  1. Hi there. Am planning to visti Peter Salter's Kamiichi pavilion soon. Is the Kamiichi where it is in the Toyama district? I have found three Kamiichis so far!

    Many thanks for your help

  2. David - Yes, the pavilion is in the Toyama District, specifically the eastern half of Kamiichi-machi. Unfortunately it's lo-res in Google Earth, but I can scan a small map I have that will show you how to get there...though it's in Japanese. E-mail me (link at bottom of page) if you want it. It's not easy to find, though it's well worth it!

    Also, here's some more information and images on my weekly page.
