August 14 and 15, 2008
We made our way to Takayama by bus. Many guidebooks describe this small town as a little version of Kyoto. I booked a small hostel in a temple. We made our way there and rented their bikes.
The temple hostel. Hanging out on a bridge.
We tootled around town, visited the historic machiya (old storefronts) area, went to a temple and just generally enjoyed the weather and scenery.
