The building in the area is still well preserved like the olden days of Japan. A nice place to walk around to take pictures and enjoyed some snacks and shopping.
Beautiful small streets and canals shops and restaurants with many crafts and suvenirs to see touch taste and smell. very unique experience.
Drove 3 hours from Nagoya to Takayama due to distance and traffic; however, it was all worth it with the sights, smells and sounds. The streets were bustling with human traffic entering these well preserved old houses and stores, peddling their food and wares. There were stores selling the ever succulent Hida Beef lightly seared with touch of sweet sauce... More
Every season brings its own charms to this area of Takayama. There are sake breweries, identified by the brown ball [straw like] ball over the door, wonderful incense sellers, food, crafts and even shopping bags. But the real treat is the old homes. Their design and construction is truly astonishing. Definitely worth wandering through any time of the year or... More
This town and Tsumago are probably my favorite old towns in Japan. The shops have quality goods and the food is excellent. Weekends are a bit crowded. Love the morning markets and viewing the koi in the river. Riding bikes through the town is the best way to get around. We also visited the temples by bike.
This is a fascinating and very busy set of 3 blocks that is made up entirely of traditional shops selling trinkets, crafts, locally brewed sake, and tasty food choices. Definitely a must see when visiting Takayama. They have a farmer’s market some mornings and that adds something to the experience although I found the stores more interesting as a tourist.... More
Like all the rest of this nice small city, this area has charmed me and my husband. Quiet and peaceful as it should have been in the past. We suggest to walk here at dusk, it is really magic.
This beautiful row of shops is indeed, as many say, built for tourists. The time I went must be an off season or some thing as I didn't encounter very many people even though there were definitely a number of tourists. Note: during winter, between certain dates at the end of January and February, there is something known as the... More
I love the city of Takayama especially this Sanmachi Suji. Sanmachi Suji is basically 3 small streets paralel to each other. These streets consists of old buildings which are still maintained very well by the owner. This area is a world heritage. Those buildings are used as shops or home industries since many previous generations. I took a rickshaw ride... More
Great place to wander around, check out local crafts and try some sake. It was raining but that didn't deter us! The traditional buildings are quaint and lovely. Although the area was a bit touristy, I really enjoyed it. Had some FANTASTIC Hida beef 'sashimi' at one of the stalls, and the bf loved the Japanese-style 'marshmallows' and gultinous rice... More
