Spirit

Takayama is a small city at the base of the Japanese Alps where many aspects of traditional Japan still remain. The city’s well-known Old Town has beautiful architecture, old wooden houses, crafts, shops, delicious food and local sake. This region is also commonly referred to as Hida Takayama, and its famous “Hida beef” is best right here in Takayama.

Woodworking has flourished in Takayama thanks to its skilled carpenters, and the local lacquerware is also very high quality. The Takayama Festival, held in spring and fall, is considered one of Japan’s best. Shirakawa-go, Gokayama, The Alpine Route in Kurobe, Hirayu Onsen, Kanazawa city and Nagoya are all also within a just a few hours of Takayama.
