Gassho Country

This was the final view of Ainokura that I forget to include in the previous post. The main road that runs through the valley has a number of these houses nearby in random locations. I can't remember the name of the next spot I stopped at though.

This place was relatively quiet like Ainokura. I started to wonder if I would tire of these houses rather quickly. After you have seen a few they all start to look the same. Yet, I enjoyed looking at them a lot.

Most of the houses have been converted into shops, restaurants, or places for people to stay. Many houses have been relocated from other locations in order to preserve them.

Maybe you can help me ascertain what is in the next picture.

I really don't know.

I don't trust buying things when the description is written on a plastic meat tray.

There was a fancy tunnel with elevator to an overlook that I made full use of.

I wish I had a suit like this. I wanted to wear it.

I kept wondering if I had left Japan.

No, but everything felt just right.
