Takayama Jinya


Takayama is the only city remaining in Japan that has preserved the main building of its Jinya where governing duties of the Tokugawa Shogunate were carried out by his magistrates. Takayama Jinya is an office used by the Tokugawa Shogunate during the Edo Period to govern the Hida region. The building and its history tell the story of the relationship between the shogunate and the people it ruled over. You can see how taxes were collected in the form of rice harvests and how criminals were dealt with using torture. If you have any interest in the everyday life of Japanese people during the era of the samurai in Japan, Takayama Jinya is a unique opportunity that cannot be missed.
