Hiroshi showed me the samurai way as we walked the post road. Try on a samurai helmet in the amazing museum. Visit a restored 18-room inn that hosted the emperor of Japan 150 years ago. See how the innkeeper lived, who sat where around the fire & why the DIL got the most uncomfortable tatami. Learn how fires were fought with cisterns & buckets- crucial when your house is made of wood & paper. Hiroshi even arranged a tea ceremony in the Buddhist temple (he knows the monk). Thank you for a wonderful tour!
