Snowball Fight in Iizuna

Snowball Fight in Iizuna

Today in the park next to Daiza Hoshi Ike pond, there is an event going on that is bringing a lot of visitors beside skiers and snowboarders. It is an organized snowball fight, The Exciting Snowball Fight in Iizuna. Sponsored by Nagano Broadcasting (NBS), the event features 30 teams battling it out for the championship spot. The challenge is set up much like “Capture the Flag”. Team members try to get to the opposing team’s flag and capture it without getting hit by the other team’s snowballs.

More information (Japanese only, sorry) is available at the NBS website.

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!
