Featured on Select Takayama Festival Japan Tours.
The Takayama Morning Markets are a staple in the community to enjoy fresh produce at great prices. The morning market is very similar to the American concept of a Farmer's Market. There are two morning marketers in Takayama; the one in front of Takayama Shrine and another along the Miyagawa River. The morning market originates from the early Edo era when the mulberry tree market was a popular occurrence in Takayama. At the morning market, you can find fresh, local vegetables, seasonal fruits, mountain vegetables, and other delicacies from Takayama. There's always something to try at the market thanks to the seasonal variety of ingredients available. The markets are open every day from early morning until noon year-round. In addition to fresh food, the market is a great place to pick up souvenirs while exploring the Gifu Prefecture.
The morning market often draws crowds of locals and tourists alike. Locals can enjoy great products at an affordable price, while tourists can expect to find excellent souvenirs for friends back home. Vendors are lined up with samples and fresh produce to enjoy, including Takayama specialties to enjoy during your tour like Gohei Mochi or delicious nikuman. Given the popularity of Hida Beef in the Gifu prefecture, Japan Deluxe Tours highly recommends trying a steaming nikuman bun while shopping along the morning market.
Come by the market to sample fresh fruit or just to enjoy the mountain air during our line of Takayama Hidden Village Japan Tours or Takayama Festival Japan tour packages. Both packages are offered in Spring and Autumn, perfect to enjoy the fresh harvest of Takayama's seasonal flavors!
