We traveled from Nagano to Gifu. 4 : Takayama

 a streetscape 

I introduce the traditional streetscape of Takayama city in Gifu Prefecture.

The festival and the early-morning market that are performed here are also famous.

< supper >

We ate the supper of Japanese inn with the sunken hearth.

We roasted and ate a sweetfish, and a skewered rice-cake that was dipped in miso

I looked back at those days when I had visited my father hometown as a child.


This traveler’s diary terminates in this.
