Friday 28th July 2006
Got the Shinkansen from Tokyo in the evening, went out for a couple of drinks in the centre of Nagano, and stayed the night at a hotel next to the station.

Saturday 29th July 2006
Spent the morning and early afternoon in Nagano city. Had a guided tour of Zenkoji temple, and then shojin ryori (buddhist monk's food) in one of the outlying buildings. After that we headed over to a town called Obose and tried our hand at glass engraving. We then rounded off the afternoon going for a bit of a drive to look at some waterfalls.

Sunday 30th July 2006
Had a lazy morning lolling around Junchan's house, then went out for lunch with Junchan's sister. We then spent the rest of the afternoon on another driving tour in the mountains. Stopped off a few times to take in the sights - including another waterfall, a giant outdoor escalator, Japan's highest bakery, and finally a volcano with a weird milky blue lake.

Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th July 2006
Some video clips I took during the weekend.
