Hello, how was your weekend? I hope there wasn't any damage from the big typhoon. My husband and I went to Togakushi in Nagano Prefecture, and we enjoyed hiking, bird watching and eating local food at there. Have you ever been to Togakushi? Actually it was second visit for us. We really liked there last year, so visited again. And I think we will go to there every year maybe, because Togakushi is so beautiful and we can relax. So, I'd like to share some photos with you today. I’m happy if you enjoy these photos.
Togakushi Forest Botanical Park(戸隠森林植物園) 森林浴～♪
Skunk cabbage 水芭蕉がとてもキレイでした。
Specular Pond(鏡池) 湖面が鏡のよう。戸隠連峰に垂れこめた雲も神秘的。
It is said a power spot, and there is ancient cedars line the path to Okusha Shrine from the gate. パワースポットと言われる戸隠奥社への 入り口。
These cedars are more than four hundred years old! 樹齢400年を超える杉並木の逞しさと厳かな雰囲気は圧巻！
Buckwheat noodle(戸隠蕎麦)/そばの実 次は新そばの時期に行きたい！
We had a wonderful trip, and I gained weight though we walked a lot, because all food and the clear atmosphere were so delicious! So I have to go on a diet. However, I recommend to go to Togakushi!(^^)!
