Now I've joined up with the rest of the G Adventures tour my Japanese trip can start properly. Our first destination, Takayama is in the mountains and we took 2 trains out of Tokyo to reach it.

These floats have little in common with North American parade floats, except that they do form a parade on the 4 days of the year they are used.
