A SIGHTSEEING TOUR IN GIFU AND TOYAMA.

We went to Sirakawago village. There are many big houses used for sericulture. Each house has the architecture with principal ridgepole.

                            岐阜県の白川郷に行きました。

A house of rafter roof.
The roofs look like joining one's hands in prayer.



Then we went to Takayama city.

次は高山市です。

Takayama magistrate's office.

高山陣屋です。


We were on rickshaw. A rickshaw girl guided this old town.

人力車で上三之町を散歩しました。


Then we went to a secluded hot spring hotel in Toyama.

富山県の大牧温泉に行きました。


Komaki Dam lake.

小牧ダム湖です。

We must get on this ferry boat to go to the hot spring hotel.

この船に乗って、30分かけて行きます。


It takes 30minuted to go to the hotel by ferry boat.

自動車では行けません。

We found 3 Japanese serows. We were very lucky.

We arrived at Omaki hot spring hotel,just on the lake side.

We could enjoy a beautiful scene from the room where we stayed.
we enjoyed hot spring very much.

  9. こんにちは、白川郷の写真は最高です。1枚目には観光客が写りましたが、2枚目・3枚目は人がいなくて、いい感じですね。この世界遺産の一番の人気スポットで、人を入れずに撮るのは大変だったのではないかと思いました。
    大牧温泉旅館は行ったことがありませんが、素敵な場所で、素敵な建物ですね。窓からの景色を見ても、紅葉と川が綺麗です。温泉と料理はいかがでしたか。

       こんばんは。白川郷は比較的空いていました。天気が悪くて、写真を撮るのが大変でした。大牧温泉旅館は秘境といった感じです。温泉は、かけ流しで最高でした。
       船でしか行けないので、荷物を持っての乗り降りに苦労しました。晴れていたらもっと良かったです。

      こんばんは。道路が狭くて車で行けない事になってます。。このダム湖の下の方から源泉を汲みあげているそうです。晴れていましたら、もっと景色が美しかったかも知れません。

  23. そちら方面で下呂温泉、高山などは行きましたが、白川郷はまだです。ブロッガーの皆さまの四季折々の白川郷のお写真を拝見してきましたが、晩秋も素敵ですね。小牧ダムからの錦の紅葉、青紫のたそがれ時の色彩は素晴らしいの一言に尽きます。

    京都、奈良でもよい時を!

       こんばんは。小雨模様の白川郷でしたが、それなりに楽しむ事が、出来ました。大牧温泉も晴れていたら紅葉がもっと素敵だったと思います。
       明後日から、京都、奈良に行きます。奈良は談山神社、室生寺、長谷寺です。

  26. Thanks for the tour ! Those houses are so alike than the cabins ("chalet") we have in the alp... All around the world different populations come to the same solutions, it is very interesting to notice it.

  33. 車でいけなくて、船で行く温泉って、風情がありますね。又紅葉がきれいで、緑の湖で、いい時に行かれましたね。一枚目の白川郷、霧がかかって、山里の雰囲気が、いいですね。白川郷は2回程いきましたが、晩秋に行くと、こんな、景色が撮れるのですね。

  35. What a fantastic scene of the old Japan with the traditional houses! Awesome. I remember that I had a foster brother named Yamada Kosaku who lived in Toyama-Ken too. He used to brag to me about this peaceful town.
