Takayama is a castle town high up in the mountains of Gifu prefecture (4-5 hours from Tokyo), overflowing with traditional charm and busy streets waiting to be explored. Renowned for morning markets, sake and snow as well an amazing spring and autumn festivals, not to mention its proximity to onsen towns and the famous Shirakawago, you may well be wondering why you haven’t been already.

That is worth traveling a few hours from Tokyo to see! Looks like a blast and so down to earth too. I prefer to visit older towns myself as they are more humbling than the constant up and go of the city life. Everything about Takayama screams tradition. Love it!
