Takayama Jinya

Takayama, Japan

Takayama Jinya is a local government office of the Tokugawa Shogunate, the only remaining example in Japan. The compound has been restored in Edo-period style with shingle roofs and tatami-mat rooms; it includes residential and office space, guest rooms, storage rooms, and even an interrogation room.
