Arrived at Ryokan
Our ryokan for 2 nights here in Takayama, Hoshokaku, picked us up at Takayama Station at 2 pm after a little souvenir shopping in the area. We were welcomed at the entrance and as soon as we removed our shoes, we were sent to the cafe area to be seated for some special tea. Amelie and Shawn took a quick nap in our ryokan room. Then we forced ourselves to get out and explore the town even though we were pretty exhausted and it was still raining out.
