Surrounded by the mountains of Gifu Prefecture, positioned in the center of Japan, Hida Takayama is known as “Little Kyoto”. It is a friendly city with beautiful seasonal sceneries and has a long and rich history.
Old Town, once developed as a merchant town built around the former castle town of the Edo period, is still prosperous today.
In spring and autumn, the city hosts the famous “Takayama Festival”, one of the three most beautiful festivals in Japan. Gorgeous parade floats pass by spectators, reminding them of classic landscapes of the past.
Hida Takayama is listed as a three star must–visit tourist site in “Michelin`s Voyager Pratique Japon” and “Michelin Guide Vert Japon”.
We are looking forward to you coming to Takayama in near future.
