Back From Nagano With Memories

Sorry, its been a few days since my last blog entry. I had just returned from Nagano, Japan with my friend Yohko. While over there, we received a very warm welcome from Ayako, (Yohko's friend from her old college). She was so full of energy when she met us at the Nagano Station. Our first stop, because it was lunch time when we arrived, was to go to Obuse (wiki link), a town on the outskirts of Nagano City. We arrived at Chiku Fu Doh Restaurant. This restaurant serves a glutinous rice mixed with the finest chestnuts of Nagano and it is famous all over Japan. Normally, we wouldn't wait 20 minutes to be seated but this was an exception as did everyone who entered didn't mind the long wait.

Indeed, I enjoyed it. Especially the side dishes that were picked from the wild. Thank you, Ayako. God bless your heart!
