Trip to Nagano for enjoying Autumn leaves !

I went on a trip to Nagano for 3 days and 2 nights last month.
I had two purposes. First, for looking Yonako Great Falls. And second, for eating soba at “Sekizawa” that is so famouse soba restaurant.

I wanted to save transportation and accommodation expenses, so I took highway bus and stayed at dormitory room.
I stayed at Suzaka. My accommodation was “Guest House KURA”

My plan was…
1st day    Arriving at Nagano sta. , sightseeing at Obuse, stay at Suzaka
2nd day   Seeing Yonako Big Falls and onsen, stay at Suzaka
3rd day   Eating soba at “Sekizawa”, sightseeing at Zenko-ji temple and going back to home

But, it was first day of 3 day weekend, so my bus arrival at Nagano station was severely delayed.
I arrived at Nagano over 1:00 p.m. I gave up going to Obuse and I decided going to Suzaka directly.
But before that, my stomach was empty. I get motion sickness easily, so I didn’t eat in the bus. Of course, I didn’t have breakfast, too.
So, on arriving at Nagano station, I went to eat meal first.

Famous products of Nagano is miso. This miso ramen (味噌らぁめん, 650 yen) was used the good quality miso.

味噌がおいしいです さすが長野(・ω・´)

It was so tasty.  There was no taste like fishes, vegetables or meats. But I felt the plenty taste of miso itself. Good miso made the ramen so tasty. For spicy food lovers, the ramen shop serves spicy miso ramen 🙂

I also ordered a boiled egg. I had thought my boiled egg come in my bowl, but it came in its shell.
My neighborhood ate her boiled egg with salt.
I saw her and I did, too.

After I got full, I took a Nagano Electric Railway train to Suzaka station.

I arrived at Suzaka so earlier than expected, So ,at first, I went to my accommdation to leave my luggage and then I went to sightseeing at Suzaka.
I didn’t have the plan to see something at Suzaka, so, I didn’t know where to go. But the landlord of an inn introduced me some good places.

There are much old storehouses that is called “Kura”, so I felt I was in Edo period just walking along the street.

It is wooden Western-style architecture built in Taisyo Period. I’m afraid it will fall down if severe earthquake occur (>_<)

Photography is prohibited in the museum, and outfit for a bride of wealthy merchant from last Edo period to early Showa era was exhibited in the museum that day. It is held until December 2nd.

Many kimono was so gorgeous 😀 But I also thought those kimono is so heavy…

After that I went back to my accommadation.
On my way to my accommodation, I found some Japanese sake-works 😀
Main products of Suzaka is miso, soy sauce, honey and Japanese sake !
Those products are heavy, so not good for souvenir though those are tasty.
