Thank you for working with us again this year to promote tourists to Nagano!

Hello, everyone!

Thank you so much for reading Nagano’s official email newsletters.
In this issue, please find our recommendations for Nagano’s spring specials (from March to May).

The ski season has finally started in Nagano, and many people are enjoying it right now. When spring comes, snow melts and trees start to bud. In around mid-March, you start to hear flower reports one by one. Pheasant’s-eyes that put their little heads through the snow, and eranthis pinnatifidas (Setsubun-sou, “end of winter flower,” in Japanese) herald the arrival of long-awaited spring. After mid-April, the sun starts to get stronger day by day, and the Cherry Blossom Front, which was in the southern tip of Japan, quickly moves up northward, covering Nagano with cherry colors. It is a true joy of Nagano to see plum, cherry, peach blossoms as well as canolas and daffodils bloom all at once against the backdrop of blue skies and ridgelines of mountains capped with white snow. In Nagano, you can also ski in some ski grounds in spring. Only in Nagano you can enjoy spring flowers and mountain snow at the same time!

Please read this month’s email newsletter, and enjoy spring in Nagano feeling spring breeze on your cheeks. I am sure many wonderful people will be waiting for you in Nagano!

In this issue, I introduced flower and spring festivals in Nagano. I hope you liked it!

Of all seasons, I love spring the best. I love spring landscapes, clear air, blue skies, and rain. Spring rain reminds me of my childhood adventures into the forest behind my elementary school. I used to explore it on a rainy day holding an umbrella in my hand. The sound of rain, raindrops gathered on leaves, rain falling from the roof, and falling rain dancing on the river… everything was refreshing and exciting for me. When the rain stopped, the whole world was a new creation. The earth was full of infinite lives. Probably I love Nagano because I found my childhood memories here. Nagano, though simple and rustic, is full of abundant nature, and home of my heart.

Why don’t you experience Nagano with all of your senses too?

 这次为您介绍了一些长野县的春季花卉节、春祭典活动等,是否对您有帮助?

 一年四季中我最喜欢的季节是春季。春天的景色、清新的空气、万里无云的晴空,还有让我兴奋不已的雨景。记得小时候,丝丝春雨中一个人打着一把大伞跑到小学校的后山去探险。吸引我的蒙蒙细雨声、落在树叶上的清澈雨滴、沿着房顶哗哗流下来的雨水、掉进河里水花四溅的雨、、、、一切的一切对我来说都新鲜无比,让我欢欣雀跃。雨停后,万物焕然一新,给大地带来无限的生机。

在长野一定是因为我找到了难以忘怀的童年时光,故让我深深地爱上了这里的山,这里的水、、、淳朴,雅静的长野,自然资源得天独厚的长野如今已扎根在我的心灵深处。
您也不妨亲自来访感受一下!

 一年四季中我最喜歡的季節是春季。春天的風景、清新的空氣、萬里無雲的晴空,還有讓我興奮不已的雨景。記得小時候,絲絲春雨中常常一個人打著一把大傘,跑到小學校的後山去探險。吸引我的濛濛細雨聲、落在樹葉上的清澈雨滴、沿著屋檐嘩嘩流下來的雨水、掉進河裡水花四濺的雨、、、、一切的一切對我來說都新鮮無比,讓我歡欣雀躍。雨停後,萬物煥然一新,給大地帶來的無限的生機。

在長野一定是因為我找到了難以忘懷的童年時光,故讓我深深地愛上了這裡的山、這裡的水、、、淳樸、雅靜的長野,自然資源得天獨厚的長野如今已紮根在我的心靈深處。

Hello, every one!
Thank you so much for reading the fall issue of Nagano Prefecture’s Official Tourism Email Newsletter!
Today we will send you great tourism information about the winter season (from December of February) in Nagano.

