          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!

          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.

          We all managed to get a little shut eye
          and about 2hrs20mins later we arrived a Takayama. This town is
          famous for it's historical buildings that really give the feeling of
          how life was in medieval Japan.

          We checked into the hotel, grabbed a
          shower and headed out for a bite to eat. We...

          It has been some time since we wrote the last entry, but now we have arrived in Japan. We both love it!

          But first some info about our last days in Laos. After our jungle trekking we went out on a one day cycling tour around Luang Nam Tha (see added pics from that occasion). Except from really bad bike maps, that tour...

          Day 3 in Takayama dawned sunny and hot. I guess Mari (our guide) was right when she said that when the rainy season ends, it ENDS! I didn't think I would look back on those rainy, overcast days with fondness, but the sun is just so hot. Oh well, no complaints about the weather so far, we have been very lucky.

          The rainy season has officially ended, as today dawns clear and sunny. Of course, that also means that it's hot. Really hot!

          Christine started her day with a trip to the Onsen and sauna this morning, while Kent used the free internet connection to catch up on the world of news and sports. Once we were ready to go, we headed down to che...
