    ... two villages with very old traditional gassho-style houses. Gassho means "praying hands". The two villages where very cute but also very very touristic.

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.

Apparently the girls decide at age 15 if they wish to join a geisha house. If they are accepted, they train for 5 years at no salary.

    ... Matsumoto famous for its castle amongst other things...not again, I hear you sigh.... This visit was slightly marred as on entering the castle and the normal procedure of removing shoes there was a steep wooden flight of steps which an elderly Japanese man managed to fall back from the top about 8' back to the bottom onto a stone floor, he was unconscious as people rushed to call for help, I felt pretty helpless as I watched him fall but the ambulance was there within ...
