Takayama is a city that has long been loved and protected by its residents and surrounding nature. It is a city that boasts rich culture and an atmospheric townscape.
From traditional wooden machiya houses, nostalgic shops that line streets, historical Japanese buildings that have stood since the Edo Period, to eateries that showcase culinary delights using local ingredients. Slip back in time as you stroll along the stone-cobbled streets of Takayama Old-Town (Sanmachi Suji district), visit the riverside Miyagawa morning market, or explore the shrines that dot the surrounding mountain ranges. A must-visit is the historical village of Shirakawa-go, a short bus ride away.Click for more details
