Must visit place if you visit Japan..... Takayama!!! (J-hoppers)

Since I came back to Japan after a absent of maybe 12years....(this does not include short visits and involving work...) I promised my self a domestic trip a month which is not very hard to organize if you are working for J-hoppers/Hana Hostel!!!
So I decided to visit all J-hoppers and Hana Hostel to start with and the month of May, I visited Takayama/Shirakawago.
Many people do not give much attention to Takayama/Shirakawago because, International Flight does not land (well no airport for that matter!), not busy city where you can do lots of Shopping, a little bit out of the way......or simply don't know the existence...
I must admit that Takayama is the one of must visit place in Japan!
The old town is fantastic to walk around and does not take much time but at the same time, you can spend hours visiting such as Yoshijima house (Important property), very close to Takayama Station and you can feel the great old Japan but different from Kyoto or Nara.

People of Takayama so warm that you feel really welcomed!
I met a few people along the way and all of them were so warm and interesting people!
