The Old City Streets of Takayama

Often referred to as a "Little Kyoto", this part of town is by far the most popular amongst Takayama's numerous foreign visitors. Laid out still as it was in the days of the Edo period, the 150 year-old traditional architecture remains as it was. Traditional craftspeople, their shops and sake breweries fill the streets along with famous sweet shops and places to snack as you wind your way through town.
