Nagano Prefecture is a mountainous region with beautiful landscapes and wide open spaces. In Nagano, you can find many wonders like very old wooden jinja (shrines) preserved quite well, old tombs covered with moss, and snow-white flowers growing in brooks. One of my most favorite towns of Japan is Matsumoto with its Castle, scenic views of the mountains in snow, and quiet life is. In the countryside of Nagano, you will meet just a few locals and no tourists with cameras! Nagano is also famous for onsen. I was first introduced to onsen in Nagano and enjoyed it since the very first time. Having visited Nagano once, I always want to come back!

I love Japan very much! I like small towns of Japan where I can watch people doing their business and talk to them carefully. They're always friendly. I like Japanese gardens where I can just sit or walk and take my time. Also I like Shinto Jinja as being there I feel in peace. I like to watch sunsets and then to dine in some small local places. I like to soak into onsen after a long day of wandering. I like Japanese crafts very much as all items are made with great taste and skill. Nihon wo daisuki desuyo!
