Festa Forest and Art Forest

The Festa Forest and Art Forest is a museum complex consisting of a Takayama Festival Museum, which exhibits festival floats excavated from the slopes of the mountain, and an adjacent Nature Forest, which includes a World Insectarium, a forest where visitors can play with squirrels, and a Tea Ceremony Forest.
The Takayama Festival Museum aims to pass on to future generations the gorgeous festival floats used in the Takayama Festival and the traditional techniques used to make them.
In addition, the Nature Forest exhibits rare butterflies and fossils collected from around the world, including the phantom Gifu butterfly discovered in Gifu Prefecture.
