Tranquility rules the day

As we pulled up into Takayama from our train, there is a sense of rejuvenation, peace and serenity that envelopes us. Situated in the Japan Alps, Takayama oozes tranquility, freshness and allows you to live life at your own pace.

Soaking up the sights

Takayama is small enough to walk around. It contains old streets and builbings that are remarkbly untouched by the passage of time. No wonder it's referred to as Little Kyoto with its shrines and old parts of town.

Up in the mountains

With such gorgeous scenery and fresh mountain air, Takayama is a place to get away from it all

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Leisurely pace, clean fresh air and friendly people
