    The bridge links the more modern area of Takayama literally with its historic district. It is an ideal place for the photos. An icon in this city! The reddish orange color of the bridge contrasts beautifully with the view of the old houses of dark wood on the other side of the river.

    Pretty, but go early in the morning or late in the day to avoid the crowds. It's hard to admire a bridge when your buses are pouring across it.

    Simple landmark that's within walking distance of the morning market. The views are charming and there seems to be less tourists here compared to crowded places such as Kyoto.

    just a simple red bridge, kinda overhyped but must have been pretty if there was snow and no crowd

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.
