Really nice view and a gorgeous little cafe. Do the walking track as it is great, relax here and enjoy the view and the kilamenjaro beans.

We found this lovely place by accident while trying to hide from the sudden rain storm. We were surprised with good food, clear english menu and very charming and frendly athmosphere. Rasa and Gintautas from Lithuania :-)

We stumbled upon this wonderful mountaintop cafe by accident and are so glad we did. Fantastic place with a wonderfully warm and welcoming hostess. The ambiance is unique, graced with a serene and beautiful view of Takayama and the surrounding mountains. The food was scrumptious, beer cold, and ambiance charming. Great spot for a relaxing sunset, letting the sun unwind... More

The coffee shop is at the top of the knoll. Very cozy ambience with some soft music playing at the backgroud. You can have a great view of the city here. I had hamburger curry rice - simple and tasty. A pleasant surprise.

We walked 12-15 minutes up from the historic part of Takayama to this very, very simple place. It feels a bit like a small ski hut, a bit like someone's cluttered living room. The proprietress/cook/waitress is nice so I don't want to come down too hard on the place. If my thirteen year old son had made the meal (and... More

Yummy pizza! Go for the risotto pizza and you won't be sorry. Great place to relax and grab some food and drinks. The owner is the friendliest person you'll meet!

We rode our bikes up the hill and found this little gem! A great atmosphere and the food was amazing... The owner was so friendly and welcoming, we could have spent all afternoon up there.

We had a lovely lunch at Yosimi's caffee, a 5 min bike ride from the center if Takayama. The view is amazing and the hospitality lovely. Very very recommended if you'd like to take a little brake from the Takayama main tourist attractions. Andy&Liran

After a long trip alone in the town or the forest, I was dying. I wanted good food since two hours and started having alucinations! Then, on the top of the hill, a little house, very pretty that never stop preparing food until 10:30pm. The woman was amazing, a good english a sense of humor and open minded. I directly... More

We visited this little cafe because we were staying near it. It is on top of the hillside, looking out over the town, and well worth the walk up the hill to eat here. The food is simple but delicious, with great prices to match. The interior is decorated in an eclectic style, the music playing were old favourites. We... More

Our cafe is located right next to the Ayuzaki Castle Ruins Park in the middle of Kitayama Walking Course.
There are lots of attractive view which is associated with the season.
You can get a map at Takayama Tourist Infomation in front of Takayama Station.
Have a great journey!
