J-BOND Team Trip - 5th day in Japan (2)

May 14, 2015


J-BOND Team arrived at Takayama old town early in the afternoon yesterday.  They checked in a B&B hotel just near JR Takayama Station, and stayed there for only 1 night.  This morning they checked out the hotel and changed hotel acommodation to Takayama Green Hotel, which are well reputated on the top ranking in Takayama old town by tourists feedback.  I told the team earlier that they can definitely enjoy unbelieveably fantastic Japanese full-course dinner tonight.


The team woke up early this morning again, and took a local bus to "Kamikochi" in NAGANO prefecture, which is one of the most famous mountain-valley areas in Japan for natural sightseeing.  Again, the logistic is not so simple & easy for the group, however, it is worthwhile trying to get there to see so beautiful scenery in mountain natures in very clean air.  I will update you on my tomorrow's blog.


Back to Takayama old town, it is called in another way as a small Kyoto.  Takayama sitll keeps well nice old & nolstagic places there and you can really enjoy such an atmosphere.  The below is one of the photos that were taken by myself 20 year ago.  I like this photo, because it shows to represent the image of Takayama old town, together with a middle-aged lady in the background of old-style Japanese houses.  The old town still remains unchanged.    You should plan to visit there, if you have not yet visited.
