... 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.

What brave souls. The local Linino line runs directly beside the museum. There's no missing it. I pre-scouted the gift shop and ate a hot dog at the cafe, then entered the museum. It's a beautiful museum. It may be called the Toyota ...
