Let’s visit Hida Takayama where there are wonderful people, townscapes and foods.


Hida Takayama, familiar as a sacred place for TV animation “Hyouka”, has become famous as a sacred place of “Your Name.” now. However, those who comes there for “Your Name.” can’t understand the charm of Hida Takayama alone. Because the way of Seichi junrei of “Hyouka” can satisfy you, I think that you can enjoy more by visiting Hida Takayama after reading this article and watching “Hyouka”.

Time and expanses for Seichi junrei

Two days from  we did Seichi junrei of “Hyouka”.

We went to Takayama from Tokyo with a Shinkansen and Limited Express Wide View Hida.

The cost of this time was 27,800 yen including transportation and accommodation expenses. I think this place is very cheap.

By the schedule, we departed Tokyo station at 6:18, changed at Nagoya station at 7:45, arrived at Takayama station at 10:02. The total traveling time took about 3 hours and 30 minutes on one way. However, we got off at Hida Ichinomiya station in front of Takayama station in order to participate in Living Hina Festival.

There is place you absolutelyhave to go when you are going to do Seichi junrei. That is a cafe “Katsute”. “Katsute” in the story is “Hihumi”. The sign of this shop is the same as what is in the story by the shop’s good will.

For the time being as Seichi junrei, this is the end, but there were other interesting things in fact. It is such a wonderful place that I want to go as a fan of “Hyouka” once a month. In addition, there was a calm feeling that can’t be expressed by words. It is the best place because it supports “Hyouka” throughout the area as a town habitat. Takayama is also famous as a sightseeing spot, so please try traveling as Seichi jenrei of “Hyouka”.
