Sight-seeing Area

Hida Takayama Old Townscape is said to be a town where the original landscape of Japan remains, as the streets from the Edo period still remain, and the charming town houses and noren (curtains) of old stores continue to be seen. It is a popular tourist attraction in Hida. You can feel the history and culture of the town as you walk through the rows of charming town houses with latticework. You can also enjoy strolling around the town, as there are many traditional Japanese sake breweries, renovated cafes, and general stores.

There are also many gourmet stores where you can take out food, such as buns made with Hida beef and nigiri. The area is also famous for its sake breweries, which are decorated with "sakabayashi," balls made of cedar leaves. If you like to drink, you should definitely stop by.

Walking around the town is recommended, but if you take a rickshaw, you can also learn about the various charms of Takayama from the rickshaw driver.
The town is cool in summer, and in winter, you can enjoy the beautiful snow-covered streets all year round.

    飛驒牛壽司好吃,五平餅和糯米團子也是鄉味十足。

  • Ying Hsia

    建議中午前去還能夠看到當地居民擺攤的宮川朝市。

  • LOVE曉婷

    老街巷弄依然存在,但是大多數的房子已經改成商店或吃東西的地方,很可惜味道不見了。

  • 王隆佑

    街景優美,尤其是下雪的時候!

  • 李桂勝

    是江戶時期日本建築保留完整度很高的地方。

  • 俞錦秀

    街道兩旁是漆黑的木造老屋~有濃濃的懷舊氛圍!

  • 秦辰楨

    老街上有許多的味增五平餅和飛驒牛串燒店,都可以試著品嚐看看。

  • Marcel Martin

    高山老街上的店家都在三百年以上,老街上建築物也都保持得很完整,也被米其林旅遊評選為三顆星景點,非常適合前來。

    我很喜歡逛傳統高山老街,有很多形形色色的東西可以買,唯一缺點是希望能夠改善公共廁所不足的問題。

    來到高山享受美食絕對不可錯過飛驒牛握壽司,就算排很長隊伍這也不能放棄,入口即化超級美味!
