akayama is considered as the absolute must-see sight in the Chubu region. Historical architecture is still found in the old town bringing to mind the old days of Japan. Takayama is surrounded by mountains, and snow covers the town during the winter. The Yama-guruma is the unique event of the Takayama Matsuri (Takayama Festival) held in spring and autumn.
It has attracted many people throughout its history. Takayama Ramen-noodles and Hida beef are also very popular local food, so make sure to work up an appetite for the lunch or dinner!
