Takayama wasn’t in my original plan but saw info about it when I did my research and decided even though the train rides are long, it is probably still worth it…
Found this website during my planning: http://www.hyperdia.com/en/ . Very useful for sorting out transportation route! It helped me figured out how to go from Nara to Takayama as it wasn’t that straight forward.
As it turns out, Takayama is a beautiful little town and specialized in delicious Hida beef!
Old farm houses…
We had lots of Hida Beef!
Korean style BBQ
Raw Beef Sushi!
These aren’t the typical ones…they are with Hida beef filling!
Hida Beef Buns
A cute way of making hot cocoa…foam milk + slice of chocolate
