Takayama is a small town in the mountains. Aside from the beautiful nature and temples, tourists come here to walk the unspoiled Edo-period streets, lined with shops, museums, and eating places.

Hida beef is a speciality here. It was delicious.

I caught some really good live music.

These houses are part of a preserved traditional part of town. Get here early before the tourists mob the place!

Anyone need batteries?

Entering a ryokan (Japanese Inn) for the night.

My incredible window view.

Relaxing in an onsen (hot spring).

Pachinko. I'm the big winner! I put in $2 and won $14. Beginner's luck!

The ryokan served an amazing breakfast.
