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.
On the 2nd (Thu), take a stroll through Sanmachi Suji, admire the striking features of Takayama Jinya, then learn more about the world around you at Hida Minzoka Mura Folk Village (Hida no Sato), and finally appreciate the extensive heritage of The Historic Villages of Shirakawa-go Gassho Style Houses. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: take in panoramic vistas at Tenshukakau Observatory, take an in-depth tour of Shirakawago Gassho Zukuri Minkaen, then explore the world behind art at Hida Takayama Museum of Art, then see the interesting displays at Takayama Festival Floats Exhibition Hall, and finally indulge your senses at some of the top wineries in the area.
