Stranded in the snow

A travel blog entry by suebar


... borrow umbrellas and without them we think we would have looked like walking snowmen before long. The snow was very deep but the shop keepers and the gardeners at the temple were already out clearing paths through the snow. We had an English speaking Japanese guide leading us around the temple. We walked through the main gates and into the grounds and then to the main hall where having removed our boots we walked up the side towards the main alter before descending some very ...

Snow, monkeys and the bullet train

A travel blog entry by suebar


... last tickets are issued at 4:00. Our tour leader had phoned ahead to the ticket office and managed to persuade them to stay open, so we got in. By the time we got there the hot spring where the monkeys bathe was being brushed clean and the monkeys had left it so we didn't see any monkeys in the water. That was disappointing.

Not interested in fashion, we wandered past many stores, and continued to wonder why the reviews made such a big deal out of this place. "A great place to spend a day" ...

Day 12 - Nagano. Now we're cold.

To be honest I know there is snow monkeys somewhere around here, and I have a feeling that there is a ropeway around here somewhere that is worth taking a look at, but other than that, aside from skiing, and a temple a few kilometers walk from here, I'm not sure what's around here to do. I guess I'm about to find out.
