Today I sent information about Nagano’s various summer activities. I hope you enjoyed it.
I would like to say this again: Nagano’s summer is SO refreshing. It does not get muggy, since there is no humidity. During the morning walk by the stream, you will feel the air so clear, and hear the stream murmur in the morning stillness. What luxury! And the water coming out of the faucet is cold even in the summer. Please feel the blessings of nature throughout your body!
I have lived in Nagano for 25 years now. In the summer, my neighbors leave fresh cucumbers, tomatoes, eggplants and other fresh vegetables at the entrance of our home. On my way home from a bicycle ride with my child, I met a friend, who gave me sweet-smelling peaches. Such a relationship is so rare in big cities, and makes me feel so comforted.
As I provide you with Nagano’s tourism info, I come to find more beauties of Nagano each time, and there is a lot more in Nagano. I almost wish I could keep all information to myself, since Nagano is so comforting, but I know it is not fair. I will continue to share the blessings of the great nature of Nagano with all of you!

Hello, every one!
Thank you so much for reading the fall issue of Nagano Prefecture’s Official Tourism Email Newsletter!
Today we will send you great tourism information about the winter season (from December of February) in Nagano.

In Nagano, some mountain tops had the first snowfall in early October, sending us signs of winter. Winter is definitely Nagano’s attraction. We have different winter weather from place to place, because Nagano is 212km long from North to South. For example, Nagano City in the Northern Nagano may be covered with heavy snow on the day Matsumoto in the center of Nagano has cloudy skies and Ina in Southern Nagano has clear, blue skies with warm sunshine. This is what Nagano’s weather is like, with totally different winter facades.
Please read our email newsletter and enjoy Nagano in the winter wonderland~♪。

 During the “Silver Week” in September, when we have many holidays, I visited my sister in Saitama for the first time in eight years. I was very surprised to see that even at 12 midnight, there were so many vehicles and people on the streets, and that 24-hour restaurants were packed with guests. I was even more surprised that a bunch of grapes from Nagano was sold for 4,000 yen there! I realized how blessing it is to live in Nagano rich with nature. In September, our mornings and evenings started to be very cool. In our yard we can smell sweet aroma of fragrant olives. We can see grasshoppers hop during the day, and at night, clear, peaceful sounds of bell crickets give us such peaceful moments, and gently surround us until we forget how much time has passed. Nagano’s “nostalgic” beauty never stops fascinating us.
In the next email newsletter, I will send you some Spring information about March to May. Please don’t miss it!

 My name is Megumi Moriyama. I have been in charge of the newsletters since April. I was born and grew up in China, where my father is from. It’s been already 30 years since I moved to Japan, where my mother is from. Are you wondering how old I am? (It’s a secret!) My mother is not from Nagano, but from Nagoya, Nagano’s neighbor. I have been there only once.
Guided by a strange destiny, I came to live in Nagano, and it’s been already 24 years. Nagano is full of rich nature and full of wonderful places. I would like to introduce all of them to you, but the space is limited! I have been in agony these days…
I will try to send you as much information as possible.
Please continue to get to know Nagano through my newsletter.
Next time, I will send you another newsletter with a winter issue (from November to March). Don’t miss it!

The period from mid-June to early July has the most varieties of flowers in the year. The woods in Kamikochi are suddenly full of life with the arrival of migratory birds then.

The Akasawa Natural Recreational Forest is a natural forest with over 300-year-old hinoki cypress trees. This is the birthplace of forest therapy, and also counted as one of the three most beautiful forests in Japan. As you walk along their eight natural trails, you can rest your mind and body, seeing Iwana char fish in the streams and delicate small flowers in the grass. Hearing refreshing running water and singing birds on the trees are soothing.

━━━◆◇ Fun on the River ◆◇━━━
 △▲△ Canoeing △▲△
Even if you might be a beginner, canoe touring is a fun and relaxing activity providing a dynamic view of mountain ranges and seasonal landscapes. We guarantee that you will safely have fun on the river with instructions by a tour guide.
Information Sheet

△▲△ Rafting △▲△
Rafting is an especially popular water sport on the river. Everybody goes down the limpid stream flowing from the Northern Alps on the large rubber raft, working together steering the raft with a paddle. It is a lot of fun to go through different sections of the river, such as a thrilling rapid stream where you barely miss a large rock, and a more quiet section where you can float enjoying a relaxing murmur of the brook. Don’t worry about safety even if you are a beginner, because a professional tour guide will lead your way.

△▲△ Clear Bottom Boat △▲△
After visiting Daio Wasabi Farm, why don’t you enjoy floating on the river on a clear bottom boat? You can enjoy the limpid stream of spring water which goes through the Azumino Wasabi Farm Springs Zone, which was chosen one of the 100 best springs in Japan. Don’t worry about getting wet. You can ride the clear boat as you are. Good for all ages, and for both men and women.
