Sunflowers in Nagano
Nagano Prefecture is well-known for its winter sports, and of course the 1998 Winter Olympics. But summer offers pleasant reprieve from the sultry summer heat in the major city areas. In addition to simply getting away nature offers a wonderful bounty.
Driving in the highlands takes you past many places begging for a visit, like this lovely “rest stop” near Iida, Nagano Prefecture. The field was ablaze with tall, robust sunflowers in their prime. And after a brief stretch, one can pick up a few fresh vegetables, some worth eating on the spot!
I must say, for Japan’s rather extreme industry in the city centers, I really appreciate how pleasant the interior can be.
