  • The morning market is in the heart of Takayama. It’s small, but the accompanying view of the river, combined with unique delicacies makes it worth 30 minutes of your morning. Breakfasts can be hard to...  more »
  • I went to two places before the tents and Miyagawa morning market. Tents before half-time was 8:00 less stores, the grandmother who was selling pickled vegetables and apples. Miyagawa was 10:00 half. Many shops selling woodwork and grilled Octopus and the vibrant. It was noon.

  • We really enjoyed walking through the area and the market. There were a lot of local crafts on display and many fresh foods to sample! Note that although I read it was on until noon, many stalls packed up before 11:30.
  • Filled with tourists and after two minutes wish we had headed elsewhere, but continued on along temple pathway. Much better destination. Skip the food stalls and head over to seeing the living Japanese past.
  • Nice little stalls from local craftmen: quilt, indigo, honey a long the river. Kids can feed the carps and ducks ...
  • 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.
  • Lovely setting and a variety of stalls. Not busy and easy pace.
