 I made a short trip to Obuse, Nagano yesterday.  The couple that I have known who live in Ueda area invited me to spend a night at Obuse.  I took Nagano Shinkansen to Ueda where they met me.  I did not know where we were going, but it was 1-hour drive to Obuse. 

 I could not see well as it was already dark when we got to Obuse, but Obusedo, the facilities (accommodation and restaurant) were great.  I met with the person who initiatived the Obuse project to put the place on the map.  I had heard of Obuse, its Sake, Hokusai and others briefly, but did not realize the whole scope of the initiative.

  I enjoyed great food, and wine grown in the area, but the best part was the conversation. It was interesting, informative and very stimulating. 

  This morning, the couple took me around by car to see the colors around Sugadaira area which is known for excellent skiing.   It was a short trip, but very exciting and full of inspiration. I feel very refreshed and relaxed.
