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.
- several bathrooms just inside the entrance
Excuse me again, but I was impressed to see the bathrooms very clean.
