As with the usual custom, this is the time of the year that we ship the kids off to somewhere wintery, snowy and cooooold for that quintessential white christmas and new year. This year, we are back at the very first place that they encountered snowy landscapes, the winter wonderland that is Takayama. 🙂
Booked the flight tickets through a travel promo at CAX, but it was quite a long day of travelling, due to the stopover in Hkg. The girls were also quite sad that they don’t do their kids pack anymore (well, at least not for the short haul flights)! Arrived at Nagoya, where we stayed in the cutest little hotel (very new and very recommended if it was just for a couple!) and left right after for Takayama. Our 1st full day was in Takayama, where the girls got gradually more and more excited as the train went higher and higher into the mountains. Luckily for us, the weather has turned sunny, and we were very relieved that the heavy snowfall that was just in the mountains a week ago has abated and public transport has returned to “almost” normal.
