The conventional route

A panicked, banged-up itinerary bordering on the unconventional finally materialised a day or 2 ago, when I finally got the courage to go to Takayama from Tokyo (the forbidden element being the immense train journeys I’d have to undertake in those couple of days). I’ve always been called ambitious when it comes to travel planning and I’m taking some advice gleaned from all forums and friends that staying a few more days in a place could be a good thing.

It now looks like this and resembles quite embarrassingly, some tourist itinerary:

Tokyo – Takayama/Shirakawa-Go – Kyoto, with tons of day trips in between (in red) on the Shinkansen.
