Echigo Yuzawa Kagura snowing!! Niigata

テーマ:Going out!

Bala-san asked me to bring him to snowing. I am not an age for enjoying snowboarding,

but I decided to go there because Yuzawa town sightseeing association and Shirataki brewery

had supported for our party before.



Actually I used to work as a snowboarding instructor in my hometown for 4 years. I used to

taught how to enjoy it, about over 500 person in a year.



JR View has the tour includes the fee of Shinkansen bullet train round tickets and also the ticket to

use the lift at ski park for just 8,900yen for weekday!





Kagura ski-park was snowing so much, but snow condition was not bad! Actually I came from

Tohoku, so it was quite heavy snow compare to Zao mountain.


I never wear a grove when I am doing snowing, so everybody ask me why I can survive such a coldness without a grove. Because I never fall down. BUT, four years back, I got falled. So I decided to wear it, but their rental doesn't have a item of grove, so I passed to Eric-san.



My friend Kimura-san helped to my snowing with sending some of the parts, because I never

did for 4 years, because it is a big event for Tokyo people to go to snowboarding. In Sendai,

about 40 min, we could go to ski park, so we used to do snowboarding after working.

Niigata’s snow is very wet so if you do it at there, it is hard to manage if you got small mogul

when you are snowing, easy to be kicked, so we need a good technique to manage the board.

If snow is not wet so much, we easily can manage it. It is a big deference between Niigata and

others.

Echigo Yuzawa station has Ponshu kan they have over 150 sake breweries sake you can taste

easily. Just 500yen, you can try 5 small cup called Ochoko of sakes.

Very interesting display makes us reminds us reality of the drunken gentleman at there.

Anyway, If you have interest, please try to go there ASAP!! Snowing season will be closed soon!

See you then!!
