The train ride to Takayama was good. Plenty of nice scenery, especially when we climbed higher into the alps. Still lots of snow/ice on the ground.

The town is renowned for its carpentry and its Hida beef. Both are excellent!! The beef is usually cut very thinly so it melts in your mouth. ...

... of town which houses many temples and shrines. We had a special local green tea with soya foam in a tea room in an old traditional shop accessed via a sliding door that we would never have known existed but for our tour leader's local knowledge. To finish our sightseeing we went to the old government building from the 17th century that is the only one existing in japan now from that era which also has one of the ...
