Situated in Takayama's old town next to the Sakurayama Hachiman Shrine and about a 25-minute walk from Takayama Station, The Takayama Festival Float Exhibition Hall is home to 11 of the floats which are used during the spring and autumn Takayama Festival.

Four floats are on display at a time and are rotated three times a year during March, July, and November.

Several hundreds of years old, the elaborately decorated floats are excellent examples of the legendary craftsmanship of the Takayama artisans and are considered important national cultural assets.
