Nakajo - The Natural Side of Nagano 自然が豊かな長野にある中条

2017年5月11日

On the outskirts of Nagano City and enroute to Hakuba, you'll find Nakajo.

Nakajo Nanohana.jpgNakajo offers numerous picturesque views of the Japan Alps, which are still covered in snow even in May. They are also running an Artist-in-Residence Program NAGAIR: https://www.city.nagano.nagano.jp/soshiki/geijutsu/131533.html.

Nakajo NAGAIR

Map 1.jpgMap 2.jpgThere are plenty of historic places to see within Nakajo itself. You can even stay in a renovated farmhouse. The traditional, thatched-roof building offers modern amenities amidst the atmosphere of a different time period. Even if you aren't staying, you can still enjoy a meal and view the traditional fire place where the baked oyaki dumplings are prepared. http://yakimochiya.jp/

Public Bath House Alps Onsen, Nagano City 長野市のアルプス温泉(銭湯)

2016年11月24日

Alps_Onsen_Sento

Alps Onsen is about a 10 minute walk from Nagano Station's Zenkoji Exit. Although it is not a natural hot spring, this bath house provides a quiet place to warm yourself during the cold Nagano winter. The facility itself is quite old, but the staff are friendly and the changing and bathing areas are clean.

The cost to enter is 380 yen, and towel rentals are free. Payment is made via cash only to the older woman who oversees both the male and female bathing areas (She is able to view both the men's and women's sides).

Unlike at some older hot spring facilities, you will find shoe lockers and lockers for valuables. Shampoo, conditioner, and body soap are not included, so you will need to bring your own or purchase some available on site. Other amenities such as razors are also available for purchase. You can use the hair dryer there for 20 yen.

The bath water is kept very hot in order to help kill bacteria. There are faucets to add cold water, but be sure to try and ask any other bathers first before turning on a faucet. Older bathers especially may become upset that cold water is being added.

Typically you rinse off before entering the bath briefly to warm your body. After this you can then proceed to wash your hair etc. If you are not used to bathing in such hot water, do not remain in for extended periods of time as you may become light-headed.

Hours
2:00pm - 10:30pm

You can take the local city bus "Gururin-go" for 150 yen from any stop on the line and get off at Showadori 昭和通り. The last Gururin-go bus bound for Nagano Station picks up from Showadori at 7:51pm.  https://www.alpico.co.jp/access/nagano/gururin/

Things to be aware of before entering the park:

公園に入る前に注意すること:

1. Wear appropriate shoes! Waterproof boots can be rented at the park entrance for ¥500, but sizes and stock cannot be guaranteed. It is about a 25 minute walk to the heart of the park, with many travelers visiting the park throughout the day. The path is narrow and can become very muddy due to melting snow and numerous people walking along the path.

1.適切な靴を履いておきましょう!500円で防水ブーツのレンタルが可能ですが、サイズと有無の確保ができません。大勢の観光客が来ますし、25分ほど歩くのは必要です。林道は狭くて雪が溶けていますし、たくさんの方々が通っているのでぬかるみになる時もあります。

2. You're clothes or baggage might get dirty.

2.おそらく服や荷物が汚れます。

Monkey grab.jpgThe monkeys are not shy and may grab onto your clothes or bags. Do not keep straps or other items dangling from your person or belongings.

猿はシャイではなく、服や荷物を掴む可能性があります。ストラップなどを付けるのをご遠慮ください。

Tucked away in the mountains is the serene Nakajyo. There, you'll find one of Nagano Prefecture's natural monuments, a cedar tree that's estimated to be around 2,000 years old, and temples and shrines full of history.

Locally grown produce allows visitors to indulge in fresh, hearty, and delicious cooking, such as the meals served at Mura-no-eki Tsukushi http://www.naganojoho.jp/food/02/002500.php. You can also try large Oyaki in a Japanese traditional style house, the Yakimochiya http://yakimochiya.jp/

Visiting the Snow Monkeys in Jigokudani (Hell Valley) 地獄谷でスノーモンキーと出会う

2015年2月26日

SnowMonkeyPark2Despite its name, Jigokudani is a picturesque place to visit. I highly recommend paying the park a visit. The monkeys were quite comfortable having people around snapping pictures of them. That being said, it is important to not make sudden movements or loud noises, especially around the mothers with their young.

「地獄谷」と言っても、一度は訪ねるべき景勝の地です。お猿さんは周りの人々に写真を撮られていることに結構慣れていました。それでも、特に赤ちゃんを抱いている母猿の近くで急に動いたり、大きな音を立てたりしないことが大事です。

SnowMonkeyPark3

The park is accessible by both the Nagano Dentetsu Express Snow Monkey Train and Nagano Dentetsu Express bus from Nagano Station. I took an express bus from Nagano Station to Kanbayashi Onsen. The bus boarding point was bus stop number 4 at Nagano Station's East Exit. The schedule from March 14th is available here http://www.nagadenbus.co.jp/robus/2014fuyu/shigawin2.htm. Bus fare is 1,400 yen one-way.

長野駅から長野電鉄バスか長野電鉄特急スノーモンキーで行くことができます。私は長野電鉄特急バスで行きました。長野駅東口の4番乗り場で乗車し、上林温泉で下りました。時刻表はこちらです。http://www.nagadenbus.co.jp/robus/2014fuyu/shigawin2.htmバスの片道料金は1,400円です。

SnowMonkeyPark5From the Kanbayashi Onsen stop it was about a 40 minute walk with signs indicating the way to the monkeys.  Warm clothes and shoes designed for walking over snow and ice are highly recommended. The path can be narrow and slushy depending on the weather. Before beginning the trek into the valley it is possible to rent outerwear such as coats and boots for 500 yen. There is a cafe to eat at just outside of the park, but the closest ATM is at Yudanaka Station.

地獄谷までは看板があり、上林温泉から40分ほど歩きます。小道が狭くなる所があり、天気によってぬかるんでいるので、温かい服と冬用ブーツが必要です。野猿公園の入口では、ジャケットやブーツ等500円でレンタルができます。近くにカフェ等食事ができる場所もありますが、最寄りのATMは湯田中駅にしかありません。

Nozawa Onsen Fire Festival 野沢温泉の道祖神祭り

2015年1月19日

I was lucky enough to be able to attend the Nozawa Onsen Fire Festival last week. Held every January 15th, this festival is truly awe-inspiring. The 25-year-olds protect the base while the 42-year-olds protect the top as the rest of the villagers try to set fire to the platform. I recommend grabbing a space at the back as the front gets particularly crowded, and there is actually an incline which allows for a decent view from a distance.

If you do have a chance to go, please be respectful and attentive to instructions from staff. The increased rowdiness of the crowd over the years has drawn heavy criticism and may lead to limited viewing opportunities in the future.

先週、幸い野沢温泉道祖神祭りを見ることができました。毎年1月15日開催されてこの祭りは本当に素晴らしいものです。人々は社殿正面前に燃え上がる火もとから、たいまつに火を付けようと社殿正面へ攻撃します。火付けをするのは一般村民、それを防いで社殿を守るのが25歳の厄年、社殿の上に上がっているのは42歳厄年の人々です。行く機会があれば、前の方はかなり混んでいるし、勾配があるので、後ろから見ることをおすすめします。

敬意を払い、祭りのスタッフの言うことをよく聞いてください。最近の人々の不適切な行動が強い非難となり、将来的に祭りの見学を制限されてしまうことにつながりかねません。
