Hida Folk Village - Winter Illumination

Feeling helpless having failed to grab a spot on the immensely popular bus tour to the light-up event in Shirakawa-go? If you do not want to wait for one more year, we have an alternative for you. Hida Folk Village, the museum version of Shirakawa-go, is opening their door at night from Jan 9 to the end of February with the Gassho-style traditional houses being illuminated. Even though the scale might be smaller than that in Shirakawa-go, it is still reasonably pretty and much less crowded than Shirakawa-go, where you might find yourself struggling to go forward in a sea of crowds. You may even enjoy a cup of ama-zake to warm yourself up inside.

Date: Jan 9 - February 29
Time: 5.30pm - 9pm 
Admission Fee: 300 yen  
There are buses running from Takayama station to Hida Folk Village at night.
