Introducing Hida District
Visitors flock to this ancient mountainous region for its onsen ryokan, the World Heritage villages of Ogimachi and Ainokura, and its centrepiece, Takayama, one of Japan's most likeable cities. Hida's signature architectural style is the thatch-roofed gasshō-zukuri, while its culinary fame rests in Hida-gyū (Hida beef), hoba-miso (sweet miso paste grilled at the table on a magnolia leaf) and soba.
