  • Came here in December so a lot of places are closed. Walking along this market you get a chance to try out a lot of the local ( probably targeted at tourists ) food. Be sure to go into the stores and try the sample. Also, if the hot custard pudding guy is there, GET IT! It is so good. The tamaten is also delicious, a Japanese marshmallow.
  • A must to go to the morning market in this quiet little town! It is situated after the bridge and besides a very beautiful rivers with some rapids and even big pretty fishes swimming inside the crystal clear waters! Many local small stalls selling home grown veggies and some selling flowers and hand made accessories and even little snacks stall which are piping hot! Don't miss the coffee stall run by a local young man who speaks good English and very friendly and above all made very good coffee and can sit comfortably with chairs provided by him! The beautiful sound of the rushing waters to the rocks at the big rivers form a natural music and very soothing and refreshing while drinking the hot coffee and eating the snacks and enjoy the fresh morning airs and looking at the locals walking around! Unforgettable nice experience of this simple morning market in this lovely little town!
  • A truly beautiful place as you walk down the river with a market beside it. However the market itself had not as much things to see as I'd expected and it'll probably take you about only 20min to finish it.
  • Nice place to buy gifts or just simply walk along the river and watch.fruits and vegetables and much more of local food.Really nice ambience
  • A small but charming market by the river, filled with locals and tourists. The Takoyaki vendor is delicious as is the custard filling cakes. The river has plenty of fish, koi bright orange and packs of Ayu sweet fish, a nice spot for a picnic by the fast flowing river.

Where to stay in Takayama

Look along the banks of the river running north-south through Takayama for arguably the town's best accommodations. Traditional ryokan (guesthouses) with onsite onsen (traditional Japanese spas) occupy scenic positions across this central area, displaying fine carpentry skills of the locals and the distinctive architectural style they developed over the years. West of this area, you'll find a number of basic ryokan, with a decent selection of side-street hostels and standard hotels around the train station.
