What To Expect
Japan is not all big cities and temples. There are many interesting places in central Japan to explore.
Takayama, referred to as "Little Kyoto," has worked very hard to maintain its history and culture through the preservation of its old structures. It offers a relaxing environment in which to walk around. The thatched roof local village of Shirakawa-go has earned its place as a World Heritage site.
