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.

After a nice relaxing stop at Furukawa, I headed to Takayama which is also quiet but a little more bigger and busier.
