From Kanazawa to Takayama

One last look at Kanazawa before leaving the following day – this is Kanazawa castle at dusk.

The following day we had two train changes, each of 5 minutes, to make the trip from Kanazawa to Takayama. So in a few minutes, with heavy baggage, need to find elevator/escalator, find new platform, find escalator/elevator again. Made the first connection with only a few seconds spare but the second was easier – small station with only two platforms.

The train line was single track, and with my excellent command of the Japanese language I was able to persuade them to let me drive!

The fall scenery was lovely as we made our way by train to Takayama;
