On that day you did cycling in Nara (24 Dec based on your trip report), the day temperature was 10 deg Celcius. Still quite comfortable.

btw can anyone advise what hotel prices are like during nov? how much higher?

e.g. feb '13, i stayed at prince shinagawa and kyoto century hotel for ~150/night, how much should i except the price to be like in nov for a hotel in the same range?

for the hotels that are already available for booking in nov, any idea if the stated prices change closer to nov? cos right now, the reflected prices are about 300/night for a kyoto and osaka. that is double the usual price (for the nov period) if i'm not wrong.

$150 is ex? haha that time booked late so no more toyoko inn or very near train station one. otherwise, i think i don't mind toyoko inn since the shinagawa one quite convenient.

It is sufficient to make a day trip to Shirakawa-go from either Takayama or Kanazawa, it's a 1 hour journey from both. Staying there can be quite pricey and the town is completely dead after dark. So you will just be having dinner and spending the evening inside the gassho-zukuri. Are you driving or taking train/bus?

It was fun staying in a gassho-zukuri... the host will usually come talk to you and teach you simple songs and how to play the sasara, while seated around the fire place... it is more about the experience than what you see

We'll be taking public transport. Should we get a 14days pass? Beside kanazawa/takayama, where else can we stay if we want go shirakawago n nagano? Any budget hotel nearby?
