|Travel to Hida Takayama, Japan, 2006|
Takayama has a history shaped by isolation. In earlier times, Takayama was cut off from the outside world by deep winter snows. (picture is taken in April) Another name for Takayama is Japanese Alps. Takayama remaines remote due to it's location. Change came slowly, and that allowed Takayama to develop and maintain a unique personality and way of life. Takayama was the first place where we had the traditional kaiseki dinner at ryokan. The specialty of the area is Hido beef, which is similar in quality and prices of Kobe beef.
