Nestled in the heights of the Japanese Alps, Takayama occupies a lovely realm where tradition and heritage meet dramatic mountain landscapes. Wander down atmospheric alleys lined with traditional merchant houses, visit the local tofu maker, and indulge in beautifully presented kaiseki meals. Be completely immersed in Japanese culture with an unforgettable stay at a mountain ryokan (traditional Japanese inn), where the yukata and futon await you after a soothing dip in a steaming-hot onsen. A private Takayama tour offers a rustic mountain escape with culture to spare. Check out our sample itineraries and get invaluable insights to start planning your rustic getaway in Takayama.

What’s Special about Takayama?

Surrounded by beautiful mountains and accessible by scenic trains from Kyoto and Tokyo, Takayama is the ideal setting to explore centuries of Japanese history. A tailor-made tour of Takayama will bring you a little closer to the cultural pulse of Japan.



CHARACTER

Nobody can accuse Takayama of not having character. On a private Takayama tour, you’ll get well acquainted with the unique lifestyles, customs and cuisine of this once-remote mountain enclave.



CLIMATE

Although Takayama enjoys the distinct characters of all four seasons, the average temperature in Takayama is quite mild. Winters here are not so extreme, although the summers can get hot and humid.



ENTERTAINMENT

Indulge in a tipple of the region’s finest sake or treat yourself to an unforgettable meal of Hida beef sushi. When you’re sated, return to your ryokan and enjoy one of Japan’s oldest pastimes: soaking in a private onsen.



CULTURE

Ramble through Takayama’s remarkably well-preserved old town and meander through the raucous Miyagawa Morning Market. Enjoy a hands-on cultural experience sampling local brews at a centuries-old sake brewery.



LANGUAGE

While Japanese is the predominant language spoken in Japan, your private, English-speaking guides will help you navigate your stay in Takayama with ease.



HISTORY

Relatively cut off from the rest of Japan, Takayama started out as a high-altitude village, gradually growing into a castle town. Over a period of 300 years, it evolved its own culture, which draws many tourists today.
