Hida Takayama is full of places to see, but is located in an area that is difficult to access. At least 6~7 hours are required to access Takayama from either Narita International Airport or Tokyo International Airport*1. The same is also true of Kansai International Airport*2. This takes up the time you were going to spend on your holiday and reduces the pleasure you will gain from the trip. However, accessing Takayama from Chubu Centrair International Airport takes only 4 hours. It is also beneficial from a financial point of view, since it costs only 4,200 yen*3. If you choose the right route, you can even arrive at Takayama on the same day!For further details regarding access
