As for the cuisine, Keichan-yaki is also well-known in Takayama. In short, it consists of pan-fried chicken with vegetables. Takayama is surrounded by mountains and its male citizens have traditionally eaten Keichan-yaki to gain stamina in preparation for a hard day's work in the mountains. This year, there was a contest to decide the best local food in each prefecture of Japan, and Keichan-yaki was selected as the best cuisine in Gifu Prefecture.
I came to London last September and I noticed that the people here love chicken. For example, when ordering Katsu-curry in Japanese restaurants in London, Japanese people choose pork Katsu-curry while local customers prefer the chicken version. I believe that Keichan-yaki would suit the taste of British people. Please try to make it yourself!
