I've been trying to experience as much of Japan as I can before we take off in March. Last weekend, some friends invited us to go to Kiso Valley, a famous spot in Nagano Ken that's only about an hour away.  Here are some photos that I got from Subari.  Our camera didn't have a memory card in it that day (doh!).

Subari says that these are old samurai hotels.

This was supposed to be a cool picture of us with an ice sculpture.  Instead, it is a testament to how  unphotogenic we really are.

We walked along Naraijuku, a street famous for its Edo-period buildings.
We ate in this nice restaurant, which was built over 150 years ago.

It was a really lovely day.  We ate oyaki, went into shops selling famous Kiso wood crafts, and soaked up the Japanese-ness of it all.

A little over a month left in Japan.  I will miss it so very much.
