Well Preserved

Takayama is known for its many well preserved older homes, buildings,
and several shrines and temples with a walking path between them.
(sometimes rather strenuous walks up and down many many stairs!)
The whole town has an air of nostalgia and is like a piece of jewelry,
or a non-commercial little souvenir, an ideal memory to treasure that had not been harmed much by people’s conflicts over time. Still standing.
