    ... of Special Scenic Beauty". The next stop was at a shop where gold leaf decorated objects are produced. Gold is pounded and rolled until it is whisper thin. It is amazing to watch the artisan pick up this film, much thinner than a hair, (1/10,000 of a millimeter) with a chopstick and deftly place it on the block where she wishes to shape it.

    ... and is a national heritage site, dating to the late 1500s. Again, on these grounds we saw a beautiful bride, but this time in a kimono.

    As soon as we arrived, we realized that we needed to hop on a bus to visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Shirakawa-go, a traditional ancient village nearby. As per usual, Dom and I scarfed down sandwiches on a bench beside the 7-11 and hopped on our bus.
