Getting to Hida Takayama
We woke up at 3:30 am. Our express bus for Takayama left Busta Shinjyuku at 7:05 am. The bus stopped at several service area on the way including Suwa Lake. We enjoyed the scenery outside the bus windows and Rika took some good nature shots as you can see on the collage and other pictures. We arrived at Takayama around 12:30 pm on time. First thing we did was to look for a restaurant to eat lunch. We went in a local mom & pop restaurant called Tadani. Maybe because it was a rainy day but we were the only customer at that time despite it being normal lunchtime. Food was 3.5 out of 5, average food. We all ate Pork Cutlet Bowl (Katsu-don).
