Takayama Jinya | Town of Valuable Timber Resource

The Takayama Jinya served as the local government office, headed by the officials dispatched from Edo. Because of its valuable timber resources, the Hida Region around Takayama was put under direct control of the Tokugawa Shogunate in 1692. The present building complex includes various rooms for administrative purposes, offices, kitchens, toilets, bath rooms, residential space, a court room and storehouses. It was in official use until 1969, and is now open to the public as a museum in Gifu prefecture.
