Hidden high up in the Japanese Alps, Takayama remained largely cut off from the rest of Japan for centuries, allowing the local culture to grow in relative isolation.
Get out of town with these interesting Takayama side-trips: Shirakawa-mura (The Historic Villages of Shirakawa-go Gassho Style Houses, Shirakawago Gassho Zukuri Minkaen, &more). There's lots more to do: wander the streets of Sanmachi Suji, get outside with Fukuchi Kabe no Aodaru, take an in-depth tour of Hida Folk Archeological Museum (Hida Minzoku Kokokan), and savor the flavors at Food & Drink.
