Much Ado About Nikko

JAPAN | Friday, 23 Aug 2019 | By graynomadsusa | Views [15]

IT ISN’T OFTEN THAT THE FIRST PLACE YOU VISIT is a cemetery.  And not a famous one like Arlington National Cemetery or Normandy, either.  We had to work with a map and the lady at Nikko’s Tourist Information Center just to figure ... Read more >

WE'VE BEEN EVICTED

JAPAN | Thursday, 22 Aug 2019 | By vagabonds3 | Views [18]

A Rough Road to Nikko

JAPAN | Thursday, 22 Aug 2019 | By graynomadsusa | Views [38]

Takayama Matsuri Festival

JAPAN | Tuesday, 20 Aug 2019 | By vagabonds3 | Views [34]

WE JUST REALIZED WHY WE SKIPPED TAKAYAMA in 2014.  The Takayama Matsuri, one of the three most popular festivals in Japan, was going on while we were in the area.  I don’t recall trying but I am sure we couldn’t have gotten reservations ... Read more >


Hida Takayama

JAPAN | Monday, 19 Aug 2019 | By vagabonds3 | Views [17]

I HAVE TO WONDER HOW WE MISSED HIDA TAKAYAMA last time.  It is arguably one of the top destinations in Japan, even if there isn’t a festival going on.  Takayama sits on the shoulders of the Japanese Alps and at 550 meters elevation, ... Read more >
