agano Prefecture is geographically in the center of the Japanese archipelago. The western to the southeastern area of the prefecture is surrounded by precipitous mountains and abounds in beautiful natural scenery, hot springs and historical towns, and can also boast of delicious cuisine. Let’s go on a trip that will stimulate all five of our senses!

Kamikochi As one of the most famous mountain resorts in Japan, Kamikochi offers breathtaking views created by the steep Hotaka mountain range, whose peaks are about 3,000 meters in height. A mountain fuming white smoke is the 2,455-meter Mount Yake-dake. It is the only active volcano in the Northern Japanese Alps. There is walkable promenade from Taisho-ike Pond, which was formed by the eruption of Mount Yake-dake in 1915, to Yokoo, and places where you can enjoy beautiful scenery such as Tashiro Moor and Tashiro-ike Pond are along it. When walking on the left side of the Azusagawa River from Kappa-bashi Bridge, which

at the foot is dotted with dynamic waterfalls and lovely lakes and ponds. Buses to the summit, Tatamidaira, start from in front of Kanko Center (Tourism Center). Yukemurikan nearby the center has an open-air bath offering a view of Mount Norikura-dake. On a day-trip you can enjoy soaking in milky white hot water for a few hours. On the plateau, there are many other hot springs. Zengoro no Taki Waterfall is one-hour bus ride from Kyukamura (Vacation Village) bus stop via Ushidome-ike Pond. Ichinose-enchi features extensive grasslands and you can tour around small lakes and marshes along the trail. An about 25-minute walk from Sanbondaki bus stop will take you to Sanbondaki (Three Stream Falls). When you go up Tatamidaira (2,700 meters) by shuttle bus, you will be quickly enveloped in a high mountain atmosphere. Splendid flower fields can be seen here from July to August. There are several walking or trekking routes, and you can choose and enjoy a hike depending on your physical strength. However, if you want

spans the river, you will soon arrive at Kamikochi Visitor Center, and then at Myojinkan (ryokan) after a while. At the back of Myojinkan, there is Myojin-ike Pond. A further one-hour walk from here will take you to Tokusawa and one more hour to Yokoo, home to Yokoo Sanso (lodge). It is a base of mountain climbing of Mount Yarigatake and Mount Hotaka-dake, which are two of the highest and steepest mountains in Japan that most serious climbers aspire to climb, and from here proper mountaineering equipment and experience is necessary. After a short summer, leaves of broad-leaf trees change to orange and red, and larches change to gold. The suspension-bridge-style Kappa-bashi was constructed 100 years ago, and a trekking tour commemorating the 100th anniversary will be held on October 3 (Sun), 2010.

Norikura Kogen Plateau Norikura Kogen, stretching east of Mount Norikura-dake, is a plateau some 1,200-1,900 meters in elevation. Mount Norikura-dake has a gentle slope to the top and the huge plateau Mt. Hotaka-dake 3190 Mt. Yake-dake 2455

to hike, appropriate equipment such as trekking shoes, a long-sleeve shirt, a hat, and rain apparel is necessary since the altitude is about 3,000 meters. For those who want to enjoy casual walking, a 30-minute route around the flower field in Tatamidaira is recommended. In spring, a huge corridor created by snow removal is alluring. It can be enjoyed from May 1 to around the end of May. Leaves around the top of Mount Norikura-dake begin to turn red in September, and autumn leaves are at their best at the foot of the mountain in early October. Snowshoe hiking on the blanket of snow or seeing frozen waterfalls is enjoyable in winter. Shirahone Onsen is a hot spring resort whose water is said to be highly efficacious for health, and it is said that you won’t catch a cold for three years if you soak for three days.

