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.
