Hida Takayama in Gifu Prefecture is one of the most famous tourist spots in Japan. As the area is known as “Little Kyoto” in Hida, there are lots of old townscapes and sightseeing posts. The food is also fantastic such as Hida Beef and fresh vegetables. There are lots of attractions in Hida Takayama.

I would like to introduce experiential plans to be a part of attractions of Hida Takayama.

Hida Cooking Class – ”Learn local food from local at local’s house”

Hida Cooking Class – ”Learn local food from local at local’s house”

Cook local cuisine and harvest vegetables! The class does not limit to cooking local cuisines but also teaches basic Japanese cooking experience such as taking dashi. Also, this is the only cooking class in Japan to have rural experiences as well; the class starts from harvesting vegetables from farms and rice fields, as well as pumping natural spring water.

Traditional lunch experience

Rice has always been the center of the history of Japanese food. Nowadays, most of the houses use rice cookers to cook rice, but we usually used “Kamado” before that. Cooking rice is profound. It is said that to cook delicious rice, you have to put strong heat. Therefore, the traditional “Kamado” cooked rice takes work, but it tends to be more delicious than the ones cooked in a rice cooker.

This plan is to experience cooking rice with Kamado and enjoy lunch (dinner is also available) at a traditional building Yoshiki No Sato, which is located in between Takayama City and Hida City. You get to enjoy delicious Kamado cooked rice and Hida Beef, which is as much famous as Kobe Beef and Matsuzaka Beef, at a guest room of old merchant’s house.
