... attractions like the forest of the seven gods of fortune. There were 7 big and massive wooden statues of them and thanks to a sheet we got we even got some more information about them.
After this visit we finally found the village and at the entrance there was already the complete tourist program; a woman came to us and friendly pushed us towards a good spot to take a picture with some props (an umbrella for me and a japanese hat for Beni). ...
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 ...
We both had quite a broken nights sleep, it was probably because it was two single beds pushed together rather than a double. It probably didn't help that we were in our room from 7pm. We got some bread and butter at the supermarket the day before so headed down to the kitchen to make ourselves some marmite on toast to start the day. We also got a couple teas from the vending machine which were so full of sugar we could barely finish them.

... we can order, "it" comes out. The table in front of us is served the $21 Hida beef grill. It looks awesome. It smells awesome too.
"We'll take that please!"
Mmmmmm, best part was just closing our eyes and chewing. It was so good that we decided to have it the following night too! Some guy even came to our table just so he could take pictures! Couldn't blame him one bit.
