What is..
Hida Folk Village? (飛騨の里, Hida no Sato)

Hida Folk village is an open air museum displaying original country and alpine style housing that was built during the early Edo period. This style of housing is called gassho-style as it is styled on praying hands. This style of house was created with a thick thatched roof to protect from the severe snowfalls that occur in this region during the winter.

What events are taking place?

In celebration of the Obon Festival, from the 10th until the 15th of August, Hida Folk Village will be illuminated with various colours during the evening.

The entrance fee to the village will reduced from 700 yen to 300 yen for adults and from 200 yen to 100 yen for children after 18:00

If you happen to be staying with us during this period, I recommend giving it a try as it will be absolutely beautiful.
