These pictures were taken at the Hida Minzoku-Mura Folk Village near Takayama in Japan. The autumn colours were so beautiful when we were there.
The journalling reads - This afternoon we visited the Hida Minzoku-Mura Folk Village near Takayama. What a beautiful place with all the traditional houses and the lovely autumn colours.
It's an open air museum with traditional thatched and shingled houses relocated here to preserve them. We spent the afternoon wandering around the village, through the cottages and watching some traditional Japanese crafts.
