    First stop after breakfast this morning was the beautiful 350 year old park known as Kenrokuen Gardens. It took 125 years to "build" though about 90% of it seems quite natural. In 1676, it was originally the outer garden of Kanazawa Castle. There are large ponds, waterfalls and streams which were channeled in certain ways for specific effects. Many of the trees are very old and propped up with carefully constructed and strategically placed wooden props. Although we missed the ...

    ... village and get a close up view of a new thatched roof being applied. It looks like hot, hot work, even in the mountains. But it is made a bit easier these days with the assistance of a chainsaw to shave the thatch once it has been applied.

It wasn't a substantial market, but a glimpse of local entrepreneurs. We were then taken to ...

    ... I hope he made a good recovery because it looked very nasty, some of the stairs in the castles can be very steep and you often don't have much grip walking in socks on the wooden steps, I was much more cautious after watching the poor guy fall. I had a wander around the rest of Matsumoto and again had a good laugh with a Chilean couple who were also on a volunteer exchange working at the hostel, they too had the Japan bug and we're staying for two months at least, ...
