    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.

    A three hour train journey through Alps to reach Takayama, then a ten minute walk to our old fashioned minshuku.

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

    The 2:30 hrs train ride from Nagoya to Takayama was very scenic. I really got a bit homesick on this train ride. Takayama is a small town close to the Japanes mountains also called Japanese Alps. The town has a beautiful old town and many lovely temples (with awesome picture opportunities). I did two day trips, one on top of a mountain with a cable car and another one ...

    ... sell the same things, trinkets and food
    Our drive there and back was an experience. We used the expressway and you travel a lot, if not most of the time, in tunnels. I didn't count but believe we would have gone thru at least 40 tunnels today. I think the shortest was 160m and the longest was 10.71 kms! Sometimes there is as little as 30-40 m between tunnels. It certainly makes for smooth sailing thru the alps with glimpses of ...

    ... grass mats and sliding paper doors. The room's a bit of a shock, the only furniture's a low table and a TV. You have to make your futon bed yourself on the floor with the mattresses and sheets provided in the wardrobe. Bathing is fun too and definitely tests the famous British reserve (for the women at least). The showers are communal and there's a big spa bath or Onsen. You can't take any clothes in there, not even your towel and ...

Some of the questions were inane, making one wonder if some people read anything at all, but some brought out interesting details that I would never have thought to ask. Apparently the girls decide at age 15 if they wish to join a geisha house. If they are accepted, they train for 5 years at no salary. After 6 months apparently about 50% of the novitiates either do not ...