Matsumoto Matsumoto, a town that prospered as a castle town, is surrounded by the northern Japanese Alps mountain ranges to the west and Utsukushigahara Plateau to the east. From any

place in the city, you can see beautiful scenery of the mountains. In the town, touring historical buildings and eating tasty foods at well-established shops is enjoyable. Matsumoto Castle, a national treasure, has a wooden castle tower of five stories and six floors inside. It is the oldest castle of such type in Japan. You can see inside the castle tower and enjoy the panoramic view of the city from the top of the tower. Former Kaichi School is a quasi-Western style building that carpenters built in the past by eclectically imitating other “Western” buildings. Elaborate carvings decorate the facade. It is Japan’s oldest extent quasi-Western style building mixing building styles of West and East. Details such as exotic stained glass, a dragon motif carving, and karahafu, or traditional entrance roof style, are interesting to see. There are many other buildings of historical interest in Matsumoto. Nakamachi-dori Street is lined with store-

Suwa is a hot spring resort with a 400-year history. Flourishing originally as a castle town, it has many historical sites and remains. Let’s start at Shimo-Suwa Station! The northern side of Lake Suwa is a place of scenic beauty and retains some of the atmosphere of an old post-station town. Suwa Taisha shrine complex consists of four shrines, and Kamisha (“Upper Shrine,” consisting of Harumiya and Akimiya) and Shimosha (“Lower Shrine,” consisting of Honmiya and Maemiya) are located on opposite sides of Lake Suwa. First, go to calm and quiet Harumiya of Shimosha, and then to Akimiya of Shimosha where the number of visitors is the largest among the four shrines of Suwa Taisha. The huge shimenawa, or stylized sacred straw rope, is very impressive. Log pillars (onbashira) of the four corners of the shrine building are hewed from gigantic trees cut during the Onbashira Festival. From Kami-Suwa Station on the east side of Lake Suwa, go to Lake Suwa. Suwa-ko Kanketsusen Center (Lake Suwa Geyser Center) is near the lake. The geyser that shoots water up to a height of 5 meters every one hour is a must see. You can go round the lake in

about 30 minutes by car. There are some unique museums including Kitazawa Museum of Art. And, why not try sake tasting at the shop of Miyasaka Jozo Brewery, which is famous for the “Masumi” brand of sake? Lake Suwa is also famous for fireworks in summer. An amphibious bus tour around Lake Suwa started in May 2009. A bus which runs on land enters the water without modification, which is quite an experience for the passengers! The scheduled operation is from April to January. (Nihon Suiriku Kanko, 0266-75-2650) Onbashira Festival is a major festival held once every seven years. Teams of local men drag and slide huge logs down to the village, The logs are cut from gigantic trees on the mountainside and are regarded as “stand-ins” for the gods of the Taisha shrines, and they are set on end at the four corners of the shrines. The exciting spectacle of the large (and dangerous) logs and the men, sometimes riding on the logs, sliding down steep slopes in the dynamic Kiotoshi ceremony attracts many tourists. The festival took place in spring 2010, and next will be held in 2017. Komiya Onbashira Festivals takes place at many places in Suwa from late summer to autumn in the same year of the Onbashira Festival, and some of them welcome tourists’

諏訪 諏訪已經有著400年的歷史的擁有豐富泉水湧出的溫泉 地。以城邑都市而繁榮起來的,仍保留著一些史蹟及遺跡。 以下諏訪站為起點的風光明媚的諏訪湖的北岸周邊 仍保留著濃郁的宿場町氣氛。到這裡要先到諏訪大社 一遊。諏訪大社有四宮,上社跟下社是隔著諏訪湖所 建蓋的。下社裏有春宮及秋宮,而在上社則有本宮及前 宮。看完氣氛沉穩的諏訪大社下社春宮之後,再前往秋 宮。這裡是諏訪大社中參拜者特別多的地方,巨大的注 連繩魄力十足。社殿四角落的御柱用的是在御柱祭中被 砍下的巨木。 諏訪湖的東岸,從上諏訪站前往諏訪湖。在湖畔有 個諏訪湖間歇泉中心。遊客一定不能錯過這裏每小時1 次,噴出的間歇泉水高達5公尺高度的奇景。諏訪湖如 果是搭車的話,花30分就可以繞一圈。這裡有北澤美術 館及具特色的美術館也很多,還可以在以「真澄」這個 品牌知名的宮坂釀造的商店享受一下品酒的樂趣。夏天

