Walk in a town where the present echoes the past in the lives of the local people!
Set in a beautiful valley encircled by tree-lined hills, Hida-Furukawa has maintained the traditional small town feel of rural Japan. In this town, called locally, “the back parlor of Hida,” the residents continue on unembellished, their daily lives a proud tribute to a simpler time.
Day 1 Takayama
14:00 pm: Meet the guide at Hida-Furukawa Desk.
Begin your winding journey through Hida Furukawa at the picturesque Setogawa Canal/River, a stretch of aqua beauty where scores of koi can be seen, undulating their golden bodies as if to welcome you into another world.
Highlights include impressive temples, sake breweries, the Setogawa canal full of giant carp in the warmer months and the museum devoted to Furukawa’s pride and joy, its festival.
There is no better place to experience the slow-paced rhythms of traditional Japanese rural life!
