Sake Break, Takayama

Posted by

Time out from sightseeing in Takayama, Gifu prefecture. In some of the sake breweries here, tourists can sample sake while warming themselves in front of an irori hearth.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!
