Market sights in Takayama
- Sort by:
Asa-ichi (morning markets) take place every morning from 7am to noon, starting an hour earlier from April to October. The Jinya-mae Morning Market (陣屋前朝市) is in front of Takayama-jinya; the Miya-gawa Morning Market (宮川朝市) is larger, situated along the east bank of the Miya-gawa, between Kaji-bashi and Yayoi-bashi. The markets provide a pleasant way to start the day, with a stroll past rugged farm-folk at their vegetable stands and stalls selling crafts of wood or fabric, pickles, souvenirs and that all-important steaming cuppa joe (or beer or sake for the hearty).
