The old centre of Hida town is an underrated and less popular attraction than many similar places in this region, and hence seems less visited than other heritage sites. There are relatively few tourist shops, restaurants or commercial operations along the old streets, which are...More

I was in Hida Furukawa on a rainy day because of the animation/ cartoon 'Kime no namae wa'. Walked around the town for a little bit and wish to spend more time in Furukawa in my next visit.

We spend 1/2 a day in Hida Fukuwara, a beautiful quiet town north of Takayama. The serene canals that run through the middle of town gives it a very calm feeling. We spend some time at the Yatai museum which added flavour and depth to...More
