We woke up rather late and had to rush down to breakfast. Getting out of bed when it's in the floor is tricky! We decided to go to the modern art gallery as the weather forecast was improving as the day progressed. The gallery was a fabulous space - the first thing to greet you was the incredible dotty flowers by Yayoi Kusama who is now world famous but was born in Matsumoto. Her exhibits were extraordinary all dotty. We loved the huge pumpkin room & mirrored rooms. We went ...
Leaving Tokyo was a bit stressful to say the least. We had 2 bags to forward to 2 future hotels on our itinerary. Japan has a very efficient & cheap luggage forwarding system we're told (it remains to be seen whether we will ever see our bags again)!

Heading into town we visit the Sanmachi-juji area where traditional wooden merchant houses are located for which Takayama is famous. We sample some Sake (rice wine), eat Sansai Ryori - dishes of local Hida beef roasted on a magnolia leaf above charcoal brazier with local mountain vegetables, ferns and wild herbs in an old merchant house. When I say eat I mean with difficulty as we did not know what went with what (it was hard to ...
