  • This is a poorly sign posted walking course, you are basically walking through cemeteries with the occasional temple. Yes it does have sign posts, but it’s not clear where the pathway is.  more »
  • Takes you through a really gorgeous part of town. The signage was good but we lost track of where we were supposed to go multiple times. 100% would recommend if you're in Takayama for a day or two.  more »
