A “little Kyoto” surrounded by towering mountains

Located in beautiful natural surroundings with the Japan Alps as a backdrop, Hida-Takayama developed its own distinctive culture over the centuries. With much of the old town preserved unchanged since 400 years ago, it is known as a “little Kyoto”. This unique city offers many splendid after-convention attractions, including the gassho-zukuri thatched-roof houses of nearby Shirakawa Village, a World Heritage site. Hida-Takayama is also famed for its shops selling antiques and interesting old tools and equipment, its lively morning markets and lovely old onsen hot spring inns. The Michelin guidebook gives this city a three-star ranking.
