Takayama – Kanazawa

Hot and rainy in Takayama so just a quick trip to the Hida Folk Village and its tiny, dusty museum before we checked out of the ryokan and went in to catch the train. Fairly easy trip to Kanazawa, dropped our bags at the hotel before heading down to Kanazawa castle – a recent reproduction of the original which burned to the ground in the 18th century. It’s a coastal city so we walked through the busy fish and produce markets on the way, lots of interesting stuff there. Checked in to our hilariously small hotel rooms (2 x twin) and then a few laps of the station area to find a place for dinner, udon and soba noodle dishes liked by most. Then the REAL highlight, a trip to the ice-cream vending machine in the lobby.
