    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 …

    ... and once again some things I could not name. Beni even had some kind of Tiramisu for desstert (yes, a dessert at breakfast... Cool, isn’t it?).

    After breakfast we just walked towards one of the main attractions in Takayama, the Hida No Sato or in English: the Hida Folk Village. This is a open air museum exhibiting over 30 traditional houses from the Hida region. While walking towards it we saw the roof of a huge building, of the Suza Main ...

    I met Koji, whilst having dinner in a restaurant. We decided to do a road trip to Kamikochi and the sightseeing spots around the highlands.

    Had an amazing day,the weather was playing along and travelling in a car for a change felt just like heaven :)

    We finished the day off, by soaking in an outdoor hot spring. What more can you want!?! :)

    ... two villages with very old traditional gassho-style houses. Gassho means "praying hands". The two villages where very cute but also very very touristic. I will notice that I really like rice fields (I you haven't already noticed that from pictures earlier this trip) and I felt in love with Japanese temples, houses and gardens. I hope I don't bore you with my pictues ...

    ... miso, fish and raw egg. I don't feel like I missed much to be honest. In Takayama we visited a folk village with examples of all kinds of different traditional houses from the 17th and 18th centuries. The biggest thing that struck me was how smoky everywhere smelt. There are fires burning constantly and the wooden houses had absorbed the smell so much that you really couldn't escape it. It was fascinating to imagine how people lived in ...
