Pics from Gifu, Japan
Posted Jul 23 2007
Pics from various spots in the Gifu Prefecture, mostly in Ogaki. As noted elsewhere, I was participating in a study program, courtesy of the Japanese government, who treated us like royalty. A part of our trip was spent visiting schools, learning about their education system, but we also got exposure to plenty of cultural activities, ranging from traditional cormorant fishing, which I learned that Charlie Chaplin came to watch, The Gifu City History Museum, Gifu University, Gifu Grand Hotel and plenty of good eats. We also got to relax in some hot springs. No pics of that though, as you couldn't even wear your birthday suit!
