I really enjoyed walking through Sanmachi Suji. You will find some great little shops to walk into here- particularly specialising in wooden items (we got some lovely hand-crafted chopsticks). Make sure you bring the good camera for this place!

Such beautiful architecture, nice little shops and traditional food, a real taste of ols Japan. The main street and immediate surrounding have some nice spots for pictures just walk around to see them, the end of the main street where the Bridge is (facing the little mountain) was my favourite photo spot. Don't forget to try the food sold along... More

This is not my first experience coming here but still I found it very fun. The area covers many streets and each street has old houses which now turned into shops and restaurants. All shops offer excellent goods and tasty snacks. Love all snacks I bought from this place. One of the house has sake and liquor shop and we... More

Very old style architecture and a lovely walk down the street which I imagine is even better in the later afternoon when there are less tourists around. The street itself is mainly tourist shops or those aiming at that market but there are also a few areas for Sake tastings and jewellery etc. I really enjoyed taking a lazy stroll... More

Sanmachi Suji street makes you feel the traditional side of Japan, as you can find many old Japanese architecture houses with souvenir shops nearby. Also for food, you can buy hida beef bun, hida beef sushi, and many others! Takayama is a small old town but very beautiful, and Sanmachi Suji is one of my favorite area there.

Closed to the Nakabashi Bridge, Sanmachi area is the old street area where you can go for sake tasting, hida beef sushi (yes, they sell just the sushi only) and a whole variety of Japanese snacks.

Nothing wrong with this area. The architecture is of course old and atmospheric and well preserved but the hordes of tourists spoil it a bit. But there's a reason for that - it's worth seeing.
