    This minshuku i very central and walking distance from the train station. It was a very homely place to stay with a good bath house within the building. Room and beds were comfy. Be sure to have the in house dinner which was excellent. Also an excellent Hida beef restaurant in a hotel a few hundred meters away.

Quite cold, even got snowed on. Had three great …

    ... grilled beef. OMG it was melt in your mouth. It is highly marbled with fat, so something we would never buy at home, but it was so good, and very expensive but hey we are only here once and after a week of pretty well nothing but noodles, it was a delightful change for the palate. HIDA beef comes from the black cattle unique to this region. It is graded 1 to 5 with 5 the best quality. It is priced by grade and weight. It is something like $80 for 500 ...

    In the morning we went to the Miyagawa morning market - it was great, yummy fried chicken. Joey bought Sarubobo dolls. Then we walked up to the Hida village, and explored the old houses. Collected stamps, answered the quiz and got a prize at the end. In the evening we went to Salute for pizza - delicious. We had Margherita pizza with ...