的煙火有很出名。 諏訪湖的水陸兩用觀光巴士是從2009年5月開始營 運的。在陸地上行走的巴士直接就開進湖中,充滿了刺 激驚奇的樂趣。營運期間預定是從4月到隔年1月為止。 (洽詢:日本水陸觀光 0266-75-2650) 御柱祭是每7年舉辦一次的大祭。把從山裏砍下來的 巨木視為神明,男信徒們會把這些巨木搬運回鄉里豎 立在個社殿的四角落。將巨木從陡峭的斜坡滑落而下 的滾木下山相當魄力十足。在2010年春天舉行過後,下 一個大祭將在2017年舉行。 配合諏訪大社的御柱祭舉辦的那年,從夏天尾聲到 秋天之間,還會在諏訪地方各地舉行小宮御柱祭。一般 民眾也能隨意參加。 天鵝巴士-備有一日乘車券。諏訪巴士0266-727141;JR巴士關東0266-27-8673 Karin-chan巴士也備有1日乘車券。諏訪巴士026672-7141

Tateshina Tateshina Plateau spreads along the western foot of the Yatsuga-take mountain range and has been known as a resort area with highend villas. Beautiful Lake Tateshina, Lake Megami, Lake Shirakaba, and other lakes and the surrounding mountains make picturesque landscapes. You can enjoy appreciating art and strolling in nature at Open-Air Museum & Artland and Musee Marie Laurencin, as well as at Barakura English Garden. Pilatus Tateshina Rope Way will easily take you to the 2,237 meter top. You can see panoramic views of dynamic Northern Yatsugatake from a trail which you can go around in about 30 minutes. Tateshina Onsen and OkuTateshina Onsen both enjoy reputation as excellent spas. For touring the very extensive Tateshina Plateau, Tateshina Kogen Round Bus is convenient. It stops at major sightseeing places including Lake Tateshina, Pilatus Tateshina Rope Way, Lake Shirakaba and Kurumayama Kogen

Plateau. (Suwa Bus, 0266-72-7141) In early November, a film festival commemorating director Ozu Yasujiro is annually held at venues around Tateshina Plateau, a place he loved.

Kirigamine Kirigamine Plateau is well known for fog. The difference of elevation between Lake Suwa and Kirigamine is 1,000 meters, Soba and the temperature difference is six degrees. When a southern wind near Lake Suwa suddenly blows up toward Kirigamine, it cools very quickly, producing fog. Scenes created by dense fog and light fog are quite fantastic, but on clear days a sweeping view of the Japan Alps which can be seen from 1,600-1,800m hills is also breathtaking. The plateau has a gentle slope and is covered by flowers in summer. Trekking while seeing pretty ponds and as many as 300 kinds of alpine plants from wellorganized boardwalks and trails is enjoyable. You can go up to the top of Mount Kurumayama by lift Sky Liner. Grasses on the moors turn to autumn colors at the end of September and a bit later leaves of trees begin to turn red.

Food A place where water is delicious produces delicious soba buckwheat noodles and Shinshu (the traditional name for the Nagano region) is no exception. Why not compare a number of soba restaurants including famous ones and “undiscovered” ones? The fine water also contributes to creating tasty sake and wine. Many local breweries compete on taste. Tasty miso and soy sauce are also produced thanks to the good water. Oyaki is a bun stuffed with vegetables and wrapped in a flour-based dough wrapper. Sanzoku-yaki is a local dish in which chicken marinated in special sauce with garlic is coated with starch and deep-fried. Clear water and fruitful land nurture fresh agricultural produce. Thanks to the temperature difference between day and night, which is peculiar to a basin, watermelons, apples, grapes, blueberries and other sweet fruits and good vegetables are produced. Some vegetables are traditional types and have been produced since time out of memory. Pickles are produced as a preserved food to make up for shortages in the long winter. Suwa, Tateshina Plateau and the foot of Yatsuga-take are famous for highland vegetables. Pond smelts are caught at Lake Suwa from September to early April.

