Day #1711 Title: Iwatakan Feast
Location: Takayama, Japan
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 10-22mm EF-S f/3.5-4.5 USM
Notes: This morning we were able to indulge in a lie in. After our 5am alarm call yesterday, it was most welcome! Our mode of transport for today was a bus through the mountains to Takayama. It rained heavily along the way, but turned hot and sticky once we arrived at our destination – another traditional style Ryoken lodging. Having settled in, we had a wander into the town, sampled some excellent local sake, then I looked around the old administration building Takayama Jinya which has survived hundreds of years. This evening we enjoyed the magnificent feast above, cooked in our lodgings. There were so many tasty things on each tray, it was hard to know where to begin! We ended the evening in a relaxed fashion, listening to our guide’s tales from when he cycled the length of Japan. Read more about my stay.
