Daiza-Hoshi-ike in June

Not much to write about, today.  Just a really great photo of Daiza-hoshi-ike pond that I took on the way back to the house after taking the kids to kindergarten yesterday morning.

Daiza-Hoshi-Ike pond in June 2012

For anyone not familiar with where this pond is, it is on the Togakushi Birdline, the main road taking drivers up from Nagano City to Togakushi.  If you take the Nana-Magari road from the Zenkoji area, you’ll see this pond on the left just as you reach the uppermost part of the climb up the mountain.  If you are coming from the Uematsu area of Nagano City, take the Asakawa Loop Line all the way up and turn left when you get to the Iizuna Kogen Ski Area.  Drive past the Arcadia Hotel (currently closed) and at the stop sign, the pond will be across the street in front of you.

If the weather is nice, spend the day here.  There are plenty of spots to take a walk and have a picnic.

About Robert

Hi everyone! Thank you for visiting Go! Nagano! I have been living in Nagano since 1999 and am now raising a family here. It is truly a great place to be! I am originally from Farmington, Connecticut in the United States of America. I went to college at New York University, majoring in Drama with a primary focus in production and promotion. I minored in music theory. I lived and worked in New York City for a while, but after a few years, I decided I had to get out, and I high-tailed it right out of the country. I literally went to the other side of the world, spending a year in a neighboring prefecture before finally settling down in Nagano. What I found so appealing about Nagano was the relaxed lifestyle and the abundance of natural beauty all around. As an avid hiker, I am always looking for new places to climb up and enjoy the view. And with four children, I am always looking for outdoor activities to do with the kids. In this blog, my hope is to inform future visitors about all the outdoor activites you can take part in around here, from hiking to family friendly activities or anything else going on. I hope you'll come and visit soon!
