Takayama ©
Hidden high up in the Japanese Alps, Takayama remained largely cut off from the rest of Japan for centuries, allowing the local culture to grow in relative isolation.
Start off your visit on the 22nd (Fri): get answers to all your questions at Takayama City Hall and then examine the collection at Takayama Festival Floats Exhibition Hall. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: appreciate the extensive heritage of The Historic Villages of Shirakawa-go Gassho Style Houses, make a trip to Hida Minzoka Mura Folk Village (Hida no Sato), then admire the striking features of Takayama Jinya, and finally wander the streets of Sanmachi Suji.
