Le Midi Ramen Takayama

 

 

After walking around Takayama, we were really hungry. We went to the J Hoppers Takayama to pay for our Shirakawa-go tour. We asked the lady at the front desk if she could recommend a place for lunch. The group wanted something filling and affordable and she gave us a map and pointed at Le Midi. We passed by a Le Midi restaurant on the way there and it looked upscale so we were kinda wary but decided to check it out anyway.

Takayama is such a beautiful place. I actually had no prior knowledge about this place except that it is our jumping point to Shirakwa-go. I’m glad that we had time to roam around this place. No need for transport here. From the train/bus station, we took a map from the tourist information center and walked our way towards the old part of the city.

Bus from Nagoya to Takayama

Bus from Nagoya to Takayama


Takayama is a city in the Hida Region of Gifu Prefecture. We actually went this way to see Shirakawa-go but since there are only 2 tours for the day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. We decided to see the city while waiting for our afternoon tour. We left our hotel early in the morning to catch our bus at the Nagoya Station. Nagoy to Takayama takes approximately 2-3 hours. It costs 2980. You can also take the train which costs around 5510 yen for the express and it will take 138 minutes or 3310 yen for the local train with 4 transfers and it takes 3 hours and 30 minutes.
