Morning Markets

The morning market in Takayama is said to have originated from markets in the Edo Period (1603- 1868), dealing in mulberry leaves, rice, and flowers. It also began to deal in vegetables in the Meiji Era. It takes place at two locations: One is held in front of the Takayama Jinya, and the other is held by the Miya River. The stalls sell vegetables, fruit, pickles and Japanese crafts.

Location: Along the Miya River at Shimo-sanno-machi (Miya-gawa Morning Market), and in front of Takayama Jinya (Jinya Mae Morning Market); Takayama City
