... 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.

... the people, the sights and sounds of a modern bustling city, so similar to every other of its size and sophistication, yet so perfectly different for being completely Japanese. The young people's fashion provide a continual tableau of wonder. We chose a small "Japanese/Italian" restaurant again ... it seems if it's not Japanese, it's Italian ... not many other ethnic restaurants are represented. As we sat down a huge group of Japanese ...

... the menu. Each of the other ladies had quite differently priced dinners, so a significant sorting out job was required. We got it worked out so 3 sums matched the total of the bill, but the waiter wasn't convinced that he could manage one person paying cash and 2 using credit cards. I have no idea how long we would have been there if Yumi had not interceded on our behalf showing how the math worked out. As they say, all's well that ends well, and it was truly a unique ...
