Food and Culture Walk
- Half Day
Today's walk will begin at 9:30. Fall in love with charming Takayama on this guided walking tour. Situated high in the mountains, this once-isolated town has retained its own distinctive cultural traits which are best discovered in the old town.

Along with a local guide, hit the streets of the old town where Alpine architecture and traditional houses can be found at every turn. Learn about the history of the shops, each one having its own link to the city's history and culture. Browse the different products on offer to learn about the city's traditions.

A large part of Takayama's unique heritage is its food. While walking through the town and its market, stop at some of the most popular local shops to sample regional delicacies. Savour items such as miso, a Japanese paste made from soybeans, salt and rice, Takayama rice dumplings and homemade sweets. Learn how these items are made from locally-grown ingredients and using old family recipes. There is also a chance to taste sake produced in one of the town's breweries.

After this insightful - and tasty - walking tour of Takayama, return to the hotel or continue exploring the town independently.
