  • Karakuri dedication has just been the grounds of Hachiman-gu shrine was thronged with people. Approach were made also stalls numb right now, here was someone filled. You could see the contraption votive somehow broke into the grounds, while far away. I was lucky and made 1 times each morning and afternoon. People are much too much, was not at the Ministry of worship.

  • 2 steps from the river and past the Tori you discover the magnificent Temple in the middle of the trees, the forest behind.

  • Not only the beautiful shrine, but also a very beautiful maple in front of it, best time to see on end of October.
  • Sakurayama Hachiman is the oldest shrine in Takayama. The buildings have an attractive unpainted wood design and is surrounded by large trees. Sakurayama Hachiman sponsors the Takayama Autumn Festival in October, a festival that features large floats covered in lanterns. At festival time, up to 1 million people visit the shrine.
  • Not far from the center of town, this temple is worth a visit.
  • Extremely beautify and serene, best time to visit is sunset.
  • Nice scenery with a small museum nearby.. not too bad but look similar to other Japanese shrines..

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.
