Day 4 - Visiting Takayama and Ogimachi Village

Takayama lodge view

Tuesday 27th October 2015 was our busiest day on this road trip.  We woke early to feast on a delicious breakfast of croque monsieur and cabbage soup.  Yes, that may sound a strange combination but all the food at Pension Hida no Mori was exceptionally tasty, and our hosts were charming.  A ten minute drive took us to Shiroyama Park where we left the car above Takayama town.

It would be easy to take all day in Takayama, visitng museums and taking the Temple (Higashiyama) Walk but we had to move on. So, after lunch, we drove north to Ogimachi Village and explored the UNESCO World Heritage site in glorious sunshine.  Finally we arrived at the Toyota Shirakawa-go Eco-Institute for the night.
