(Before and) After the event in Niigata

· life

Another road trip - this time through 3 prefectures: Tochigi, Gunma and Niigata.

It was Friday and the weather was perfect. All the way we wished ... "please stay this way until Sunday !!!"

It didn't work out that way ... but we still had a great journey.

再びロード・トリップ。今回は栃木、群馬、新潟の3県を駆け抜けました。

金曜日に出発。最高のお天気の中、必死の願い…”どうかこのままいい天気が続きますように!!!”

残念ながら願いは届かず… でも最高の旅でした。

Scenes from the road ...

道中の景色。

The famous winding mountain road - IROHA ZAKA in Nikko.

Non stop announcements from our car navigation:

... "There is a tight curve !" ... "There is a tight curve !" ... "There are continuous curves !" ...

Ahhhhhh ..... Drive safely everybody !!!

We also passed through the Kan-Etsu tunnel from Gunma to Niigata prefecture.

Total length: 10,926m.

Not for the claustrophobic !

山道では有名な日光のいろは坂。

カーナビのアナウンスが止みません。

”間もなく急カーブがあります!”…“間もなく急カーブがあります!”…”カーブが続きます!”

あああああ… みなさん安全運転ですよ!

群馬から新潟へ続く関越トンネルも通りました。

全長 10,926m

閉所恐怖症の方、行かない方がいいですね。

First time to see "grass skiing".

It looks like a gentle slope ... but probably still quite terrifying.

初めて見た”グラススキー”

緩やかそうなスロープ…でも結構怖いかも…

We love these small garages in Niigata. A very popular design in these heavy snow regions.

Cute little kamaboko shape...

新潟で発見した小さなガレージ。雪国ではとてもポピュラーなデザインのようです。

小さな(大きな?)蒲鉾がたっくさん…

"Nihonkai" - The Sea of Japan.

As soon as we arrived in Joetsu we went straight to the ocean.

It was late late afternoon and becoming quite dark... but there were still three surfers out catching the waves.

Always makes us happy to see the sea.

”日本海”

上越に着くなり海外沿いへまっしぐら。

夕方遅くでかなり暗くなってましたが…サーファーが3人、波乗りしてました!

海はいつ見てもいいですね、ほんとに。

Mountains, mountains and mountains...

Totoro must be around here somewhere...

山、山、山…

トトロが絶対どこかに隠れてるはず…
