Wander among historic farmhouses and homes at Hida Minzoka Mura Folk Village (Hida no Sato), an open-air museum preserving a range of buildings and architectural styles from the nation's rugged mountain regions. The grounds of the museum contain nearly 30 structures, including numerous examples of rural constructions with distinctive thatched roofs.

As you explore the wooded grounds nestled among the lush hills, you'll learn about the region's rural way of life through the artifacts and decorations present in each house, some of which date back nearly five centuries.

Un sitio muy bonito por el que dar un paseo. Conservan muy bien todas las casas, no es como Shirakawago porque no está habitado pero merece la pena verlo.

They keep all the houses very well, it is not like Shirakawago because it is not inhabited but it is worth seeing. We went late in the afternoon and there were no people so it was all very quiet.
A great place to walk around and explore. You can see several kinds of buildings, from housing and storage barns, to workshop areas. There are numerous signs and boards explaining what kind of work was done in each place, and what life was like. The price is pretty reasonable, but I do have one complaint. Due to our visiting in winter, more than half of the buildings and paths were closed off, but we still had to pay the full price.
Nice glimpse of Japan's lifestyle of old. Especially for those who wants to see bits and pieces of old villages, with slight history / explanation on each houses (like carpentry, silkworm processing etcs). Don't expect some in depth learning or such however. We went in winter so really, great atmosphere and pretty place to take pictures.
