    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. The town has a beautiful old town and many lovely temples (with awesome picture opportunities). I did two day trips, one on top of a mountain with a cable car and another one ...

    ... separated only by sliding paper doors. Very atmospheric. Afterwards Anna and I wandered around town, having a lazy lunch and visiting a couple of art and history museums and an old government building from the 17th century.

But it is made a bit easier these days with the assistance of a chainsaw to shave the thatch once it has been applied.

    ... 4 people because there is a brazier on which to cook the meat in the centre of the table, and only 4 can be accommodated. So two other ladies from the tour joined us.
