Great historical architecture is well worth seeing.

After we had breakfast and took break, we went to Takayama Jinya in the snow.

陣屋は、江戸時代の役所のようなところですが、陣屋が残っているのはこの高山だけです。

“Jinya” was the administrative headquarters of a small domain or parcel of land held by the Tokugawa shogunate, as well as the residence of the head of the administration, and the associated grain storehouse.

Inside the architecture is open to the public (with fee).

There are many historical documents and exhibits in the architecture.

Farmar’s market is held every morning in front of the gate and the market is popular as well as Miyagawa Farmer’s market in Takayama city.

陣屋の前の広場では朝市が開かれます。この日は御覧の大雪だったのでお店はほどんとありませんでした。

Well, because of heavy snowfall, the market wasn’t held.

It is a must visit architecture when you come to Takayama !
No, you should be Takayama for visiting there !

しんしんと積もる雪。。。

Though it was still early in the morning in the heavy snow, there were already lots of tourists around Takayama Jinja.
Because we entered the gate sooner than them, we could take photos of inside the architecture without people. We were lucky 🙂

By the way, Takayama Jinya is the only surviving Jinya now.

There is goverment office (Oyakusho), restroom (Goyoba), hall, employee’s houses (Yakutaku), Examine room (Ginmisho), Oshirasu , rice storage and so on.

Well, I imagine that it was really too cold at that time…

それにしても、これ、この時代の人、冬はほんと寒かっただろうなあ。。。

I say again. You should be there, Takayama !
I want to go there again, too ! During warmy season :p

Though it was too cold, snowscape is splendid all the same.

There’s a small dango shop in front of Takayama Jinya. The lady might serve hot one, it got lukewarm quickly while taking the photo :p
