Hida Furukawa Town Walk (Private only)

WALK IN A TOWN WHERE THE PRESENT ECHOES THE PAST IN THE LIVES OF THE LOCAL PEOPLE

“Anyhow the landscape of Furukawa-cho has admirable elegance and dignity. Because it is not touristy, unvarnished behaviors and face expressions and even personality can be felt.” – Ryotaro Shiba

In his book, “Kaido wo Yuku (Walking along streets),” that is how renowned Japanese novelist Ryotaro Shiba describes the quiet wonders of Hida Furukawa, in which ancient Muromachi culture is still strongly felt. In this town, called locally, “the back parlor of Hida,” the residents continue on unembellished, their daily lives a proud tribute to a simpler time. Recently, Hida-Furukawa town is also well known for the animated movie ‘Your Name’ (2016).

Highlights

Begin your winding journey through Hida Furukawa at the picturesque Setogawa Canal/River, a stretch of aqua beauty where scores of koi can be seen, undulating their golden bodies as if to welcome you into another world.
