Kiso part 2: Ghibli houses

image
We went out of the bus and walked to the village. The first cute thing we saw was the watermill.
image
The halved three trunk is used to supply the water for the mill. Funny huh?
image
Tsumago village. Looks coming out straight from a studio Ghibli movie.

image
At least you can be sure the roof is not going to fly away.

image

image
Close up of the roof.

image
We saw this hanging from the roof of a temple. When it rains the water trickles down via this way.

image
Peaceful and quiet.

image
Everything is a dildo if you are brave enough.

image
A bucket for monsieur.

image
Araldo wanted to too the trip by horseback. Lazy guy.

image
Little house in a rice field.

image
I never saw so many dragonflies as in Japan.

image
6.9 km to go in the mountains. So far.

image
Look at the clear water. I want to refresh myself because it is so damn hot outside.

image
image

image
I believe I can fly.

image
Si si, ariba aribaaaa.

image
All along the way you could find bear bells like this to scare bears away.

image
I rang the bell and my ears started to bleed. I thought about the poor bears who have to listen to these bells all day long. They musthave headaches.

image
Water cascades. I loooove them. This is the 'female' waterfall.

image
This is the 'male' one.

image
Beautiful flowers.

image
Follow the ape.

image
Pandaliscious boyfriend.

image
Very big cypress threes around here.
image
We came to the conclusion we did the hike in the least favourable way: 6 km uphill and 2 km downhill. Here we finally reached the top.

image

image
Already the second snake we encountered this afternoon. We were very hungry so...

image
...we caught it and had a nice appetizer.

image
After the well deserved rest we continued, descending into the second village Magome.

image
From one of the houses we saw a old hornets nest. It is considers a delicatess to eat the larves of the hornets.

Leftovers.
