Step back in time with lots of fun

Getting there:
We've booked our seats on Shinkansen to Nagoya, then transfer on the local train to Takayama. The local train ride is very scenic.

So we left. We are now in Takayama, a small mini Kyoto in the Japanese Alps. Tokyo is an amazing place. For example I discovered today that the Yamanote line, the train line we were taking everyday, is the busiest train line in the world.

I've mentioned this in an earlier post, but the transportation infrastructure in Japan is superb! This morning we had to catch a bus to get to the train station. Of course it was exactly on time. It was a regular city bus so nothing special in that way but what is interesting is the payment method. We had a pass for three days that allowed us to show it when we got on and then when we got off so we didn't have to pay each time. For those people who wanted just a single ticket, ...

Here we go, short and sweet...in Gero aside from tending to the cattle and enjoying the antics of all the animals we spent quite a bit of time working on some construction.

It was hard ...

    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.
