Day 16 - Falling ice, and the best burger on Earth

They say you shouldn't meet your hero's, because it's bound to end in disappointment. On the last trip we visited a hamburger restaurant in Takayama, called Center 4 Hamburgers. It was, without a doubt, the best burger I'd ever had. Risking tainting that memory, we decided to go back there today to see whether it really was as good as I remembered …

So today marked the start of my 2 week sojourn around Japan to see the sights outside of the metropolis that is Tokyo. And today was going to be my first ride on the Shinkansen, 200mph here we come baby! Err... no. Just a regular train today, tho still capable of 100mph so no slouch. I guess thinking about it, the mountains aren't conducive to high …
