TAKAYAMA

Located deep within the mountains of central Japan, Takayama is famous for the excellent preservation and charm of its Edo period historical center, known as Sanno-machi. The distinctive black facades of buildings that line the narrow streets are full of fascinating museums, craft shops, restaurants, gourmet food and drink, and other attractions that make this town a must see while in Japan.

Takayama is equally well-known for its biannual matsuri (festival) during which the town's intricately crafted, gilded floats are paraded and displayed. It's a stunning display of Takayama's history and the beauty and skill of Japanese craftsmanship. The festival is regarded as one of the most beautiful in Japan and held twice yearly, in spring and in autumn.

For the meat lovers, Takayama will delight you with its famous Hida beef, regarded as some of the best beef in Japan and the entire world! There are numerous restaurants dedicated to Hida beef (and to expanding your waist line), so make sure you indulge while in town!
