Matsumoto Castle A few days with our japanese hosts

Visiting the local shrine in Takasaki

A completely wonderful spring day to celebrate Mar's birthday!

We had a classic hanami outing, which is to have a picnic beneath the blooming cherry trees (sakura)

Matsumoto castle with the ninjas and samurais. The castle is over 400 years old.
The food has been sensational! Each region loves to showcase its specialty dishes.
A quick stop to see a wasabi farm. Here we are enjoying (really!) some wasabi ice cream. As you do...

We stayed in the beautiful traditional village of Narai-juku

Our traditional ryokan was just great
