Summer Holiday

magazine 1

“100 mountain passes of japan”

magazine 2

shiga-kusatsu road

already august.

as with years past, i’m taking a break for the rest of the month at my grandparents’ farm in nagano.  it’ll be time away from the computer, away from town and away from the heat and humidity of saitama, where things i want to do will take precedence over things i maaaybe ought to be doing…

the difference this year is that i’m heading there not on the shinkansen, but on my motorcycle– yeah!  the route i’m planning includes the shiga-kusatsu road, a route high in the mountains of gunma and nagano and in fact, passes the highest point of the national highway at an altitude of 2172m.  and once i’m there, there are lots of other great mountain passes to explore too.  it’ll be an adventure for sure…!

and with that, i’m on my way– i’ll see you in september!

梅雨が明けたと思ったらもう8月。

今年も長野の田舎の実家で夏休みを過ごします。パソコンをしまって、町から離れて、埼玉の苦しい暑さを逃れて。慌ただしい毎日をあとに、今月末までゆったりとした時間を過ごしてこようと思います。

今までと違うのは今回は新幹線ではなくバイクで行くこと。それも国道最高地点を通過する志賀草津道路も走る予定。長野に着いたら他にもたくさんの峠道があるしね...!初めての県外ツーリングを前にテンション上昇中です☆

それではまた9月に。みなさんも良い夏を!
