Experience Details
Start your day off with a Takayama food tour that dives into the history and culture of the city! You’ll start by strolling the streets of the old town district with your local English-speaking guide telling you about various landmarks on your way to two morning markets. Select landmarks include Takayama Jinya, one of the only remaining Edo Period provincial governor’s offices in Japan, and Yamazakura Shrine, where you can admire the handiwork of Takayama’s Takumi wood carvers. After your history walk, you’ll visit the morning markets of Takayama, the Hida-Takayama Miyagawa Morning Market, and the Jinya-Mae Morning Market. Both of these markets have their origins in the same event from around the year 1820! Here you can learn about the merchant culture and traditions of Takayama and grab some street food from the vendors. After the markets, it’s time for a hands-on workshop! Try baking a rice cracker in an open oven and watch it change in front of your eyes.
