We get together at JR Takayama station in the morning, then we go to the morning market and visit Jinya, the only government place exciting from Edo period in Japan. Then, we go to Nakahashi bridge, a famous instagram spot and take some pics there. After that, we go to the old town area and visit some sake breweries. Next, we visit another bigger morning market next to the river. At the end, we will visit Yatai museum where the massive festival floats are stored and go to Sakurayama Hachiman shrine.
It is the perfect course to cover the places you should visit in Takayama!

It is not mandatory to enter but I strongly recommend you to check the festival floats inside since they are supposed to be one of the most beautiful floats in Japan!
We had such a fun time with Taka exploring Takayama. He was knowledgeable, attentive, and just a great person to be around. He introduced us to local food and the Takayama Matsuri (even though we weren't there for the actual festival) and showed us so many things there are to love about the city. We definitely want to come back in the future.
Thank you for joining the tour!
Nice and gentle chap that brings us round to where we like to go.
Thank you for joining the tour! I hope to see you again someday.
This tour of Takayama with Takahiro is a highlight reel. You do get to see the top sights of the city, but if you want something in depth, book a full day tour! We chose not to due to limited time and wanting to visit Shirakawago that afternoon. That being said, we do feel like we still got to see the real Takayama. Takahiro took us to his favorite place for gohei-mochi, a local specialty, and made us feel very welcome and not rushed. Thank you so much for a lovely tour!
Taka was punctual and very polite. He had planned our day well to take in the tourist spots but also quieter places with the lovely walk through the temple area! We thoroughly enjoyed Takayama!
