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.

[Main Part]

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.

The steak was very tender and delicious.

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 🙂
