The Hida Express Furoshiki


The Hida Express is a limited express train that runs from Toyoma to Takayama through the Japanese Alps. On this journey, all sense of time and orientation seemed to disappear as we snaked, sped, crawled, ambled, rocketed and twisted through mountain upon mountain, every turn revealing rushing rivers and glinting waterfalls only momentarily glanced.
