What to do in 48 hours:

- Stay in a ryokan and have a traditional dinner
- Buy a sarubobo (good luck amulet)
- Walk the Higashiyama Walking Course into a forest, through cemeteries and past temple after temple. It's truly a spectacular trail

- Check-out Shiroyama Park
- visit the Hida Folk Village
