Japan - Hida Mts
Set up camp for a few days at a ryokan in Hida-Takayama, which was awesome. The ryokan was a great experience, and the area was so beautiful and luscious. My favorites were visiting Shirakawa-go, a World Heritage traditional gassho-house farming village, and Kamikochi, a hiking base in the Hida Mountains (the central “Japanese Alps”), where I got to be in beautiful nature and stalk wild Japanese macaques that were running around all over the place. Best!
