  • Miyagawa Morning Market
    Shopping
    Gifu Pref. Takayamashi Shimosannomachi
    "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."

    Gifu Pref. Takayamashi Nishinoisshikimachi 1-73-5
    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!
