The next morning Obaasan greeted us with a hearty (but not excessive) breakfast in our room – after the bedding was put away, of course.
Then it was off to explore Takayama proper. First up was a visit to the Miyagawa morning markets across the river.
The river was running fast, and the ‘koi’ (or Japanese carp) were feasting on whatever morsels they could find.
The temperature was around freezing that morning – so different from the last time I visited nine years before when the weather was much milder.
