This is a lovely little cafe with great views over Takayama. The coffee is great (the best I have had in Japan) and a vist to Ichii is a nice reward for the short walk up the hill. The views are good and the walk...More

The coffee shop is at the top of the knoll. Very cozy ambience with some soft music playing at the backgroud. You can have a great view of the city here. I had hamburger curry rice - simple and tasty. A pleasant surprise.

We walked 12-15 minutes up from the historic part of Takayama to this very, very simple place. It feels a bit like a small ski hut, a bit like someone's cluttered living room. The proprietress/cook/waitress is nice so I don't want to come down too...More

Yummy pizza! Go for the risotto pizza and you won't be sorry. Great place to relax and grab some food and drinks. The owner is the friendliest person you'll meet!

A small cozy cottage kissaten at the middle of Kitayama Walking Course. Ayuzaki Castle ruins is only 50m away(located on top of Kitayama Mountain). It's surrounded by Japanese traditional terraced fields on the side of hill slopes. You'll have a freshly brewed coffee with the view as it changes from season to season. A night view of Takayama downtown from our cottage is loved by local since we established. When the weather's good, you can see beautiful Japan Alps. When it’s rainy you may have chance to see a rainbow over the town. Enjoy the beautiful panorama view and the cute cottage ,we look forward to welcoming you soon. FYI : Ichii means yew tree.
