4.1/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web
Visit Takayama Jinya, the only surviving "Jinya," a government office during the Edo period. The structure was built in the late 17th century to be used by officials from Edo to govern the Hida region around Takayama. Reconstructed in 1816 and used as a public office building until 1969, it's the only building of its type that remains in Japan. Step inside to explore the chambers, evocative of the Japanese lifestyle of the period. Wander through the workspaces, kitchens, and meeting rooms, or hang out in the peaceful courtyard.

  • Nice museum with a number of original furnished rooms. Also a number of artifacts from the Edo period. All in all, very worth it.

  • Of taxing only the existing County magistrate major buildings here Takayama Jinya is only. See signs for yourself to enjoy while we recommend volunteer guides for free. Informative guide is a guide plate 10 times, notice how often during the Edo period. On the day in better, but arranged in advance will help stand. Will also take a look in the morning doing morning market filled with the tents ago so how do.

  • is good place to vist for better understanding from what class (tatame) all about😊😊 & very nice Japanese garden🌸🌷🍀
  • Heritage site, educational but not that exciting for kids. Very tranquil. Gardens are not that pretty or just average comparing to most Japanese gardens.
  • The government building is nothing spectacular. However, we came in the fall, and there were a couple of trees in the garden which has fiery red leaves, and so got a few really good pictures. It's ~400 yen per person for entrance fee, which has not a lot, but you might decide it's better to spend that money somewhere else.
  • Nice place to visit but not that special.
  • Nice old house
