Takayama Station

Takayama City is located in northern Gifu, one of the few fully inland prefectures in Japan with no seacoast. Instead of rich oceanside beaches, however, the mountains roll through the prefecture, accompanied by rushing rivers and deep valleys filled with dense foliage.

Takayama lies in the heart of these Japanese Alps, and while it is technically dubbed a city, it seems like a separate world compared to the major metropolitan areas of Tokyo, Osaka, and even Kyoto. In fact, the name Takayama translates to “tall mountain,” indicating its full embrace of its natural surroundings.

Takayama Station is located a short distance from central Hida Takayama. The original station opened in 1934. It is a relatively small station, with only 3 platforms. Despite its size, it had its most recent renovation in 2016, outfitted with a more sleek and contemporary design with a primarily glass and wooden construction that contrasts the modest surroundings while simultaneously incorporating inspiration from the nature-rich geography of the area. 

Takayama Station is primarily operated by JR Central, with a number of local and express train lines passing through it. Aside from trains, Nouhi Express buses will arrive and depart from the facility next to the station.
