  • don't expect a morning market like those big scale ones. it's just a 1 street market, around 200metres. we tried the Tamaten (a small cube of yellow looking egg) it's yummy and sweet! also try the hid...  more »
  • Feels good to shop and stroll slowly along the river. It is one of handful of Hida beef to eat. Walk in a wheelchair is very little.

  • A great place along the riverbank to pick up some fresh fruits and veggies or other souvenirs as well as stroll along the riverbank.

  • Quaint market good for local produce and miso goods. Some souvenir shops and opportunities to taste Hida beef snaxks. Not as expansive or crowded as the Nishiki market which has more variety
  • One of the best parts of visiting Takayama is seeing the morning market along the river bank. Just take note that it completely empties out by around noon, so stopping by in the afternoon will offer nothing to see. On a sunny day, the atmosphere in the morning is incredible - there are a variety of different shops, ranging from produce to handcraft goods to snacks/drinks.
  • Very beautiful market in the morning so get up early enough. You will be able to try a lot of local products from vegetables to alcohol. You may also find gifts like chopsticks (amazing ones which you may engrave).
  • It's like a farmer's market. Support old grandmas that plant all the fruits and vegetables at their back yard. Great place to buy some apples, you can see the different type of apples grown. I am very surprise with the super sized cabbages, carrots & leeks. Was also lucky to be there on their annual 24th Day Fair! Tons of food and super lively! Check out the photos i marked 24th Day Fair.
  • great place, location is so good beside the river. It's a bigger than the another one
