Today I decided to stay in takayama for the rest of the morning and head to Kyoto around lunchtime. I headed to the hida folk museum, which displays traditional Japanese houses from the 1600's onwards, in order to preserve this cultural heritage for future generations. Set in a realistic village setting it was an interesting experience seeing how people lived in japan and how their buildings were designed depending on the natural forces at work in ...

The temples had some brilliant gardens surrounding them(see pictures), which really made use of the autumnal colours and must be off the tourist radar because they were well worth visiting and yet I only saw 2 or 3 people in the whole 12 temple complex.
