JR Hida limited express at Gero-Onsen station

The Hida is a limited express between Nagoya and Toyama along the Takayama Line, and it runs via Gifu and Gero to Takayama in just over two hours. Once a day there is a service leaving from Osaka rather than Nagoya.

It is a popular service for foreign tourists because of famous Takayama, but also because it is a beautiful train ride through the mountains and along the Hidagawa river.
