The small streets of Sanmachi Suji give Takayama an authentic Edo period feel. This quaint historical district is the ideal place to take a stroll, enjoy the atmosphere and sample some local sake.

Stop At: Yoshijima Heritage House

Takayama was famous for its skilled carpenters during the Edo period and this building is a great example of such carpentry. Built in Meiji 41 (1908). The building has been a Sake brewery for over a century, a huge sakabayashi (sign of a shop dealing in sake, made of Japanese ceder leaves) is hung under the eaves. The beauty of the carpentry is shown in the wooden pillars and panel doors, as well as in the staircase centered on the main pillar of the house and composed of beams (horizontal pillars) and posts (pillars perpendicular to the beams), with sunlight from the top window entering the house, and in the wooden pillars and panel doors.

Stop At: Sakurayama Hachimangu Shrine

The Sakurayama Hachimangu Shrine is a Shinto shrine in Takayama City, Gifu Prefecture that is dedicated to the tutelary deity of the area. According to tradition, the origins of the Shrine date back to the reign of the Emperor Nintoku, when Prince Naniwa-neko Takefurukuma no Mikoto, who had come to the area to subjugate an evil monster, prayed for victory at this site. The Shrine is closely associated with the Autumn Festival that is one of the two Takayama Matsuri (Takayama Festivals), the other being the Spring Festival that is associated with the Hie Shrine; the Takayama Matsuri has been designated as a National Important Intangible Folk Cultural Property. Some of the “Yatai” (decorated floats) used in the Takayama Matsuri procession are on display in the Takayama Festival Floats

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Higashiyama Walking Course

The Higashiyama Walking Course (東山遊歩道, Higashiyama Yūhodō) is a pleasant walking route through Takayama's temple town (Teramachi), the city's rural "suburbs" and Shiroyama Park, a wooded hill and former site of Takayama Castle. Along the 3.5 kilometer long course, you will pass more than a dozen common temples and shrines, the ruins of Takayama's former castle and ordinary scenes of a rural Japanese town. While the Higashiyama Walking Course is by no means a stunning sightseeing experience, it offers a pleasant way to spend one or two hours and get to know Takayama's calmer side.
