  • The old tradition, which is well preserved, is a good stroll on the ancient streets of the mountains, and many are ancient shops. There are many special things, there are cows, there is wine. Most of the shops are welcoming visitors, and this time it was fun to have a cup of wine.

  • Takayama's old town are lined with souvenir shops and takeout shop, such as Aburi sushi and is suitable for walking. Not long enough, it's easy.

  • It is fun though there is old town, hold the Mitarashi dango, Hida beef, Hida beef croquette, specialty food to eating good food. Personally, Hida beef croquette and Hida beef cutlet are cheap and delicious. There is also restaurant you can sample the many souvenir shops, so I this I bought at the souvenir shop on the street.

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.
