Lonely Planet review
The sprawling, open-air Hida-no-Sato is a highly recommended half-day trip. It features dozens of traditional houses and buildings which were dismantled at their original sites throughout the region and rebuilt here. Well-presented displays offer the opportunity to envision rural life in previous centuries. During clear weather, there are good views of the Japan Alps. To get here, hire a bicycle, or catch a bus from Takayama bus station (¥200, 10 minutes). The Hida-no-Sato setto ken ticket combines return fare and admission to the park for ¥900. Be sure to check return times for the bus.
