Conveniently near the bus and train stations, and the old town. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was not up to the usual Best Western standard.

Arrival and travel to Tokyo Station First booth outside Customs is a Japanese Rail booth. Pick up prepaid JR Pass and book seats on the 3 trains to get to Takayama. First leg is through Tokyo Central to Shinagawa. Misty, 25 degrees. Houses are small some roofs are elaborate. Many baseball diamonds, some cyclists in Lycra. Cars are small, square and …

Truly crazy crazy experience. Hard to explain, so combination of burlesque, Mardi Gras and more LED lighting and animatronics than you could poke a stick at. Great ...
... not much to see so wandered back to that same cafe as yesterday's breaky for a coffee and a defrost. Them popped next door for a tofu burger for lunch. This was our last morning in Takayama, and now heading back to Tokyo on the train via Nagoya. Have really enjoyed it here. Probably the most tourist friendly with all the signage and English menus etc, but somehow also the least touristy, with almost no shity tourist shops or ...
