That's going to be a fun trip, Jeff. If you'd like to see some photos of where you might be going, please go to http://www.billk.org and click on the link button number 5.

On the top of the page are several photos of Shirakawago in the snow.

Below the sumo photos and Kabukicho shots you will see a photo of the Wide View Hida limited express train arriving at Gero station bound for Takayama.

After that are several photos of Takayama. The farmhouses are in the Hida no Sato in Takayama which I recommend visiting if you don't go to Shirakawago.

The last 17 photos on the page show Kamikochi. The photos are from the easy walking path along the river, but I believe that there is some serious hiking nearby. There are a couple of hotels there with public access to their baths.

Congrats on the wedding and have a great trip!
