The day outside has been rainy and gloomy while the snow levels increased closer to Nagano.
So luckily today has been a travel day, catching (so far) 4 different trains on a route going along the northern coast and around the Japan Alps and Nagano to eventually reach Yudanaka. Plenty of time then to sit down and watch 'Lost in Translation' and …

Day 32: After arriving in Takayama at around 12pm, we checked into the hostel and then set off to explore the town. Takayama has a section off their town dedicated more to the traditional side of Japanese living, all the houses are the traditional wooden houses with the streets really narrow. There was food being cooked and sold on the streets (not …

Konichiwa from Takayama!
Yesterday was another amazing day in Takayama as we got to explore the beautiful city some more! To start our day off we walked to the morning market to see all of the little shops and even though it was neat to see it wasn't too exciting except for our discovery of these hida beef pastries that are absolutely to die …


After lunch we jumped on the number
four bus heading from Takayama to Shirakawa-go. This is a UNESCO
world heritage site dating back to the 12th Century and is
famous for it's Gassho-zukuri style houses. These are simple A frame
thatched farmhouses that again are like nothing we have ever seen.

    A great place to meet fellow travellers! There's plenty of things being organised by the staff, and a great kitchen and common room which makes it easy to make friends. Everything's kept clean - but this is Japan - either way it's a great choice in Takayama.

    We stayed in a double room, Japanese style. Lovely and roomy, with an aircon unit as well. The hostel is in a great location, close to the train station and the centre. They have a laundry area, kitchen and common room so plenty of space for everyone.
    Staff are very friendly and they can all speak English. Very keen for you to make the most of your stay and are eager to help where they can with itineraries. Bike hire is cheap as well!
    All round - really fantastic!
