JAPAN TRAVEL : WELL PRESERVED OLD TOWN AT TAKAYAMA THE SHOGUN CITY

From Shirakawago, I move on by bus for one hour journey to Takayama where I will take train back to Kanazawa. It was around 2pm and still have time left for me to explore this by the way city of Takayama. Not much that I know about this City in Japan's Gifu Prefecture. It was unplanned exploration.

Its operating hours start around 8:00am and end around 5:00pm. There are around 170 stores including sores sell the fresh fish and seafood caught from the Sea of Japan. I seriously go crazy greedy walking around this market. So much food to samp
