Yamano Hotel is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed. It is almost impossible to find fault with the hotel. Dinner and breakfast were very good, including local specialties like Hida beef, Hida buckwheat noodle, and Hoba miso. They also have two great outdoor bathes with hot springs. The staffers were well trained for warm hospitality.

Also loved the advise for earthquakes: hid under the ...
... two villages with very old traditional gassho-style houses. Gassho means "praying hands". The two villages where very cute but also very very touristic. I will notice that I really like rice fields (I you haven't already noticed that from pictures earlier this trip) and I felt in love with Japanese temples, houses and gardens. I hope I don't bore you with my pictues ...
... wooden bar and tiny tables. We felt really out of place in this locals only joint, but it was pretty fun to sip on our beers and people watch. (Of course we know the Japanese word for beer). Biro.
While in Matsumoto, we made sure to visit the ancient village of Narai-juku, which was a 45 minute train ride away. We were sure to double check the schedule to make sure we wouldn’t be stuck there for hours on end (like that day at the ...
