  • High mountains a few times we went here for the first time. Because rain was awful no choice but was surprisingly good. Customers blame the weather or sparse. Took us to kind of entrance. Van Gogh, Picasso, Chagall, Yokoyama Taikan, Utamaro etc famous painters are exhibited. Last, religious organizations are doing the "more expensive there should be" I thought.

  • A great collection of both fine art and artefacts that represent ancient civilisations. The memorial hall for the founder of the Mahikari organisation is like no other memorial I've seen. The last room is awe inspiring!
  • I was there in 2009. It is wonderful!!!
  • You could enjoy my picture so vacant. Its magnificent buildings and facilities will be overwhelmed. Able to see the van Gogh, Chagall, Renoir, Utrillo, so is satisfied.

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.
