Takayama is famous for its apples and peaches.
Miso specialty stall
I love these stores because there is always a hugh pot of steaming miso soup ready for sampling. This store even have samples for Hoba miso, miso on magnolia leaves on top of a hot charcoal stove. Note the two leaves at the foreground.
Hoba miso is very famous from this region of Japan. The magnolia leave with miso is sometimes topped with leek, shitake mushroom and even chunks of Hida beef. So yummy it with a bowl of hot rice.
Another Takayama's pride is its wood craftsmanship.
Amazing paper craftsBig and small chillies stringed on padi stalks to dry.
Look at the edamame (young soy bean pods)! I could not resist and bought 3 bundles.
