SHIRAKAWA-GO/TAKAYAMA

This morning we left our ryokan, the Kagaya Hotel, and started on our trip to Shirakawa-go. We first visited a rice farmer. He only farms 0.7 acres. We learned all about rice farming and the problems it is now having in Japan. Apparently the young Japanese prefer pasta and pizza to rice so the rice consumption is declining and is only about 2/3rds of what it used to be. There are ...

A Monkey Surprise

Early shinkansen to Nagano. Quite warm. Renovating so wander around construction site to local train to Yudanaka.
Local train "Snow Monkey Express" climbed up steady slope to many snow banked buildings, eventually snow-covered fields.
Yudanaka is grey and unimpressive at the station. We decide to take a taxi to hotel.
Arrive at hotel at about 1:30 so chose to walk up to Snow Monkeys. We were told we could check in before 4, or after 4:30.
Wonderful walk up to ...

Trip to Yudanaka to see the Snow Monkeys

We woke up early and set off in very wet conditions from Tokyo heading for the main train station. We boarded a Shinkansen a high speed bullet train that went from Tokyo to Nagano. These trains can travel at speeds of 190 mph. Before we knew it we were at Nagano and swapped over to the Electric railway bound for the mountain town of Yudanaka. When we reached Yudanaka our host Mr Yumoto met us and took us back to his ryokan. We quickly off loaded our bags ...

Distance: 48.7 km
Elevation gain: 1,216 metres
Route: http://ridewithgps.com/trips/1900574

Today's ride was epic in many ways - the challenge of riding in thick fog, the beautiful scenery and the rush of descending for almost 20 km. The details are all below.

First, I was treated to a lovely, typical Japanese breakfast at the Spax Hotel in Kusatsu this morning. Looking back from my current ryokan here in Yudanaka, the Spax was a very nice hotel. ...

Snow monkeys!!!

Today we travelled from Nikko to Yamanouchi (Yudanaka) to see some monkeys taking the onsen. Onsen, as you know by now dear readers, is the thermal baths all over Japan. At Yamanouchi there is a place where monkeys bath in the hot springs. I have included some pictures and a video so you can see for yourself. As the crow flies it is not that far from Nikko to Yamanouchi. The Shinkansen, however, does not fly like a crow and so we had to go virtually back to Tokyo to get to our ...
