... 100 years may not be old in the history of humanity but for a wooden structure of 3 floors with extensive woodwork it was pretty darn impressive. The pictures hopefully do it some justice. From top to bottom everything is wooden. The doors are papered over for privacy which means they don't insulate from sound or temperature but traditionally in Japan buildings are not heated (imagine how cost effective that must be). We staggered up to ...

... a concert on the river in Ito that evening and we decided to have a look as it was close to the hotel and we wanted to go out for dinner anyway. It turned out to be a performance by a local Taiko band. Hearing the smaller and larger drums being played together, accompanied by a flute was really great.

Ito Arrival

A travel blog entry by canadiansmiley

It was two train rides and 5 hours of travel. Relaxed in the bath and have a good night ...

You have to like climbing if you cycle in Japan. However, being in the mountains even along a paved road with little traffic has its attractions. There are the spectacular views, the quiet stillness when there is no traffic and the sense of the power and beauty of nature from being in the mountains. I can understand ...
