The Higashiyama Trail (through the temple district Teramachi) on the east of the train station, is a walking course along several old temples. It ends near the remains of the Takayama Castle. We actually only walked the beginning of the trail, and did not walk all the way to the castle remains. We started just north-east of old town, and walked south, and saw several of the shrines and temples. It is an abour 2 miles (about 3.5 kilometer) long course.
