  • Miyagawa Morning Market
    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."
