My favourite film from the Ghibli studios is Spirited Away. A number of ryokan inspired this anime fantasy, particularly Kanaguya, near the famous Jigokudani monkeys in the town of Yamanouchi.
While I was driving around in Nagano, I noticed a huge parabolic antenna lost in the middle of the mountains.
Mostly know for his ski resorts, Hakuba's village is also a very nice place to be in the end of autumn. That's where took place 1998's Winter Olympic Games.
The spot is marvellous: the birds, the sound of the water and the squealing mills... and from time to time, a damn mosquito.
We're getting at Jigokudani this time to visit the famous monkeys bathing in the onsen...
What about traveling with us to Nagano guys? All in drawings?
