    那須岳の山頂9合目まで連れて行ってくれるロープウェイ。運行時間およそ4分ほどなので、それほどロープウェイに連れていってもらった感は感じられず。そのわりにチケット代がそれなりなので、まあ、こんなものなのかなー。

    This is Japan's first amphibious land and water bus tour. Take a tour of Yunishigawa Dam and then a cruise around Yunishigawa Lake formed by the dam. The open windowless design of the bus gives a sense of freedom and gives the cruise experience so much more impact. Tours operate from April to December.

    晴れて暖かい日でしたが上着を貸し出していたのでお借りしました。 バスが走り出した途端物凄く寒くなってきて、ダムに着いたときには冷え切ってしまいました。 窓のないバスなので風が直撃でかなりきつかったです。 そこでは、一般の人が入れないという場所を見学させて頂き貴重な体験が出来ました。 ダム湖の中の遊覧も楽しかったですが 運転している方がガイドもされていて その方のお話がとてもお上手で飽きませんでした...

    Located in Nikko City, Tochigi Prefecture, this strawberry farm lets you do some strawberry-picking from mid-December to early June.

    This ranch is located in Toyoharaotsu, Nasu Town. Their cow’s milk comes from jersey cows, rare in Japan, and the milk is pasteurized after being squeezed and processed in a way that keeps the fat globules from shrinking and preserves the natural non-homogenized taste. They sell milk, ice cream, “squeezable yogurt” in a tube, and other processed goods, and the cafe offers drinks and sweets made with the milk they produce and lunch sets that use locally grown vegetables and other options.
