  • Nice scenery with a small museum nearby.. not too bad but look similar to other Japanese shrines..
  • Worth looking. There's a float exposition.
  • I do love this place. Beautiful and peaceful 🤗 not too far from Takayama Jinya. Worth to go.
  • Well worth a visit for its unpretentious appearance and nice setting in the woods.
  • It's worth looking at and it's very close to the festival float exhibition hall.

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.
