Located in the heart of the Japanese Alps, Takayama is an excellent option for those seeking a countryside jaunt. Commonly referred to as Hida-Takayama, you will find several opportunities to appreciate the cultural legacy of Japan. The city’s ‘old town’ is well preserved and is frequented by history aficionados throughout the year. A gateway to the hiking paradise of mountainous Hida, Takayama is home to ancestral old homes, temples and shrines. The quaint streets in the Sanmachi Suji District are charmingly picturesque with the thatched-roof houses, restaurants, sake breweries and cafés. Your trip to Takayama culminates with a visit to Hida Folk Village, a wonderful open-air museum, brimming with old storehouses, logging huts, farmhouses and the former village head’s house.
