- History of an open-air morning market held before Jinya (manor house)
Ranked among Japan’s three greatest open-air morning markets
An open-air morning market held in Hida-Takayama is ranked among Japan’s three greatest open-air morning markets, the other two being those in Katsuura City, Chiba and Wajima City, Ishikawa. It is also included among Takayama’s three most popular tourist attractions (Takayama festival, Old-fashioned townscape, and Open-air morning market).
Situated relatively close, or only a 7-8 minute walk, from Takayama Station, it gathers quite many tourists and has become a symbolic feature indispensable to Hida-Takayama.
