Takayama Jinya, Takayama

(4.1/5 based on 650+ 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.

  • 結構完好,推薦給歷史建築控、木造建築控,也是當地重要文化財,但裡面沒有太多太繁複特殊的擺設,算是可以用很快速的時間逛完。若有下雪一定更美! 
  • 想起了儿时在奶奶家的时光。真是怀念!在这里打了好久的雪仗!真是其乐无穷。可以感受到古时候当地人的生活方式。到此一游
