Japan - Getting to know Takayama

‘Takayama’ means ‘tall mountain’, and this charming old city is so named for its location high in the Japanese Alps - an area encompassing several mountain ranges in north-west Honshu. This puts Takayama firmly on the must-visit lists of hill-walkers, but it’s also a huge treat for those who love to feast their eyes on mountain scenery and traditional wooden architecture.
