    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 …

    Dinner was delish again as we went to the same restaurant as last night. It was such a good experience both times! Our hosts -Hiroshi and Naoko provide so many little complimentary extras with your meal. This time it was appetisers, chicken broth, melon and chocolates along with free tastings of any alcohol before you order. Naoko also poured us ...

    ... separated only by sliding paper doors. Very atmospheric. Afterwards Anna and I wandered around town, having a lazy lunch and visiting a couple of art and history museums and an old government building from the 17th century. You can just imagine the officials in their ceremonial robes going about their business, especially in the interrogation room where they extracted confessions through some pretty gruesome methods like making ...

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 ...

    ... told, "yes" the fish are not just ornamental, but also provide lunch or dinner. This stop is typical of the kinds of things one can see while on tour that we would never find on our own, and even if we did, we wouldn't be aware that performances can be arranged. As Yumi says, these are "hidden treasures". A short bus ride later we disembarked for a group photograph at a "scenic spot". This would be understatement, the appropriate ...
