However, the ramen we ordered did not meet our expectation.

ちもと餅をたべました。フワフワした食感で何とも言えない感じ、初めての食感でした。クルミ?が入っていて美味しかったです。レジのお母さんの対応が丁寧ですごく良かったです。

席に通されましたが、座席、テーブルにハエが何匹もいました。店中ハエがブンブン飛び回り、食事どころではなく帰りたくなりました。
もう少し虫対策を行ってもらいたいです。
カキ氷は期待していたものの、家で作るようなカキ氷と同じクオリティー。悲しい気持ちで店をすぐにでました。

Nagano Main Areas

around-area-map

Nagano prefecture is an exciting mix of mountains, hot spring monkeys, and preserved Edo history. At the heart of the Japanese Alps, Nagano is one of the country’s most popular destinations, whether in winter for its snow sports and the much-loved Jigokudani Monkey Park or in the warmer months for discovering the undulating hills on foot. For fantastic Edo architecture, head to the Kiso Valley for a 60-kilometer stretch of quaint wooden buildings that marked the Nakasendo route 200 years ago.
