Look no further then Dekonaru Yokocho for great food, local sake, and even better atmosphere while visiting Takayama City in Gifue Prefecture, Japan! You will find ramen, oden, gyoza, yakitori, and more at the many yatai, or food stalls, within. Dekonaru Yokocho has almost a festival like atmosphere, and is a great place to experience the night life in Hida Takayama while having a wide range of foods to choose from.
Dekonaru Yokocho isn’t just for adults! Kids are also welcome! There is a Ninja Shop hidden within, where you can try your hand at aiming shuriken. Be sure to snap a photo with the ninja shop keeper while browsing through the souvenier shop!
We also recommend catching a show by the Dekonaru-za, a performance group made up of members of Dekonaru Yokocho. With Japanese wa-daiko drums, shamisen, sword dances, and more, their exciting traditional Japanese live show is sure to be a memorable event during your time in Hida Takayama!
