is recommended if you want to take on the Memorial, will bring the wide angle lens. Admission is 900 yen and large parking.

Where to stay in Takayama

Look along the banks of the river running north-south through Takayama for arguably the town's best accommodations. Traditional ryokan (guesthouses) with onsite onsen (traditional Japanese spas) occupy scenic positions across this central area, displaying fine carpentry skills of the locals and the distinctive architectural style they developed over the years. West of this area, you'll find a number of basic ryokan, with a decent selection of side-street hostels and standard hotels around the train station.
