All about Takayama

  • Historic / Cultural Experiences

If you want to learn about the city of Takayama, this museum is the best place. This museum was renewed in 2011 in order to know the history and culture of Takayama. It was first founded in 1953 but closed once and remained closed until 2011. Therefore, “Takayama Museum of History and Art” has a lot of old data and exhibitions.

The admission to this museum is free. And, it opens relatively long. Although most facilities close at 5 pm. in Takayama, exhibition rooms open from 9 am to 7 pm. And, conference rooms and gardens open until 9 pm. You can also use this museum as a resting place.
One of the good plans is to visit the museum as a final spot in a day.

As for Takayama history, you can know about Nagachika KANAMORI, a feudal lord from about 400 years ago who founded the basic of Takayama. During the inner wars that opposed the Northern and Southern territories of Japan at the end of the 16th century, he served Nobunaga ODA (an important character of the end of the 16th century) and participated in a turning point, the battle of Okehazama.

And also, Kanamori family was very into the tea ceremony and its culture so the tea ceremony played an important role in the foundation of Takayama.

Takayama flourished as a castle town first. And then, merchants also developed it. There is also a preservation area, which was developed around temples.

Although they are some key points of Takayama, you can know about Takayama from ancient times to the present with a lot of data, photos, real examples and remains in this museum. Actually, these museum buildings themselves were founded with using some parts of old merchant houses.

And, there is a room where local student work is exhibited. You can learn about education and the present atmosphere in Takayama.

There are exhibition rooms about Takayama festivals, arts and crafts, traditional ceremonies and events, religion, industry, security and life. You can learn about many aspects of Takayama.
