Camped by a lovely Onsen close to this great traditional village where they still have some great older styled thatched roofed homes. We had a soba noddle breakfast in one of these old homes.
We beat the tourists by getting an early jump on them , helped by the fact that dawn comes at 5 am , much to Barbs horror 😉 No escape if you are sleeping in the campervan .
This pic is from Takayama , outside the very old ( 1600’s ) building complex of the Jinka — a government administration centre for this region .a rare relic from this time , now a protected historic site . Lots of Chinese tourists.
What impressive architecture in gorgeous natural settings. Worth waking up early!
