A few weeks ago, I went to Nagano with my friend Kana for a couple of days!
I have family that lives just outside of Iiyama, and they own a Ski Resort called Kitashiga Komaruyama!
Once there, I went to a delicious Yakiniku restaurant, where I tried kimchi – it was so spicy, I cried!
The next day, I went to Zenkoji and it was so beautiful! I love how pretty the streets are there, everyone is so friendly and polite and I loved the atmosphere. We checked out my cousins’s grape vineyard and got to see a stunning view of Nagano city from the mountain.
We then had lunch at this gorgeous restaurant with my family, and I was really grateful to be able to see them again. It’s been 5 years since the last time I saw my cousins in Nagano, and a lot has changed since then!
I can’t wait to go back to Nagano in the winter-time, so I can do some skiing!
