Takayama is a peaceful, ancient city paved with cobblestoned streets and lined with exquisitely preserved historical structures. Tourists arrive to sample the history that is evident in the narrow streets, and the old residences of wealthy Edo period merchants who once dwelled here. But while visiting a new city, we often absorb details at eye-level and forget to consider a different perspective. The Higashiyama Walking Course provides you with an alternative view and form of entertainment to the city’s network of narrow streets, taking you to higher elevations. Explore the mountain’s many shrines and temples while enjoying the city from above, and just follow the mountain’s course.
