The train ride to Takayama was good. Plenty of nice scenery, especially when we climbed higher into the alps. Still lots of snow/ice on the ground.

After moving on every couple of days, we decided to enjoy 5 nights in one spot. Takayama was a lovely little town with the river running through it and shrines galore amongst the cedar trees. The town is renowned for its carpentry and its Hida beef. Both are excellent!! The beef is usually cut very thinly so it melts in your mouth. ...

We couldn't do it justice as the thick snow lying on the paths made it impossible to enter some of the wooden houses. We still learnt about the silkworm cottage industries and the local passion for doll collecting. For lunch we went to a local noodle bar to fortify us for a walk around the ...
