... 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 ...

... on triangular blocks whilst having huge stone tablets placed on their thighs. Nice. Dinner was the local speciality of Hida beef which is highly marbled and cooked at your table. Mine was served with shiitake mushrooms, miso soup, rice and vegetables I didn't recognise. Nice enough but I won't be hunting it out at home. All in all a great start to the Japanese adventure. I'm still constantly bemused but at least now I'm doing it in ...

... went into the next open air restaurant and we enjoyed watching them as each got up to deliver a very short speech ... probably a graduation party, though clearly only classmates, no dates, no flowers, just student contemporaries. As is the case everywhere, we marvel over the lack of garbage cans, yet not a single piece of litter is ever seen. Politeness rules in every way. No wonder everyone raves about their trip to Japan. We will be no ...

... was at a restaurant specializing in Hida beef which we are told is synonymous with kobe beef. Cattle are specially raised with daily massages, fed special foods including beer, and serenaded with classical music. The resulting meat is highly marbleized and extremely tender and flavourful. Perhaps this is the place to mention that it is still necessary to take ones shoes off almost every time you go into a restaurant or public building other than commercial ...