“Bunraku” is also Ningyo-Joruri Among traditional performing arts of Japan, Bunraku, a type of puppet drama, is the most renowned all over the world together with Kabuki. Puppeteers manipulate dolls to the cadences of joruri (chanted narration) spoken by tayu (a chanter), accompanied by the sounds of shamisen (a three-stringed instrument). In the past, the performance used to be called “Ningyo-Joruri,” (ningyo generally means “doll”) but nowadays it is officially called “Bunraku,” which derives from the name of the theater that specialized in showing the puppet shows.

World-Renowned Sophisticated Performing Art One of the major reasons why Bunraku is a world-class performing art is in its style. It is a composite art consisting of joruri, one form of Japan’s shamisen music, and a unique operation by which three puppeteers maneuver one doll together. In terms of stories, unlike most other puppet plays in the world in which a short play of a simple story of a myth or fairy tale is performed, Bunraku dramas express a serious story depicting human emotions in a lengthy narrative performance, and some of them continue for a full day. In addition, although puppeteers make efforts to hide themselves in most other puppet shows, puppeteers of Bunraku are vis-

ible to the audience. Bunraku is truly a one-ofa-kind performing art with characteristics that are markedly different from those of other puppet shows in other cultures around the world.

Brief History of Bunraku The origin of Bunraku dates back to the early 17th century. Later in the century, in 1684 Takemoto Gidayu founded Takemoto-za theater in Dotonbori, Osaka, and started producing a string of hits of Ningyo-Joruri, thanks to the scenarios of Chikamatsu Monzaemon, the troupe playwright. In the mid-18th century, Ningyo-Joruri was at its heyday, overtaking the popularity of Kabuki. In the 19th century, Uemura Bunrakuken opened Bunrakuza theater in Osaka. It became the center of this performing art, and that’s why the name “Bunraku” became the name commonly used for Ningyo-Joruri. Bunraku was inscribed in November 2008 on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.

Elaborate Devices and Deep Emotional Appeal One Doll Operated by Three Puppeteers Bunraku performances are composed of three elements called “Sangyo”: tayu, shamisen and

puppeteers. One tayu performs the voices all characters, and also performs the voice of the narrator for each scene. He is the only one performer who makes vocal sounds on the stage. The “spouse,” so to speak, of the tayu is the shamisen, which expresses emotions of characters and scenes by musical sound. Further, Bunraku requires three puppeteers to manipulate each “doll” or puppet, which is different from all other puppet performance around the world. The three puppeteers are: omo-zukai, or head puppeteer, who manipulates the kashira (the doll’s head and face) with his left hand to animate the doll, and who with his own right hand also operates the doll’s right hand; hidari-zukai, or left-hand puppeteer, who operates the doll’s left hand and also handles props; and ashi-zukai, or foot puppeteer, who uses both hands to suggest the movements of the doll’s legs and feet. A Bunraku doll is quite large at about 120150 cm in height, and a bit heavy with 3-10 kg in weight. To reach the final goal of becoming a head puppeteer, it takes, first, a long period of training of about 15 years from the start as a foot puppeteer, and then another 15 years as left-hand puppeteer. On the stage, the three puppeteers work together in perfect harmony, and it makes the doll seem truly alive. A dolls’ movements are surprisingly delicate and often more beautiful than

