======================================

Right now, Nagano Shinkansen is connecting Tokyo and Nagano, but on March 14, 2015, it will be extended to Kanazawa, changing its name to Hokuriku Shinkansen.

Nagano will have another Shinkansen station in Iiyama, the one after Nagano Station to go to Kanazawa. Iiyama station is getting ready to welcome tourists from overseas with a visitor center, free Wi-Fi and a free cell phone charging service. Please come and visit Iiyama!

 ~One last thing

It’s been getting cooler and cooler in Nagano, especially in the morning and at night. This means that leaves are turning all over Nagano! There are over 160 places in Nagano, where you can enjoy autumn leaves!

After those pretty leaves fall, the winter sports season comes. I can’t wait! I get up early even on my days off to enjoy the powder first thing in the morning!

In the next spring issue for March to June, I will give you more detailed information about extended Hokuriku Shinkansen, new Iiyama Station and tourist sites around the new station. Don’t miss it!
