Nestled at the base of the Japanese Alps, Takayama provides a relaxing contrast to the bustle of Tokyo or Kyoto. This small city is easily explored on foot and retains a traditional touch focused in its beautifully preserved old town. The cluster of charming streets which make up the old town are lined with beautifully preserved inns, tea houses and shops, many dating back to the Edo period (1603-1868). The city is also home to many sake breweries – Takayama’s sake is renowned for its quality due to purity of the local mountain water used in its production.
