    Basic business hotel, it's new and very clean, not very far from the train station. The onsen facility is complementary which is great. We hired the bikes from next door and rode around the town which was great.

    Arrived in Takayama from Kyoto, spotted snow in the trees on the train on the way here. And the temp when we got off the train matched! Glad we have plenty of warm clothes after hitting up Uni Qlo while we were still in Tokyo. Headed out into the old town and visited a couple of sake breweries. Bumped into a nice guy who took us one tour of one, …

    ... of Special Scenic Beauty". The next stop was at a shop where gold leaf decorated objects are produced. Gold is pounded and rolled until it is whisper thin. It is amazing to watch the artisan pick up this film, much thinner than a hair, (1/10,000 of a millimeter) with a chopstick and deftly place it on the block where she wishes to shape it. The tiniest breath will blow it away. It is then applied to any number of different ornaments, the resulting decorative arts being ...

    ... moved. Their dance was apparently one of the oldest traditional folk dances still remembered and performed. Although I chose not to ascend the ladder to upper levels because of bare feet, I understand that on the upper stories they traditionally kept silk worms. One would think it would be a smoky atmosphere for the busy little worms, but apparently they kept working through the smoke. Behind the house was a large koi pond, and upon asking, ...

    ... kind of museum where "floats" are on display between the spring festival and the autumn festival where they become part of a parade of floats, a tradition which started in the 17th century. 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. These floats may weigh more than 2 tons, and are hand pulled by however many men are required. The heaviest one has no wheels ...

    ... Tokyo is an experience in itself. One of the interesting districts is the "love hotel" district where many short stay hotels are located in close proximity to each other. Some are themed, and while catering to a wide range of clients, it was said that they do fill a niche with young people who often live in cramped quarters with several generations. But I digress.
