After leaving Tokyo, we traveled by train to Takayama. Note to other travelers: Takayama is very cold and snowy in March. Our first day was spent wandering around the Old Town district. I didn't take many interesting photos of that, but I may include some in a future post.
On our second day, we ventured out in the rain to the snow covered Hida Folk Village up the hill from our little Japanese style hotel. It was cold and wet and cold. Did I mention it was cold?
The village is a recreation of what old villages would've looked like over a hundred years ago. Many of the houses are two to three hundred years old. They were moved from other local villages and rebuilt here. Pretty cool, if you like history.
Best snowman ever.
A loom, I think.
Fatal Frame worthy well.
The only warmth I had for hours.
