|Yikes, it was 28 degrees out when we woke up in Takayama. We decided to skip the walk to the open air market as we were not prepared for such cold weather. After a late checkout from the hotel we walked around town and browsed in a few stores while heavy snow flurries made a picturesque, if cold, scene. Lunch was vintage American, hamburger and fries. At 3 pm it was time to head to the train station and a 3-3/4 hour trip to Kyoto. Upon arrival we had a nice multi course Japanese dinner and checked into our Kyoto hotel where we'll spend the next 3 nights.
