23 July 2014 – Furukawa & Takayama
I headed to Furukawa and Takayama today.
Furukawa is an traditional town known for it’s woodworking roots. In Furukawa is a woodworking museum for the builders who made all the wooden houses and temples in the area.
It is a very quiet town where there are small streams for the koi fish to swim in on the sides of the walkways.
The woodworking museum which I spent some time looking through.
The play area of the museum.
Some scale models of buildings.
Some carpentry tools.
After a nice relaxing stop at Furukawa, I headed to Takayama which is also quiet but a little more bigger and busier.
Outside Takayama, there isn’t much traffic here either.
I had a nice walk through the town central area before heading to the hotel.
Some of the shops I passed by.
The hotel I stayed at.
