Hida Furukawa 飛騨古川 Town
Furukawa is known as the other old, very traditional town in the Hida region in addition to Takayama. With the stone walls of temples and the great white-walled storehouses in the background, the Seto River is the main highlight of the area. The canals running off the river are home to over 1,000 brilliant carp of many colors, bringing them to life and offering a very different spectacle than Hida's other "Little Kyoto."
Surrounding the river is an old castle town that is very mellow and retains both the feeling and the appearance of old Japan.
