I dropped in at Takayama town centre to see the Spring festival. The decorated festival floats were displayed in the streets.
The streets were unusually crowded with the people from everywhere in the world.
Cherry blossoms are yet to bloom in Takayama, but people enjoyed this festive mood.
There are many food stalls too.
Takayama Spring Festival is held 14 & 15 April every year. You may see karakuri ningyo performances that sophisticated mechanical dolls move and dance on the floats if you go there right time and right place.