Japanese traditional performing art, Bunraku, with a more than 400 year history. This is an introduction to Bunraku for beginners who first see it in Japan. Let's go and see Bunraku in Tokyo in September or in Osaka in November in 2010! 「文樂」就是所謂的人形淨瑠璃劇 為代表日本的傳統藝能之一,與歌舞伎同樣有名的有傳 統的木偶劇「文樂」。文樂是在三味線的演奏之下,配 合著大夫講述的淨瑠璃說唱演出的木偶劇。原本文樂 指的是演出人形淨瑠璃劇的劇場名稱。現在則是以「文 樂」當作正式名稱使用,以前叫做「操縱人形淨瑠璃」 或是「人形淨瑠璃」。 榮耀世界的高水準舞台藝術「文樂」 文樂之所以會譽為榮耀世界的舞台藝術,首先要談到 其風格。以日本的三味線音樂之一的淨瑠璃,搭配上由 三個人共同操縱一具木偶的獨特的木偶操縱法的綜合 藝術。此外其故事內容,也與世界上常見的木偶劇幾乎 都是短篇的單純神話或童話有所不同,文樂是以描寫 人的內心的嚴肅的內容所發展出的長篇戲劇,有些作品 需花費一整天上演。並且,幾乎所有的木偶劇,都會想 辦法隱藏操縱木偶的人,而文樂則是讓操縱木偶的人

those of real human beings if they are manipulated by master puppeteers. Dolls are sometimes lovely and sometimes mysterious. They are also good at getting the audience to laugh and moving acrobatically. They win all the more empathy from the audience because they are dolls.

Exquisite Tension of “Sangyo” During the play, tayu and shamisen players don’t see the stage. The back and forth between these two elements of the “sangyo” as they heighten their emotions and those of the characters in the play, creates a certain tension, and this harmonious tension contributes much to a successful performance. Some dramas feature historic incidents and others feature lives of ordinary people. But in both types, essential emotions of human beings, which are the same now as in ancient times, are portrayed. Indeed, the world portrayed by dolls seems more profoundly human than the human world we are normally accustomed to. This unique Japanese performing art is a must-see in Japan!

Tokyo Hakodate Christmas Fantasy

his winter, Hakodate will be a hot spot, so to speak The Tohoku Shinkansen Line is to be extended to Shin-Aomori and the entire line will open on December 4, 2010. Changing to the Tsugaru-Kaikyo Line at Shin-Aomori Station, you will be able to arrive at Hakodate, a hub of southern Hokkaido, much faster than now. Hakodate spreads out in a fan-like shape at the foot of Mount Hakodate-yama, and juts out into the Tsugaru Straits. It has a lot of slopes. It is not a large city but full of history and culture, onsen hot springs, nature, spectacular night views and culinary delights. Let's go to Hakodate this winter!

Hakodate Christmas Fantasy

Hakodate Christmas Fantasy

Hakodate, which celebrated the 150th anniversary of the port opening to foreign countries last year, also holds many attractive events this year as well. Among them, Hakodate Christmas Fantasy 2010 in particular is garnering much attention. The event started in 1998, but this year is special. A huge and imposing fir tree that is presented every year by Halifax in Canada, the twin city of Hakodate, is to be decorated with about 50,000 light bulbs and displayed in the bay area of Hakodate. This event takes place from December 1 (Wed) to 25 (Sat), and during the period of the event, the tree-lighting ceremony is held at 5:50 p.m. and fireworks are launched everyday. The Christmas illumination and fireworks will create a fantastic atmosphere. Quite fantastic as it may be – it is still winter. Especially in the evening, it is chilly. Famous restaurants in Hakodate will each open a soup bar at the event venue. A delicious original soup is sure to help keep you warm. And volunteer staff members who wear Santa Claus costumes will entertain you and a huge wall painting will be displayed. Hakodate Christmas Fantasy Bus will run, and JR Hakodate will operate SL Hakodate Christmas Fantasy on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and the 23 (holiday) from December 4 to 25. (both are charged)

