Takayama

Hidden high up in the Japanese Alps, Takayama remained largely cut off from the rest of Japan for centuries, allowing the local culture to grow in relative isolation. The town's remote location influenced the look and character of its neighborhoods, with the 17th-century architecture of the old town area notably well preserved and displaying a mastery of carpentry for which the town has become famous. The surrounding hills hide a number of interesting old temples and shrines, with hikes up to nearby monuments serving as highlights of many Takayama tours. Plan my Japan trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
