After viewing Takayama, an old traditional town, we went ahead to Shirakawa which is also an very old and traditional city. A Japanese salary man in a shop of that town told me that he feel a little like he was in the Japanese Switzerland cause of the mountains there lol

We stayed overnight in Shirakawa in a Ryoukan.
|Ryoukan from outside^^|
We made a big tour through Shirokawa as there were so many interesing places to visit.
The diner in the Ryoukan was strange. Many things that looked uneatable. I tried to eat the things but some of them really had a strange taste so that I couldn't eat them as I wasn't hungry anyway.
Before we finally went to bed (or rather Futon) we've gone to a traditional Ofuro near the Ryoukan.
On the next morning I woke up at 5:30. It was too noisy as in the Ryoukan also were children who cried early in the morning. I tried to sleep again but in the end I got up at 6:00 am.
We had breakfast at about 8:00 am which also needed geeting used to. (゜д゜；)
After breakfast we have visited an art gallery of a Japanese artist and then went to Gifu station by car where I went ahead to Nagoya to visit Aika from Nagoya by train.
I arrived in Nagoya after about 25 minutes. Didn't think it was so near.First I couln't find Aika in the station as she wanted to pick me up. So I waited a while and walked around Nagoya station. 10 minutes later I finally have found her (^人^) happy! I haven't seen her before in real so I was really nervous but she was totally nice.
After locking my luggage at the station we went shopping in Nagoya.
