Takayama is such a beautiful place. I actually had no prior knowledge about this place except that it is our jumping point to Shirakwa-go. I’m glad that we had time to roam around this place. No need for transport here. From the train/bus station, we took a map from the tourist information center and walked our way towards the old part of the city.
There are several bridges in Takayama and this is the green one.
We made our way to the Old Private Houses or Sanmachi.
The old houses were turned into quaint little shops.
We also found this little shrine, not sure what it is for or what tie means. :)
We went into a shop that sold honey. The honey was mixed in warm water. It had other flavors too. We tried the citrus honey one and it was really good. I wish I bought a bottle.
My cousin tried their ice cream with honey. It was good. I love the packaging and design.
We also went into this sake store.
It had one of those traditional Japanese hearths and It was a working one too. Such a nice place to keep warm and also take pictures. :P
We passed by a film crew..
Takayama is so pretty. We’re now on the red bridge and I took a few pictures of the river and the traditional houses on both sides.
