Takayama Visit, Japan
After exploring the old streets and museums of Sanmachi District, head out on the trail around the many temples and shrines of Teramachi, before strolling through Shiroyama Park. You should also attempt to fit in a visit to the open-air museum of Hida Folk Village.
There are two rivers running through the town, and the larger of the two, the cherry tree-lined Miyagawa, has a daily morning market along the eastern bank close to the central bridge (Nakabashi), which is well worth a visit. Both the Miyagawa and the smaller Enakogawa make for a very pleasant stroll at any time of year, especially in spring when the sakura are in bloom.
Whilst Takayama is a small place, there is a lot of walking involved if you want to take a comprehensive look around.
