Well, summer break isn’t over yet.
But I’ve just got back from a week of travelling throughout Nagano!

Also summer break is just a little over 2 weeks, as it started on Aug 1st, and ends on Aug 18th. Unfortunate, but everything is messed up this year because of the ‘rona.

So I tried to come up with some other things that I hadn’t known.

Even these points probably have been mentioned before.
But they’re pretty minor things, so maybe not!

Yomu in Japan: Nagano Edition

As I mentioned last time, I’m no longer in Tokyo.
I’ve since moved to Nagano prefecture!

At this point I’m closer to Japan’s northern shores than the southern ones, and quite far away from Tokyo.

As you’d expect of Nagano, there are mountains all around.

Let’s get a post theme in here:
