From Hida-Takayama

Hida-Takayama has preserved the feeling of a castle town, apparent by its history-filled streets. With the latticed bay windows and linked eaves of merchants’ houses in Sanmachi Suji, the enduring historical temples and shrines of Higashiyama, and the reproduction of Hida’s traditional mountain farming villages of sloped-roof houses at Hida Folk Village, the town itself could be called a sightseeing spot.

Takayama was settled as far back as the Jōmon period. Takayama is best known for its inhabitants' expertise in carpentry. It is believed carpenters from Takayama worked on the Imperial Palace in Kyoto and on many of the temples in Kyoto and Nara. The town and its culture, as they exist today, took shape at the end of the 16th century, when the Kanamori clan built Takayama Castle. About a hundred years later the city came under the rule of theTokugawa shogunate. However, the high altitude and separation from other areas of Japan kept the area fairly isolated, allowing Takayama to develop its own culture over about a 300-year period.These many years yielded furniture and wooden products with rich warmth from the wood.
