Japan day 13: Travel day


Sorry, no photos today except for this Shishi dancer from the Takayama train station. It was a long day of travel, four trains. We bounced and rocked our way down the mountains to Gifu, rolled backwards to big city Nagoya, Shinkansen to Odawara, Express to Ofuna, local train to Kamakura. We opted for a simple Indian lunch near Nagoya train station, I think we’re nearing our limit of fish flavored meals.

The little bit we’ve seen so far of Kamakura is nice, I think lots of folk out on a Saturday trip from the city. Our hotel is a modern opposite of Antique Inn and best of all has washing machines. So it’s laundry day too.
