Lots of tourists (mostly Japanese) but definitely worth it. The old houses still look very good. Everything is at walking distance, but a bike ride through town is nice too. The morning market was very nice: godo food and a nice atmosphere.

Short walk filled with stores and heritage houses. I wouldn't travel out of my way to it. But worth the visit if you are in Takayama

There is one main street that is all souvenir shops. That street and the one behind it are dotted with sake breweries. There isn't a whole lot to do in the town so the 4 rating is more about the quality of the houses and...More

There were quite a number of tourists there so the places for pictures a little crowded. There are also a ton of shops and a couple of those sells Hida beef.

Takayama's old town is a collection of three narrow lanes that has been beautifully preserved with many buildings & houses dating from the Edo Period (1600-1868), when the city thrived as a wealthy town of merchants.

There are many shops in here, from souvenir shops, sake shops, to food stalls, but mostly food stalls there sell Hida beef. It was crowded but it was still convenient. There was also a bridge from which you can take photos.

We’ve seen this amazing place in the rain, on a sunny day as well as in the last rays during sunset: every time it looked absolutely gorgeous! It’s like a time travel in Edo epoch, especially in the evening when there is almost nobody around....More
