There is very cold at Takayama in March, but very warm at J-Hopper in March. Nice staff, especially a Staff from Hong Kong, she will suggest me the traveling plan, and nice to provide information. The hostel's facilities are plenty and is near by the bus stations and main attractions in Takayama, Goold!
