Another nice big snow dump last night.  A cooling pic for our Ozzy compatriots experiencing 47 degrees C just now!

Thatched roof village in the snow

January 28, 2017

One of the villages along the old Saba-kaido trading route in Shiga running between Kyoto and the Sea of Japan coast to the north.  Unfortunately a lot of the distinctive traditional kayabuki houses now have their thatches covered by tiles or sheeting as re-thatching them is so incredibly expensive.  Thatched roofs are great for the winter – excellent insulators!

Tunnel of bamboo bearing the weight of today’s bump along our main access almost had us snowed in this evening.  Plenty of pot noodles in the storage, back-up genny fuelled up and dusted off.
