Located at the heart of the Japanese Alps, Takayama is a beautiful small town, home to elegant 17C architecture, galleries, and historic temples.

Takayama is a city located in Gifu Prefecture, Japan. Takayama was settled as far back as the Jomon period. The town and its culture, as they exist today, took shape at the end of the 16C, when the Kanamori clan built Takayama Castle. However, the high altitude and separation from other areas of Japan kept the area fairly isolated, allowing Takayama to develop its own culture over about a 300-year period. Its main attractions include the surrounding nature, shrines, museums, and architectural curios.
