Takayama

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 Takayama's surroundings by going to Shirakawa-mura (Tenshukakau Observatory, Shirakawago Gassho Zukuri Minkaen, &more) and Ryokufu Resort Hida Nagareha (in Hida). There's lots more to do: admire the landmark architecture of Takayama Jinya, ski along the peaceful trails at HIda Funayama Snow Resort Arkopia, fly down the slopes at Honokidaira Ski Resort, and get a new perspective on nature at Hida Minzoka Mura Folk Village (Hida no Sato).

For where to stay, maps, photos, and other tourist information, read our Takayama trip maker website.

Singapore, Singapore to Takayama is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of car and ferry. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Singapore to Takayama due to the time zone difference. Prepare for cooler weather when traveling from Singapore in January: high temperatures in Takayama hover around °C and lows are around °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Fri) so you can drive to Gujo.