Sightseeing Spots Motomachi For sightseeing in the city, using a tram is very convenient. When getting off at Suehiro-cho Station and going up Motoi-zaka Slope, passing the Old British Consulate of Hakodate on the left side, you soon reach Motomachi Park. This is a park built on the place where the Hakodate Magistrate's Office and Hokkaido Development Commissioner’s Office from the Meiji to early Showa period (the late 19th to early 20th century) were located. The park is home to the Old Branch Office of the Hokkaido Government. The Old Public Hall of Hakodate Ward, located next to Motomachi Park, is a wooden Westernstyle building built in 1910. You can get a sweeping view of the sea from Hachiman-zaka Slope and many films, dramas and TV commercials have been shot there. The top of the slope is the best place for a bird's-eye view of Hakodate Port. Motomachi is also home to the Russian Orthodox Church, Motomachi Roman Catholic Church, Hakodate Episcopal Church, and several other churches. This area is full of exotic and historic atmosphere. Several cafes command a fine view, and restaurants and souvenir shops based in buildings built in the early 20th century also add flavor to the area.

One of the Best Night Views in Japan The night view of the port from the bay area, which is the venue of Hakodate Christmas Fantasy, is recommended, but the night view from Mount Hakodate-yama (334m) is considered a highlight of Hakodate sightseeing. A 10-minute walk from tram Juji-gai Station takes you to Sanroku (foot of the mountain) Station of Mount Hakodate Ropeway. Taking just three minutes to reach the summit by cable car (an amazing 125 people can fit in each car), the views of the sparkling, fanshaped city are beautiful. This nighttime view is traditionally said to be one of the Three Famous Nighttime Views in the world, along with those of Naples in Italy and Hong Kong. For those wanting to take in the night view, take the cable car up between 30 minutes and two hours after sunset. After 10 p.m., the illuminated displays in the town below are turned off and the town darkens.

Goryokaku Park/Yunokawa Onsen


Goryokaku (Five Corner) Fortress, the first Western-style fortress in Japan, constructed in the mid 19th century, is in Goryokaku Park and open to the public as a historic site. The Hakodate Magistrate's Office of the Tokugawa Shogunate was reconstructed in July 2010 using the original construction techniques, and has been attracting many visitors. The 107-meter Goryokaku Tower, which was built in 2006, is a landmark. A star-shaped structure can be seen from the tower and this is the remaining foundation of Goryokaku Fortress. In spring, blossoms of 1,600 cherry trees and Japanese wisteria bloom in the park, and in winter the park is illuminated at night. Yunokawa Onsen, a spa opened in 1653, is one of the largest hot springs in Hokkaido. Its water is rich in chloride salt, and is good for rheumatism and neuralgia. Being close to the center of Hakodate and Hakodate Airport, it is convenient to take a day trip and soak in a bath. Also, you can stay at a hotel or ryokan, enjoying the onsen atmosphere in a more leisurely manner. At some hotels and ryokans, you can leisurely soak in a big bath, gazing at the night fishing fires on fishing boats out on the ocean. It is sure to be a memorable experience of Hakodate.

Speaking of food of Hakodate, you cannot miss the seafood. There are numerous restaurants serving fresh squid, which is a specialty of Hakodate, crabs, sea urchins, and salmon caviar. Asa-ichi, the morning market, is located within a one-minute walk from Hakodate Station. About 300 vendor stalls sell fresh seafood brought ashore that very morning, as well as fresh vegetables and fruits. The market starts to get busy in early morning and is also home to many seafood restaurants. Sushi and dishes using fresh ingredients such as squid and other seafood are popular, and so are Hakodate salt ramen noodles, a typical ramen of Hokkaido. "Lucky Pierrot" hamburger shops are favored by local people for fresh-from-the-grill, hot and hearty burgers and you can choose from a variety of types.

