Last lot of Takayama photos now folks before we head onward to Hiroshima. Random snaps galore!
The man poses in front of yet another gorgeous little wooden homestead. If only we could dismantle one and rebuild it in our back garden!
Here’s a few colourful snaps of posters, banners and stuff to buy. There’s lots of traditional images including Koi Carp and green tea caddies masquerading as little geisha.
Traditional sugary treats and conical hats are temptingly arrayed for the souvenir hunting tourists.
Then it’s back in the Hida bullet train and rumbling onwards to our next destination.
As the train heads onwards I get to gaze out on the beautiful scenery once again.
From tumbling river cascades to endless rice fields, its a peaceful scene of rural Japan.
