Winter Light is one of the most spectacular times of year to visit Japan. Strabo takes you from the hustle and bustle of Kyoto, to mountain villages of Takayama and Kanazawa in the North. Kyoto represents the heart of old Japan. Spend your days with Tillman and a local friend who is an American photographer that has lived in Kyoto for many years. Then move on to the historical mountain village of Takayama, with traditional Gassho style farm houses. Travel further north to Kanazawa. Kanazawa is one of the overlooked jewels of Japanese tourism. Its relatively remote location, off the beaten, has perhaps unfairly contributed to a lower number of foreign tourists. However for those travellers who want to see perhaps the best-preserved major Edo-period city in the country (along with Takayama), it is hard to beat. Japanese history and culture is not just about the temples and shrines. The samurai, the merchants, the geisha, and the lords have all left their mark on Kanazawa in a compact, easily navigable central area. Kanazawa is part of the UNESCO Creative Cities Network as a City of Crafts and Folk Art.
