I visited Hida-Takayama with my family in this summer. I've heard from people in my cooking class how beautiful traditional city and food is amazing. So Hida had been my wishing visiting list for years. Finally I could visit there as my family trip and indeed, that was beautiful city!
We first visited a small town named Furukawa-machi in Gifu pref. The town is now known for one of the main location in Japanese anime movie " Your name". The main cast lives this small town.
There is clean stream around the town and carps swill slowly in the water. Although it was hot and humid day the water looks cool down the town.
There are some authentic Japanese candle shops around Hida area. I bought this candle holder for our living room.
The accommodation we stayed was amazing. The building is elegant, the service is super and food was ultimate!
The ryokan name "Hidatei Hanaohgi".
There are many foreign visitors, I believe the service is English friendly.
Dinner was served as kaiseki style.
The chef came from Kyoto, so the food was Kyoto kaiseki influenced.
We enjoyed Hida beef and every dishes at dinner.
We, Japanese women say staying ryokan is the most appreciate experience. Since we can take huge public bath, dinner is served at relaxed room. We don't need to think about wash and clean the dishes, moreover no worry about clean the dishes and the breakfast for next morning.
I really enjoyed staying beautiful ryokan there at Takayama.
