Travel in Chubu: Happy with Hida steamed stuff bun including accommodation for 3 people at 3 areas in Takayama.So the story is we travelled together 3 persons and we were stuck by snow on the way back from Gero onsen last time. So we had to do something new whether it was rooms or travel plans. This is Japan, be prepared that anything could happen! Luckily that this place has good food everywhere so that helped a lot hahaha.takayama_1From the first day at Takayama, we planned to stay only one night at Takayama Ouan, then had to change into two nights. See how much snow it was. Then how could we go to any place? What about the hotel at Okuhida that we booked? I really wanted to be in Hito onsen there.takayama_2I would tell back when we travelled to Shirakawako and that made us unable to proceed to Takayama as we planned. Because this place is not so convenient that busses from all routes run until 7. So we had to stay here. And how could we book the place this urgent? As before, we used Japanican in Thai. We had to pay the fee because we could do nothing. It was not only us but other people at the bus terminal that couldn't go anywhere. The worst part is it was the most expensive rate of accommodation. Cried so hard. HahahaNow it became a joke, not because it's funny but everything was too terrible to be real hahaha. Let's get back to the point. So we stayed at a place near the station because we felt so cold. We sat and rested at Takayama Ouan for almost half night before we could decide on the place. Staffs at Ouan were very nice. They let us sit there warmly and cared for us.That night we had to stay in a business hotel because we were broke from paying for the accommodation that we couldn't stay. So we had to change into rough bed hahaha. We had 3 choices to choose from, of course we had 3 people so we had to decide until we all agreed to stay at a place. Our conditions were: we could stay together for 3 people, close to the station and if possible it should be good and affordable. Here are 3 choices we had.This place popped up in our heads first because we had seen Tutor Too stayed here before. It looked very nice and available for 3 people. But we insisted on being cheap. At first we decided between this place and Takoyama Ouan because it was very beautiful as the tutor stayed here every time. If we shared, it would be 7,560 yen each, higher than regufees' budget like us. But the atmosphere was totally nice.Book special price here!Takayama Green HotelIt looked very beautiful at the front of the hotel.takayama_3Western style roomtakayama_4Ryokan style room. Very nice!takayama_5Best Western Hotel TakayamaThis place was right next to the station like 2 minutes walk. But at that time with heavy snow it took many minutes hahaha.The price was only 4,800 each which is not bad.takayama_6This hotel has only western style rooms which are very large, beautiful and modern.takayama_7There is a big ofuro to bath in but it closes at 10 pm.takayama_8 แล้วอีกที่ๆ อยู่ในปาร์ตี้ลิสของเรา เหอะๆ ที่นี่นะไม่แพงเลย เจ๋งมากๆ ขอบอกAnd the other place that was in our party list is cool and not expensive.It is Hotakaso Yama no Ori5,150 yen per person a nighthhhtakayama_9The room was very beautiful.takayama_10The atmosphere is for those who want to experience Takayama.takayama_11It was in the old city zone.takayama_12And which one is the place we chose? Of course we all agreed because we were tired and we didn't want to walk much and pay a lot. It was snowing heavily and there was no taxi available, so we chose Best Western Hotel Takayama.Our urgent room was nice. 4,800 yen each was ok enough.We had to walk in town next morning because cars stopped running, only busses to Tokyo that we couldn't use at that moment so we had to go to the market again.takayama_13How many days did it continue snowing?? Oh my trip...takayama_14We were thinking about where to go. We walked here one day already so we might go to the different side.takayama_15Snow discouraged us a lot. At the intersection that we asked before knowing that busses were not running. Hahahatakayama_16So we had to choose where to go.takayama_17We walked in the area opposite the morning market that is called little Kyoto. The snow was also very deep there.111We walked back to the market and felt that the snow was deeper than yesterday. But the market was still open.112We didn't enter the market but walked to the shrine behind. There we came across a good stuff.113Hida steamed stuff bun that we thought it was only available at the market. But we could find it here. Many westerners and Japanese people sat inside hiding from the snow.The steamed stuff bun was very big including free tea and seat. The seller was so kind!114We really liked it. But when we sat there, people were gone hahaha.115We really liked it. But when we sat there, people were gone hahaha.116Our team was full and happy. Despite all disaster we had to be full.117There are both sweet and salty flavor. For you who don't eat beef, try the bean one. The flour is very soft.takayama_23We were able to continue walking after the energy from food.118Don't forget when you see this sign. It was not too far from the market. Very delicious.takayama_25We didn't know if the ways would open after snow stopped.takayama_26In the end there came the sun. But it was not a happy ending. We didn't have any bus. We had to change the plan from staying in Kanazawa to Toyama. But we cancelled the hotel at Kanazawa because at the cancellation period we didn't know that these two stations are just 20 minutes close. Not enough research but we could remember well after that hahaha.Admin Nana, Not a guru page
