    Thanks again Ab.

    Next week is going to be a but frustrating. 9 new cases of Coronavirus in the last two days. It seemed relatively contained up until now, but it feels a little bit ominous. Not too concerned about my own health if I do catch it, but more passing it on, and then from a visitor perspective, the shutdown of various attractions etc. Guess this time next week we'll know more.

    Hi Joel
    A couple of things we liked in Takayama:

    Takayama

    Super cute wee sushi place in Takayama :

    Sushi Bar Monte Feliz
    It's in beside a load of other wee eateries and bars, all small cobbled together in a wee collection of tiny alleyways. Really friendly too.
    Looks like this:



    Fukutaro is a nice, cosy place for a coffee, tasty snack.
    They do beef skewers, rice dumplings on sticks etc. and it's delicious.

    When wandering around the touristy area, the beef buns are great in Kihachiro.

    We did a day trip from Takayama and did some hiking in Kamikochi, it's really, really beautiful. Couldn't recommend it enough :




    It's easy hiking but very scenic, you get a 1h bus to Hirayu Onsen then change and get another 20 minute bus or something.

    Coronavirus seems to be calming down thankfully.
