... babies. However, the highlight of the meal was shabu-shabu, a style of self cooking thinly sliced beef very briefly in a hot broth. Strangely, this meal was not served with rice, but after all of the main courses were finished, then a bowl of rice cooked in a broth with added vegetables (ie different than usual) was served with a bowl of miso soup. We'd never been served in this style before, but apparently it is a "banquet" style of dining in this region. Every day a new ...

Our first stop was at a beautiful mountain village and UNESCo World Heritage site called Shirakawago. We entered a 300 year old home with the traditional ultra steep thatched roof to keep the snow off.

... grades, and this area is famous for having the very best. After lunch it was a long but very beautiful drive on narrow mountain roads with tunnels every mile or so, for about 3 hours to reach Takayama. We were all exhausted when we arrived at about 7:30, but in awe of the bus driver's skills maneuvering the narrow mountain roads with only a couple of inches between oncoming buses and trucks in many places.

... rare because maintaining the roof-tops costs 300,000$ to replace every 30 years (and most people would rather not pay such a hefty price). The ancient village was lovely and quiet, filled with cherry blossoms and surrounded by an avocado-coloured river and lofty hills. There are only perhaps three dozen structures, so you can easily navigate the village in a few hours, and have time in inspect it all. We walked around the small streets (avoiding the ...
