Hida Beef Mabushi is another popular menu option here; this is a three-course meal that involves first eating the beef plain, then with a herbal sauce, and finally with a special stock.

    I can’t say that the food is terrible, because firstly, the food looks rather appetizing in the pictures. But mainly, it is because my family and I never had the chance to get a taste. Why? Because...

    This veteran Japanese confectionery has been making sweets with a nod to the seasons in Nakatsugawa since 1864. Their confections with domestic chestnut are especially famous, and their chestnut and mashed sweet potato kurikinton sold from autumn to winter is recommended. Carefully cooked chestnuts are added to the chunky sweet potatoes along with sugar, and then squeezed through a tea cloth. This leaves its natural pale-yellow color and the rich aroma of chestnuts that people love. Year-round sellers are also popular, including their “Ureshi-no-Kuri, made with large chestnuts prepared their own special way that maintains their fragrance and flavor.

    The Train Bleu bakery, which attaches great importance to ensuring that ordinary bread is made as delicious as possible every day, is very popular with local residents. On weekends and public holidays, Train Bleu can get so crowded that it has to issue numbered tickets to customers. Besides basic, everyday breads, Train Bleu also sells first-class Viennoiserie (pastries); one especially popular product features seasonal fruit with cream on a delicate croissant base. The bakery closes when it is sold out for the day, so it’s best to get there early. Train Bleu is located around 20-minute drive from the Takayama Interchange of the Chubu Jukan Expressway.

    SO GOOD! We waited outside for 15 minutes to get in but worth the wait! So flaky and delicious. Everything is about 300 yen or more. Make sure to get the strawberry tart with fresh cream!

    Located about a 10-minute walk from JR Takayama Station, this long-established store manufactures and sells traditional Hida handicrafts, sashiko (quilted clothes). Housed in a machiya (traditional wooden townhouse) on a quiet street along the Miya River, it has a space that spreads like a gallery. The “bobo kurumi,” carefully made piece by piece, is a cute sarubobo (monkey doll) made using cloth that can be bought only here. There are many small accessories that use traditional patterns in a contemporary style, and besides pouches and bags, there are also luncheon mats and tissue paper cases with beautiful designs. Even the same products have their own individuality, making it fun to search for your favorite one.

    This Japanese confectionery is a nine-minute walk from JR Takayama Station. Their popular Neko Manju are delicious and fun to look at. They offer five varieties modeled on the alley cats that gather in the lane behind the shop: tiger, Russian blue, black, white, and tortoise-shell patterned. The dough and bean paste vary with the cat, so it's fun to try them and compare. They also have what's said to be the ultimate Takayama autumn confection, kuri yose, made with chestnuts. Naturally sweet, they don't get heavy however many you eat. If you like sweets, you may find yourself eating the whole thing before you know it.

    Great tasting and looking japanese cakes and ice cream! Really friendly place and we recommend a visit.

    This Japanese candle shop is about five minutes on foot from the JR Takayama Main Line Hida Furukawa Station on Ichinomachi Street, which is sometimes used as a set for TV dramas. There are very few Japanese candle shops. Founded over 240 years ago, it’s said this is the only one that makes all their products by hand. The candles are perfect vegetable based, so they don’t give off much soot and maintain a flame well. They’re also used for the traditional event known as Santera Mairi, the Three Temple Pilgrimage. The candles make popular souvenirs, and you can see them being made at the store.

    One of less than 10 candle shops in all of Japan where traditional Japanese candles are hand made. The candles are vegan candles and are said to burn with less smoke and have a brighter light.

    "A long standing Japanese confectionary shop located a three-minute walk from the Yaotsu Town Hall. The shop continues to make confections according to secret recipes never taken off the premises and handed down parent to child. The shop's specialty kuri kinton is a popular and simple gem with a mildly sweet sugar taste and rich chestnut flavor. Because they are made with fresh picked chestnuts, they are a seasonal item only offered from late August through early April. The shop also carries an abundant variety of products offered year round, like ""Kuritamadare"" kuri kinton wrapped in gyuhi, and ""Kurimu Daifuku"" candied chopped chestnut kuri kinton mixed with fresh cream."

    "This market is held every morning on the roadside in Shimo-sanno-machi, Takayama City, along the Miya River. The market evolved out of a rice market, mulberry leaf market and flower market held in the area in the Edo period (1603-1868); by the middle part of the Meiji period (1868-1912), it had evolved into a ""Morning Market"" in which vegetables were laid out for sale. Today, a range of local specialty products-including vegetables such as Hida spring onions and waxy corn, which are traditional foods in the Hida region, as well as Mitarashi Dango rice-dumplings, which are marinated in soy sauce repeatedly before cooking, and which, unlike most Dango, are not sweet-can be found together crowded together. The Miyagawa Morning Market is ranked as one of the top three best morning markets in Japan, and has become one of Takayama City's major tourist attractions."
