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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Takayama: Hida (White-Walled Storehouse City and Seto, Enkoji Temple, & more) and Shirakawa-mura (The Historic Villages of Shirakawa-go Traditional Houses in the Gassho Style, Wada House, & more). There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of Takayama Jinya, examine the collection at Takayama Festival Floats Exhibition Hall, explore the world behind art at Hida Takayama Museum of Art, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Higashiyama Walking Course.
