The 2:30 hrs train ride from Nagoya to Takayama was very scenic. I really got a bit homesick on this train ride. Takayama is a small town close to the Japanes mountains also called Japanese Alps.

Various Japanese condiments and the required rice bowl, of course. A miso topping was heated on a small brazier to be added the rice.

... was at a restaurant specializing in Hida beef which we are told is synonymous with kobe beef. Cattle are specially raised with daily massages, fed special foods including beer, and serenaded with classical music. The resulting meat is highly marbleized and extremely tender and flavourful. Perhaps this is the place to mention that it is still necessary to take ones shoes off almost every time you go into a restaurant or public building other than commercial ...
