Your journey to the old ages starts from learning about the foundation and history of Takayama with a local story and legend. You'll discover how people and samurai used to live in Takayama leisurely pedaling through the old town.

Your guide will show you not only the history but also the local places such as nightlife for locals, amazing Japanese Alps/city view over the town, hidden café, where you would never know without a guide.

You also stop for tasting local foods and talking with friendly locals in the Miyagawa morning market.
