Created by Kanamori Nagachika (1524-1600) who loved Kyoto, the King made a Castle here with the hilly region developed to resemble the Higashiyama area. All of the attractions of these area come together to form the Higashiyama Walking Course. In the 17th century, the Kanamori family’s rule ended and the castle was destroyed. Today its ruins are seen near the Shiroyama Park while other buildings are still functional. Take a walk along the course to see the Takayama Jinya, Hokkeji Temple and bell tower in Unryuji Temple among other buildings.

  • 江戸時代初期、当時の領主が京都に倣い高山盆地の東側に寺院を集めました。標高が高く見晴らしも良いため、後に東山遊歩道が整備されました。途中にはユースホステルもあるので安く宿泊することができ、お寺の座禅など非日常的な体験ができます。

  • 多くの寺院と昔からある旅館があり、高山では空町と言います。 外国の方々が多く散策されています。 高山景観地区であり、高山昔ながらの日本が残っています。 路地も広くなく、落ち着いています。
