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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Shirakawa-mura (Wada House, Shirakawago Shiroyama Observatory Deck, & more). Next up on the itinerary: ponder the world of politics at Takayama Jinya, take a stroll through Sanmachi Suji, admire the landmark architecture of Takayama City Hall, and see the interesting displays at Hida Minzoka Mura Folk Village (Hida no Sato).
