Nikko yesterday, it was great but a long day so no report yet. Today we are going to Takayama to stay in a ryokan and will be without internet access until probably Friday afternoon, when we plan to arrive in Osaka and spent the night before flying out of KIX Saturday afternoon.
(The typhoon appears not to be a problem. I hope. *crosses fingers*)
Look for further reports--and answers to comments, I promise--in a few days.
