LPGA NEC Karuizawa 72

Two weeks ago, I went to see a golf match the other day –  the NEC Karuizawa 72 (seven-two) Golf Tournament on the LPGA of Japan Tour, held in 72 North Course. I and my son entered before 10AM. It was Friday, but there was alreay a number of visitors. Ai Miyazato (fresh from her breakthrough win at Evian and T3 at the Women’s British Open), Momoko Ueda who came off previous week’s win on tour and other big players including Akiko Fukushima and Sakura Yokomine were there. The 72 North (Kita) Course is 6637 yards, par 72. The 72 consists of 4 well run courses. The North Course is just one of them. Some people say some holes on the course are boring but I believe that you never forget its beatiful landscape and good layout. So if you golf or big fan, it’s worth a visit. Don’t ask me if I scored good on the course. Well, sorry I’ve never played there. *_*;;  Wish to be able to clearly report on my score at this blog within 10 years… Photos and videos are not allowed inside. So I just took one shot at the entrance.

About Shuichiro (Inactive)

My name is Shu Ono and I became self-employed 4 years ago and started my own tourism business called Jissen Inbound. I just wanted to introduce myself and my travel journal which I will try my best to keep updated with all my trips in Nagano (both business and pleasure. Just a little about myself: I'm originally from Osaka, Japan, the second largest city in Japan. But after graduation from an university in Tokyo, I spent about 4 years in other coutnries - Australia, USA and England. Please don't ask me which food I like - fish & chips or hamburger. :) I like Japanese foods very much. Recently I'm really interested in Japanese calligraphy andI play golf which I hope to do so this coming summer in Nagano. Also I love traveling Japan. I'm happy with what I'm doing in business because my clients are usually ryokans and hotels in coutryside including Nagano. I hope to use my experiences to make contributions to the Nagano tourism blog site. TKsyusyu
