... cut or decide this is not the life they had envisioned. For the first 5 years they are looked after by the "mother" of the house, as well as, I believe, by their patrons. They can see their families only 3 times per year and otherwise are completely under control of the house mother. Somehow I kept thinking of the similarity to nuns, although the masters served are different. One interesting thing I learned about geishas as well as kabuki actors is why their faces are made up ...

Our first stop was at a beautiful mountain village and UNESCo World Heritage site called Shirakawago. We entered a 300 year old home with the traditional ultra steep thatched roof to keep the snow off. This is nestled well into the mountains so it's not surprising that the thatch is thick, but it also extremely dense. It needs to be redone every 25 years. Once our shoes were removed and we were seated, we were served tea from a steaming kettle ...

... We had lunch near the castle on a wasabi farm, this area being famous for its wasabi. Lunch was served in a 9 section bento box with tiny portions of quite a variety of foods, ranging from a geletan item very popular with young girls as it has 0 calories but supposedly makes you feel full. It was unremarkable. Other items included a smoked candied trout, egg omlette, a tofu dish which I thought was quite nice, and ...

... and ooze charm on the passerby’s. Glowing red lanterns greet you at the opening of many bars and restaurants. Takayama is peaceful, small and really quiet. We were there on a Saturday night and there were very few people about. That evening, we dined in an actual restaurant for once, enjoying warm yakisoba and green tea among the locals.

During the daytime, the city is more bustling, and there are many shops open on the main boulevards of ...
