Takayama

Step back in time with a visit to Takayama, the hillside shrines and Temples beckon you....

Takayama is an authentic Historical Town of Japan and relatively popular with overseas visitors. Takayama is a well preserved town scape from the Edo period about 400 years ago and the state of the Traditional houses is near perfect. Explore the hillside Shrines and Temples such as Takayama Shrine and Hida Kokubun Temple. The Sanmachi area is also the market area of Takayama offering many delicious and local snacks.  If you are wanting to taste some Local Japanese Rise Wine, this may also be the perfect location.

Another great thing about Takayama is that is bascailly all walkable.
Takayama Matsuri or Festival is held twice a year in October and April.  A very popular festival with Japanese and Tourists alike, we suggest you book well in advance to save any disappointment.
Approximately 50 minutes from Takayama is Shirakawago, the Unesco registered Historical Village. Here you can see the Traditional Thatched Roof houses of Japan’s yesteryear. See and be fascinated by how the Japanese lived in such an isolated area, especially in the Winter months that have heavy snowfall.

We've traveled all over the world and this was without question the best trip we've ever taken. Scott and the flawless Experience Japan Travel team delivered atrip of a lifetime. Every day was filled with enjoyable and memorable parts. The variety of activities was staggering, from non-stop delicious ramen to getting Ninja training in Kyoto to wandering through the pristine gardens in every major city to the contemporary art in Kanazawa to drinking in the Ebisu Yokocho until morning. Visiting Japan was an embarrassment of riches. Only having more time in Japan could make the trip better!... READ MORE
