    ... on triangular blocks whilst having huge stone tablets placed on their thighs. Nice. Dinner was the local speciality of Hida beef which is highly marbled and cooked at your table. Mine was served with shiitake mushrooms, miso soup, rice and vegetables I didn't recognise. Nice enough but I won't be hunting it out at home. All in all a great start to the Japanese adventure. I'm still constantly bemused but at least now I'm doing it in ...

    ... so on. It is somewhat like large markets in most cities, but bigger and with 100 times more species of fish and untold items which we could never name and mostly couldn't guess how to use ... dried herbs or seaweeds, for example. To my relief, most of the fish and shellfish were not alive, but I did see an iced crab try for one final limb stretch. This is not my kind of amusement, so we left the market and found a small restaurant for a Japanese style lunch of steak and prawn ...

    ... getting around today, despite almost no WiFi. Maybe I should forget the pocket WiFi more often. I killed time at the station by eating a Krispy Kreme doughnut (not readily available in Vancouver) and an orange in a McDonald's as it was the only place to sit. McDonald's is not cheap here. One can get a better, bigger meal for less money. I caught the train back and made the walk in the dark back up the hill. Elissa and "The Girl" on ...

    Today was a day with lots of walking, a good contrast to the previous day of too much sitting on a bus. We started in a slightly leisurely way, meeting at 9 a.m. which gives us lots of morning time to catch up on things like writing blog entries! Our first walk took us across the river to a simple street market. Vendors sold flowers, vegetables, local products and tourist trinkets. It wasn't a substantial market, but a glimpse of local entrepreneurs. We were then taken to ...
