Takayama (Part 1)

Filed under: Chubu, Domestic, Trips — myyearinjapan @ 3:37 pm

Takayama (飛騨高山) is a city in Gifu prefecture, a little ways north of Nagoya, in the Hida region. It’s a popular tourist destination because it has a small neighborhood thats been preserved as it was during the Edo period. It also is surrounded by beautiful snow capped mountains in the winter and is known for it’s beef. (It may not be as popular as it’s rival, Kobe beef, but it’s well known in Japan and cheaper.) The following are some pictures I took when I went there in March.
