... Kanazawa to Takayama are full. The bus was the cheaper option, so now its back to see if there is a train we can book. Yes there is a train and its not full, yet. Turns out the train is the same price as the bus.

There was a long line of pristinely dressed taxi drivers waiting outside the station. Of note all seemed to be as least 75. Ryan thinks it is their wives sending them out to get a job after they retire. I wonder if it is the safest population to be driving people around? We arrived ...
