STORY

Long ago, Hida was the only region in Japan allowed to fulfill its tax obligations by sending skilled wood craftsmen to the capital.
Today, Takayama’s culture is still based on the scrupulous nature of the master woodworkers who utilized wood with a prowess and sensibility that was nurtured in Hida’s rich natural environment.
Visitors to Takayama can witness shrines and temples from the Middle Ages existing among wooden buildings built by contemporary carpenters.
Traditional wooden crafts are also available.
These articles convey the skill and spirit of past Hida masters and the story of the Hida Takayama people who have coexisted with the forest for the last 1300 years.
