Tenshukakau Observatory Shirakawa-mura
Awesome breathtaking view .. there are other photo taking spots near the area so just walk a little - less crowd and just as good a view .. but need to take the bus during winters from the bus terminal
When touring Shirakawa-go and Gokayama, a short stop at this observatory to enjoy its panoramic views of Gassho houses and beautiful landscape.

The view, the castle, the history, the shrines, the onsen hotel next to it, and the direct connections to / from Nagoya, Gifu and the airport -- definitely a must-go.

Higashiyama Walking Course Takayama
The Higashiyama Walking Course is a pleasant walking route through Takayama's temple town (Teramachi), the city's rural "suburbs" and Shiroyama Park, a wooded hill and former site of Takayama Castle.
After a while some of the shrines and temples seem to sort of blend in with each other, but you also come across some unexpected surprises with beautiful architecture and sights.
The Little World Museum of Man Inuyama 27.9 mi away
Sanmachi Suji Takayama

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.
