First stop after breakfast this morning was the beautiful 350 year old park known as Kenrokuen Gardens. It took 125 years to "build" though about 90% of it seems quite natural. In 1676, it was originally the outer garden of Kanazawa Castle. There are large ponds, waterfalls and streams which were channeled in certain ways for specific effects. Many of the trees are very old and propped up with carefully constructed and strategically placed wooden props. Although we missed the ...

... village and get a close up view of a new thatched roof being applied. It looks like hot, hot work, even in the mountains. But it is made a bit easier these days with the assistance of a chainsaw to shave the thatch once it has been applied. To get a bit of the feel for the roof, imagine one of those sisal door mats about 25 times the thickness and about 6 times the density .. so at least 18 inches of thickness or more, and the density of a ...

It wasn't a substantial market, but a glimpse of local entrepreneurs. We were then taken to ...

... the gateway to the Japanese alps. The houses and yards were delicate and Japanese, just like calendar photographs. But I was surprised at how common it is to have a private rice paddy. As we would have a side yard of lawn, frequently we saw side plots of newly planted rice. I have been told that a family will normally consume the contents of three paddies in a year.

... around the little city for an hour or so, we didn’t have any clue what to do. We were told there were buses, but we couldn’t find any. We were at least able to find a store open where we could buy some snacks and we found a quiet spot by the river to eat and wait for our train to come. Blerg. It was a long day.

That afternoon we continued to wander around Takayama and enjoy the small town atmosphere. The next day we would journey to ...
