Takayama

We had a lovely time in Takayama. This is a smaller town and it was a delight to wander around the lovely old streets of houses with gorgeous little shops. Another day here would have been lovely.




 We went on a lovely walk up the hill to look down on the town.
 We even tried some sake here.

 The shops in this town were lovely. There were lots of handmade things to see which was a delight. One of the shops had sashiko fabric and thread so just had to get some to have a go.


 This was my favourite shop. The owner had made this quilt and had some lovely handmade items for sale and some lovely woven and wooden pieces too.



That afternoon we took the train to Kanazawa.
