Traverse the Home of Sake with Hida Takayama Ultra Marathon

Have you ever wondered how sake, the aromatic Japanese rice wine, was made? Pay homage to the beverage’s origin, Takayama, a place abundant with water from melting snow that flows to the Toyama and Niigata prefectures, known for rice harvesting. In its golden age, there were as many as 56 unique prospering sake breweries, but now seven traditional breweries are still proudly producing their signature drinks today. This unique Japanese location is also home to the Hida Takayama Ultra Marathon, a fascinating trail run overlooking spectacular sceneries.