In Nagano, some mountain tops had the first snowfall in early October, sending us signs of winter. Winter is definitely Nagano’s attraction. We have different winter weather from place to place, because Nagano is 212km long from North to South. For example, Nagano City in the Northern Nagano may be covered with heavy snow on the day Matsumoto in the center of Nagano has cloudy skies and Ina in Southern Nagano has clear, blue skies with warm sunshine. This is what Nagano’s weather is like, with totally different winter facades.
Please read our email newsletter and enjoy Nagano in the winter wonderland~♪。

 During the “Silver Week” in September, when we have many holidays, I visited my sister in Saitama for the first time in eight years. I was very surprised to see that even at 12 midnight, there were so many vehicles and people on the streets, and that 24-hour restaurants were packed with guests. I was even more surprised that a bunch of grapes from Nagano was sold for 4,000 yen there! I realized how blessing it is to live in Nagano rich with nature. In September, our mornings and evenings started to be very cool. In our yard we can smell sweet aroma of fragrant olives. We can see grasshoppers hop during the day, and at night, clear, peaceful sounds of bell crickets give us such peaceful moments, and gently surround us until we forget how much time has passed. Nagano’s “nostalgic” beauty never stops fascinating us.
In the next email newsletter, I will send you some Spring information about March to May. Please don’t miss it!

Hello, every one!
Thank you so much for reading the fall issue of Nagano Prefecture’s Official Tourism Email Newsletter!
Today we will send you great tourism information about the winter season (from December of February) in Nagano.

In Nagano, some mountain tops had the first snowfall in early October, sending us signs of winter. Winter is definitely Nagano’s attraction. We have different winter weather from place to place, because Nagano is 212km long from North to South. For example, Nagano City in the Northern Nagano may be covered with heavy snow on the day Matsumoto in the center of Nagano has cloudy skies and Ina in Southern Nagano has clear, blue skies with warm sunshine. This is what Nagano’s weather is like, with totally different winter facades.
Please read our email newsletter and enjoy Nagano in the winter wonderland~♪。

大家近来一切都好吗?
谢谢各位阅读秋季版长野县电子杂志。
接下来,为您送去冬季(12月至2月)的长野观光信息。

10月初的长野山上初降雪,山顶上已戴上了白雪帽。今年的冬季又无声地到来。而,冬季也正是长野的最大魅力。南北相距212公里的长地形为独特的地貌,由此,长野冬季的天气因地区而异。比如:北边的长野市是大雪纷飞的银色世界,位于中心部的松本一带只是阴云天空,而南边的伊那山谷一带却晴空万里。这就是长野之冬。同一天里气候却会因地区而有天大之差。
希望过目本冬季版电子杂志,和我们一起来行走长野,纵情地享受银色世界长野之乐~♪。

 利用9月的长休,到住在埼玉县的姐姐家。这是时隔八年到姐姐家来玩。夜已深,12点的外面仍车辆来往不断、人来人往,24小时营业的餐厅里数不清的顾客饮食絮语。最让我吃惊的是长野产的一串葡萄在这里竟卖到4,000日元!让我再次深深地体会到住在自然资源丰富的长野是多么的幸福。9月的长野早晚显著地冷起来,散发着金桂的浓郁芳香的院子里,白天蝗虫四处蹦跳、晚上金钟儿奏出凉夜小曲,月色朦胧的静夜勾出一幅画一般的迷人夜色,让人忘记所有烦恼。仿佛记忆中的「难以忘怀的家乡」似的长野之美吸引着人们的来访并让人们为长野而陶醉。
春季信息将会在下刊(3月至5月)向您介绍,敬请期待。

大家近來一切都好嗎?
謝謝各位閱讀秋季版長野縣電子雜誌。
接下來,為您送去冬季(12月至2月)的長野觀光信息。

10月初的長野山上初降雪,山頂上已經戴上了白雪帽。今年的冬季又無聲地到來。而,冬季也正是長野的最大魅力。南北相距212公里的長地形為獨特的地貌,由此,長野冬季的天氣因地區而異。比如:北邊的長野市是大雪紛飛的銀色世界、位於中心部的松本一帶只是陰云天空,而南邊的伊那山谷一帶卻晴空萬里。這就是長野之冬。同一天裡氣候會因地區而有天大之差。
希望過目本冬季版電子雜誌,和我們一起來行走長野,縱情地享受銀色世界長野之樂~♪。
