I'll be passing through Takayama Japan in mid-March, arriving by train from Toyama, staying one or two nights, then moving on by train to Nagoya.
I assumed that everything was happening in the town itself, but when I looked for hotels, they all seem to be located in the mountains to the east. What's the story there? Is it worth staying in the mountains rather, given the great rates, and in March? And is there convenient affordable transport from the town up to the mountain accommodations?
For example, I was looking at Nakao Kogen 4* hotel, and Kayeza Group 4* as well, with breakfast and dinner options at amazing rates.
