Day 10: Miyagawa Morning Market, Takayama
We went off the beaten track for abit today. We made our own way visiting this beautiful small town called Gujo Hachiman, which is located about an hour and half away from Takayama by bus. (You need to make a reservation at least one day before and up to one month prior. If you cannot speak Japanese, get your receptionist at the hotel you stay to call the bus company and make a reservation for you. That's probably the most convenient way and they are normally more than happy to help). The return ticket for bus costs 2900yen/person.
Once we arrived at the bus station, we gave our booking number to the lady in the counter and proceed with the payment. She also recommended us to call taxi when we arrive at Gujo Hachiman bus stop.

This small town is very popular with their food replica workshop. Sample Kobo and Sample Village Iwasaki are the only two workshop places and amust do while you are here. And is where most restaurants all over Japan get their fake food display. The number 1 and the best quality of food display. They look exactly the same with the real thing.

This view, this river and the mountain was blown my mind, just lika a postcard. It was right next to food replica workshop, beside the tall wall and when I walk straight a little more I was stunned by this amazing view suddenly opened behind my eyes.
