Last weekend, I've been Hida-Takayama, Shirakawa-go, Kanazawa, etc by bus tour with XYL and daughter.
We got up in the ver early Saturday morinig and went to Shinjuku terminal by train then get on the tour bus there. Tour started 7AM from Shinjuku.
Before 1st destination Takayama we short stopped at a parking near Kamiko-chi. The mountains are already covered by colourful leaves.
At Takayama, we ate Takayama ramen.
Then we walk around Hida-Takayama old town.
Very nice red leaves of "Momiji"a kind of maple.
Next we visited Shirakawa-go, a wolrd heritage, where old Japanese houses are preserved.
Next day (Sunday), we visited Kenroku-en, a traditional Japanese Garden in Kanazawa-prefecture.
Here is Kanazawa-jo castle.
The last one is Higashi-chaya-machi, a traditional amusement center in Kanazawa.
HIGASHI means EAST.
Finally we drive along seaside of Nihon-kai or Japan sea.
It was very short but concentrated trip. It was fun but tired. zzz
