So, Golden Week was a while ago now. We mostly stayed around our parts, but we did go on an epic 16.5 hour road trip with our friend Nerida one day. We covered a lot of ground that day. Mostly we were searching for these old thatched roof houses which we finally found right before sundown.
We tried this delicious mochi on a stick with a miso-based sauce.
On the way there we checked out Takayama. We were searching and searching for a parking spot when it turned out you could just pull right up to the shrine, no problem (like these cabs).
We walked around the district with old, traditional houses. John had to try one of these "sembe" (rice crackers). Obviously, he liked it!
