Here's where the previous references to cars going down in the other lane become relevant. As I tried to go back down the way I came, there was a gentleman standing by a big sign that was blocking the lane going down and who was directing traffic. He crossed his forearms in front of his chest and kept saying to me "Dah-may! Dah-may!" which I figured out means "Not Allowed."

It's getting late here in Tokyo and I don't have the energy to write up the entry for the climb up to the volcano on Mt. Higashi-Azuma. It was a long climb - about 27 km continuous uphill to an elevation of 1,700 metres and I'm knackered. I am posting the link again for the flickr photos which show how picturesque this ...

I wasn't unhappy to get back on the expressway and back to Takayama.
Tomorrow we head for Hiroshima. ...
... The views of Nihonmatsu and the surrounding mountains are beautiful. On return to Nihonmatsu, We paid a quick visit to the Nihonmatsu shrine. It is not as spectacular as those at the major tourist spots but it was peaceful and a nice place to visit. It also had many steps - good training for the streets of Paris and the Cinque Terra. Two of Jess's colleagues I invited us out to ...
