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.
