Overview

This half day tour is a walking tour.I will take you at least 3 places out of 4 places in the highlights, such as Takayama Jinya, Sanmachi, Miyagawa morning market and Takayama Festival Floats Exhibition Hall. It is really depends on how long you would like to spend at each place.

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.

“ Great English speaking tourguide ”

Good English language. Takayama not much to see. We had half a day. We discussed what time to start and informed that the market Area is not of or interest. On the day she told us that we had to wait before the first attraction would open, so we Will spent first half our at the market. But she really adapters the rest of the tour to our whishes.

MAYUMI:

Hello, Priscilla Thank you for writing a review of the tour. Takayama is located in a remote area but its layout is very compact. Visitors can walk here and there and discover a true life which is not written in a guidebook. Please come back here again in a different season ! I am sure you will see a lot of new things.
