2016/07/21 Japan Day 10: Takayama to Shirakawago to Kanazawa
π 2016-07-21 01:01 in Japan, Japan2016, Trips

After a night in Takayama, we went to see a few more things before heading out. We started with the morning markets by the river, and went to see Takayama Jinja, a former government outpost and walked through old town a 2nd time after it opened. That gave us a good chance to get hilda beef sushi and hilda beef on a stick (a local high quality beef):

We then had just enough time to get the train station by 10:50 and take the next bus to Shirakawago, and old town village:

We ended up only spending 2H in Shirakawago to having to make a bus reservation for our bus to Kanazawa, and honestly I wish we could have spent 3H but the next bus was another 2H later, i.e. 4H there. 4H wouldn't have been horrible, but leaving after 2, we got hte highlights and had more time to visit Kanazawa where were were going next after a 90mn bus ride. We started with the Suzuki Museum on his life and the pursuit of Zen, but sadly it explained very little about Zen and was generally a waste of time:


So next, we went to the move interesting 21st century contemporary art museum, which was much more fun and has an expo about fake olympics in a city sounding a lot like a big chinese capital :)


the fuck you olympics, very funny :)

We then found a nice steak restaurant where we had expensive beef prepared by the chef in front of us :) (I even managed to make a reservation on the phone in Japanese)
