We arranged to go snow shoeing today. Our guest house host is a mountain guide so he is taking us out for an adventure which is great. We can only do a half day today due to the weather coming in snowy in the afternoon but that is fine, still gives us a taste of it.

Dinner was at another lovely local place just around the corner, Matsuya. We ordered their special pork cutlet with sauce on rice plus the ...

... us much. We decided to go for a little walk around the area. It looked as though there was a park and a few temples which turned out to be a cemetery and a few temples. It was quite nice walking through it with blobs of snow on the ground. Some of the plots were quite historical with information about the people there. After this we started our train journey with our faithful wheels bags. We had to get back to Ueno station to catch the Shinkansen to Nagano. This was only a ...
