I had to take my son, who had to take the exam for a driver’s  license,to Shiojiri city the other day.

We have 2 major registration centers for driver’s license in Nagano pref.

North “Driver’s License Center” in Shinonoi( near Nagano city), and

South”Driver’s license Center” in Shiojiri.( near Matsumoto city)

Shiojiri is a bit nearer from my place than the other, so I drove the 2 hrs highway ride to Shiojiri city.

You see, Nagano is indeed large! And mountainous,too.

Anyway, while I was waiting for my son, I took the opportunity and visit Daio Wasabi Farm which recently had been granted   1 star by Michelin.

It is in Azumino city, 30 minutes’ drive from Shiojiri( via highway, maybe 50 minutes on the ordinary route).

I was biting into the wasabi croquette while reading a board explaining the origin of the name,”Daio ” when my cell phone rang.

” Mom, I need another 3000yen to pay for ‘ Traffic Safety Co-op.”
Money again! even to get a single driver’s license.