Other Events Hakodate Illumination Fantasy takes place from December 1 to February 28. The three slopes in the Motomachi district are lit up by illuminations which are attached to trees along the streets. The illuminated town that is covered Night view from Mount Hakodate

ount Takao is blessed with abundant nature. You can casually enjoy hiking and recently it has been becoming popular as a “spiritual spot.” Hachioji has several spas where you can relax for a couple of hours, and attractive restaurants and bars. Enjoy a one-day trip from Tokyo!

Mount Takao Mount Takao, 599 meters high, is located in western Tokyo, 50 km away from the center of Tokyo. A mere 50-minute train ride from Shinjuku Station will take you to a splendid natural environment, where you will forget you are still within metropolitan Tokyo! This mountain is popular as a place where you can enjoy hiking in a casual manner, and also has long been familiar to ordinary people for mountain worship. The forests around the mountain retain varieties of woods such as deciduous trees like beech and evergreen trees like oak. Mount Takao was awarded three stars of the Michelin Voyage Pratique Japon in 2007 along with Mount Fuji. You will find many shops and restaurants from Keio Takaosanguchi Station to Cable Car Kiyotaki Station. There are also cafes and restaurants in the middle and even on top of the mountain, so you won’t have any difficulty to

drink or eat something on the mountain. If you want to eat a box lunch in the open air, buying some food at these shops is a good idea. Head for Cable Car Kiyotaki Station. The cable car and the lift is the easiest way to go to the summit area if you are not the hiking type. If you are a good walker, hiking the mountain is very enjoyable. There are three trails from the side of Kiyotaki Station, and each trail will take you to the top in about 90 minutes. For very beginners, 1-goro (Trail 1) is recommended. You can enjoy walking along a mountain stream in 6-goro (Trail 6), and you can enjoy nice views via the Inariyama Trail. Although Mount Takao is low, it is a mountain, so please be careful. Prepare rain gear and something to drink, wear a hat and shoes that comfortably fit you. Even if only using the cable car, wearing high-heeled shoes is not recommended. From the observation deck near Takaosan Cable Car Station, you can see a panoramic view of the Kanto Plain, centering on high-rise structures in downtown areas such as Tokyo Tower and Yokohama Landmark Tower. Takao Beer Mount is open from July to the end of September every year. It is a very popular beer garden with a breathtaking view of Tokyo and Yokohama. This view is popularly called the “10 million dollar night view.” Go through the Trail 1, and find Monkey Park and the Wild Plant Garden. Watching the doings of about 50 free-range monkeys is interesting. Passing a gigantic cedar called “Tako sugi” (octopus cedar), you will reach a fork in the trail. One way is Otoko-zaka (male slope) with 108 stone steps and the other way is Onna-zaka (female slope) with a more gentle slope. The two ways join together later. The cedar-lined trail continues and these cedars are said to be 450 years old. They are 6 meters in diameter and the tallest ones are about 37 meters in height. Yakuo-in Temple is the head temple of the Chizan School of the Shingon Sect of Buddhism. It is home to a tradition of ascetic training for

yamabushi (mountain priests) and also numerous folk stories of long-nosed tengu goblins. In the precincts, a large tengu statue and a small tengu statue faces each other. Hiwatari Matsuri, or Fire-Walking Ritual, annually takes place at a square in front of the Kito-den Hall at the foot of Mount Takao on the second Sunday of March. Small pieces of wood are burned to pray for a perfect state of health in the year ahead. When the fires die down, yamabushi bravely walk barefoot over the hot coals, praying for perfect health and the well-being of the family, which is the climax of the ritual. Ordinary people can participate in the fire-walking if they so desire. If you climb a little more from Yakuo-in, you will reach the top of the mountain. There is a visitor center and restaurants, and an observation deck is at the back. On clear days, Mount Fuji can be seen right in the front of your line of sight. Mount Takao has nature trails where you can observe and learn about nature in all seasons. Boards explaining animals, plants, insects and wild birds that are peculiar to Mount Takao are set up along the trails. After enjoying the rich national environment, go back down the mountain through your favorite route. Blessed with abundant spring water, Mount Takao is also known for its delicious soba, or buckwheat noodle, shops since olden days. Other dishes such as tororo soba, or buckwheat noodle with grated yam, river fish dishes, and mugitoro, a boiled mixture of rice and barley topped with grated yam, are also available.

