After a few days in Tokyo, it was painfully obvious that we had overscheduled ourselves in Japan – it broke our hearts to leave so much unseen - but we decided to push on regardless. Tokyo and Kyoto are the two major destinations for our Japan travels, but we also wanted to experience a less urban environment, so we decided to make a side trip to Takayama, a small mountain town.
