What travelers to Takayama are saying
The unique culture and fascinating past of lovely Takayama, Japan, makes for an exciting and authentic Japanese holiday, with several inviting Takayama hotels to make you feel at home. Situated amongst the majestic Japanese Alps, Takayama maintains much of its charming heritage thanks to centuries of isolation, with traditional steep-roofed wooden buildings and quaint streets in historic neighbourhoods. Sanmachi boasts an interesting variety of shops, museums, and even sake breweries. It's a great place to shop for some beautiful lacquer-ware or wood-block prints, or enjoy some tasty ramen noodles, for which the area is famous. Explore historical structures like the 17th century Takayama Jinya, a historic government building, or hike out to the beautiful Hirayuotaki Falls. Book your Takayama accommodation right away!

Experience traditional Japanese mountain village life at the Hida Folk Village, an open-air museum with 30 thatched-roof buildings recreating a traditional village. Many of the buildings host craft shops where you can see and even try a number of artisan activities. At the Takayama Festival Floats Exhibition Hall you will be impressed with the fabulous exhibit of colourful and elaborate 17th century parade floats from the exciting Autumn Festival. Finally, explore the natural wonder of the Hida Daishonyudo Cave; as you wander through this incredible limestone formation, you will admire the dazzlingly sculpted stalactites and stalagmites, artistically illuminated to emphasise their forms.
Fly to the Chubu Centrair International Airport in Nagoya, and then take the Wide View Hida train for a scenic 4-hour journey to Takayama. It's easy to get around town by walking, or if you prefer, rent a bicycle for leisurely riding.
