Subject: Re: Four days in Japan
A friend on mine has been teaching English in Japan since Aug. and is having a ball exploring on her days off. For Christmas she sent us a brochure, book and calender about a UNESCO World Heritage site called Shirakawa-go she visited. It features Traditional Houses in the Grassho style. Sounded awesome! If you are into culture and history, this might be the place for you, I know from the map it is on the west side of Japan, in from the coast Ogimachi Village, Ono-gun, Gifu Prefecture! Have fun!
