Takayama Old Town, Sanmachi Suji, Takayama Reviews

  • Nice simple little olsen in the middle of a city. Good enough if you don't need to have a nice view. Public path is small (4,5 persons) and may be closed before the advertised time at night. Staff speak little simple English. Room is comfy but no view. In general, it's acceptable if you do not want scenery and prefer a little privacy.

  • The miso here is freshly made, very authentic and very delicious. They have a little stove with a pot or two to sample on which is lovely especially after a walk out in the cold. Biscuits here are also good.

  • Worth seeing the old town area, but i5 is clearly geared for tourists and is packed with people buying souvenirs from very similar shops. Have a look, but there is better buying and eating, and a wide array of fascinating temples, shrines and beautiful walks all over a Takayama and it’s surrounds. Walk the trail that starts at the shrine on the old castle hill and takes you out the back of the town past numerous temples instead.

  • Beautiful old town but too crowded with tourist It have plenty of restaurant with famous beef - shabu shabu etc... The scenery around the river also beautifull

  • Takayama is so charming. Do visit the morning market at the river bank - they have great souvenirs for very good prices. If you get a chance, feed the koi in the river or get chopsticks with your name on them (also great souvenirs for friends and family).
