These three streets in Kamimachi and Shimomachi originally developed as merchant quarters in the heart of the castle town. Together, they're called Old Town. Water flows beneath the eaves of houses with latticed bay windows, balls of cedar leaves called "sakebayashi" hang outside sake breweries, serving as signboards to identify them by, and the streets are lined with the large doors of traditional townhouses and the noren curtains of long-established stores.HP
This event started out as a market for things like rice, mulberries and flowers that began to develop in the Edo period. It started to be called Morning Market when farmers' wives began to sell vegetables at it in the mid-Meiji period. The market is held in two locations, one in a square in front of Jinya, and the other along the Miyagawa River. The wares include fresh vegetables, fruits, flowers, and other seasonal delights.HP
This red bridge spans the Miyagawa River as it runs through the center of the city. In mid-April, the cherry blossoms in full bloom and the red of the bridge delight everyone who sees them with their beautiful harmony. The bridge is lit up at night, creating a fantastic sight.HP
Takayama Jinya was one of the suburban residences of the Kanamori clan, who were the lords of Takayama Castle. It came under direct control of the Tokugawa Shogunate after the clan relocated to Kaminoyama (Yamagata Prefecture). Later on, it served as an office for local governors sent from Edo to administer the affairs of the Hida province. This office was called Takayama Jinya, and handled things like issuing proclamations and collecting annual tributes.HP
This hall has actual floats from the Takayama Festival on permanent display inside. The Takayama Festival is held in spring and fall. However, the shrines and areas where it take places and the floats used are completely different for each season. The floats date back to around 1718. With features such as karakuri puppets that display skillful movements and modoshiguruma wheels with special mechanisms, they're wonderful examples of fine craftsmanship.HP
