I traveled to Hida Takayama and Shirakawa-go for three days and two nights. This is my second visit to Hida Takayama and Shirakawa-go since I visited them for the first time in September 2014. In addition, I also went to Hida Furukawa, which is the filming locations of “Your name/Kimi no na wa”, a blockbuster Japanese anime film. In this article, I will write about Hida beef dinner and night walk in “Old Town” (Sanmachi) as part of Day 2.

After I checked in the hotel, I went out for dinner. Since Hida Takayama is famous for Hida beef, I decided to have it. There are lots of restaurants that serve Hida beef and I chose Kitchen Hida among them.
Hida Beef Steak at Kitchen Hida
Kitchen Hida has a 50 year history as a restaurant specializing in Hida Beef dishes.
In the restaurant.
Creamed corn soup.
I ordered Tenderloin Steak (100g, A5 rank) based on my policy of “quality over quantity”.
The steak was very tender and delicious.
Evening View around Sanmachi
After dinner, I walked around Sanmachi area.
“Old Town” Sanmachi.
Most of the shops were already closed or about to be closed.
This was a branch of a local bank.
The branch was opened just a year ago.
Around Kajibashi bridge.
A local shopping street.
There was a shrine along the street.
Sarubobo, the local mascot of Hida Takayama.
Now the sun completely went down. I will go around Sanmachi again.
Night View around Sanmachi
And “Old Town” Sanmachi.
It was very calm around here.
The final shot was Sarubobo.
Then, I returned to the hotel and the second day of Hida Takayama and Shirakawa-go trip was over.
That’s it for the article about Hida beef dinner and night walk in “Old Town” (Sanmachi) as part of Day 2.
Hida beef is one of the famous brand beef in Japan along with Matsuzaka beef and Kobe beef etc. So, you may want to try it when you have a chance to visit Hida Takayama 🙂
