    An early start for our next stop Takayama - the gateway to the Japanese Alps, a five hour journey from Tokyo. Whizzing through crowded Tokyo station ( with all our luggage) we manage to collect our Japanese rail passes and jump on our Shinkasen (bullet train) with seconds to spare.

The most elaborate requires 8 puppet masters, each managing 4 strings to make the puppets do circus tricks and make other complex movements, There are special thick walled storehouses with tall doors which house the floats not currently on display.

    ... We had lunch near the castle on a wasabi farm, this area being famous for its wasabi. Lunch was served in a 9 section bento box with tiny portions of quite a variety of foods, ranging from a geletan item very popular with young girls as it has 0 calories but supposedly makes you feel full.
