After a 115km ride we arrived in Gujo where I’d managed to book accommodation for tomorrow and not tonight. It is Golden Week in Japan when everyone goes on holiday so consequentially there’s no where to stay in this tiny mountain town.
Luckily we had the tent and were directed to camp in a tiny park next to the roaring river. Other locals had done the same and we were surprisingly happy to be back in our portable home.
We managed to eat two dinners this evening we were so hungry! We’d only had some noodles and sushi for lunch and after a delicious set dinner of rice, pickles, grilled chicken, salad and miso soup still needed more sustenance. We found a burger joint with an upstairs bar and a DJ playing 70’s disco and ate Japanese burgers made with wasabi. Just what we needed.
