What to Expect
Takayama is a friendly city with beautiful scenery and has a long rich history. When you visit Takayama Jinya or Sanmachi, you must feel as if you had been transported through time to the Edo period, about 300 years ago.
You can see sake breweries and merchants' houses with latticed bay windows standing in a row.
At Miyagawa morning market, about 60 shops and stalls (much less shops in winter )are open approximately 350 meters along Miyagawa river.
Festival Floats Exhibition Hall is a must for tourists who can't visit Takayama on the festival days.
There is a spring festival and an autumn festival in Takayama.
