Craft beer wasn’t the only delicious thing I had on my trip to Nagano. Let’s recap! 今回日本語でも書いてみようと思って、日本語で読む興味がある方がいらっしゃいますか？スノーモンキービアライブのんために長野へのROAD TRIP、行こう！
I finally got to attend the 2013 Snow Monkey Beer Live, an annual craft beer and live music festival in Shiga Kogen, Nagano, which took place from March 16-17.
Regional and seasonal food in Japan is Serious Business.™ When I go on trips, I try to make a point of eating the regional specialties. Nagano is famous for a lot of delicious things. I bought the most delicious and cheapest of apples I’ve had in Japan at a stand with a cash box outside Zenkôji in Nagano City–4 for 200 yen! I discovered that Nagano actually has apricots, which are scanty and expensive in my region. I tried the regional Kit Kat flavors: shichimi, “seven-spice,” and apple.