estled in the Northern Alps, which are the highest and steepest mountain ranges of Japan, there are five hot springs resorts collectively called Okuhida Onsengou. Hirayu Onsen, located at an altitude of 1,283 meters, is the oldest and most venerable spa of Okuhida. It has long prospered as a hub of neighboring sightseeing spots such as Takayama and Shinhotaka, Gifu Prefecture, and Kamikochi, Nagano Prefecture. It is home to a variety of lodging facilities from rustic inns to luxurious hotels. Hirayu Otaki Falls, one of three major waterfalls in the Hida region, is nearby. Fukuchi Onsen is another rustic-feeling spa. Japan’s oldest fossil and other many fossils were discovered around the spa. Shinhirayu Onsen is the center of the Okuhida area. It spreads along the western foot of Mount Yake-dake, one of the mountains of the Northern Alps, and is the largest hot spring resort of the area. With a lot of water sources, you can enjoy abundant water of a variety of qualities. Okuhida Bear Park, which is home to some 100 bears, is an enjoyable place to visit.

Tokyo Osaka Fukuoka


Tochio Onsen has a homely atmosphere. You can enjoy local cuisine of Okuhida in a relaxed and friendly manner. Shinhotaka Onsen is in the middle of a large wilderness area, just at the foot of the Northern Alps. In the past, only alpinists stayed here as a mountain climbing base. However, after the opening of Shinhotaka Ropeway in 1970, ordinary people became able to see 3,000-meter mountains at close range without climbing with their own feet. And now it is a popular spa attracting many tourists. With about 140 open-air baths - said to be No.1 in Japan - the nostalgic feel of the mountainside villages, and beautiful scenery that changes dramatically with the seasons, it is sure that you will enjoy a unique and refreshing experience at the Okuhida Onsengou. Local specialties such as delicious Hida beef, wild vegetables and river fi sh are also recommended.

A walk of two parks, enjoying the sea and harbor 漫步2座公園,欣賞海洋與港口風光

Yokohama Short Trip 橫濱小旅行


he sea and harbor are representative scenic attractions of Yokohama. Let’s walk around a park where you can enjoy the sea breezes and a park where you can enjoy fine views overlooking the harbor. When you go to the seaside from Nihon Odori Station on the Minato Mirai Line through Kaiko Hiroba (Open Port Square), you will find Osanbashi Yokohama International Passenger Terminal. In 1975, the famous British cruise ship the Queen Elizabeth II came here. The Rooftop Plaza offers panoramic views and the ocean breeze makes you feel cool and refreshed. You can see Yokohama Port spread out in front of you, the Red Brick Warehouse and a cluster of high-rise buildings in the Minato Mirai 21 area to your left, and Bay Bridge and boats that pass under the bridge on your right hand side. If you look further right, Yamashita Park, the Hikawa-maru, which is a retired luxury liner/ museum moored at the park, and Yokohama Marine Tower will come into sight. Yamashita Park stretches about 1 km from the entrance of Osanbashi to Yamashita Pier, facing the seaside. You can have a relaxed time simply lying down on the grass, looking around at seasonal flowers in bloom, or strolling about seeing various sculptures and monuments in the open air. Walking in the refreshing sea breeze from spring to summer is, of course, good, but walking in autumn is also very enjoyable. Particularly

in late autumn, bright yellow-tinged leaves create a fascinating landscape. From the pedestrian bridge connecting Yamashita Park and Yokohama Doll Museum, you can enjoy a splendid view of ginkgo trees along YamashitaKoen-dori Street. Yokohama Doll Museum houses about 13,000 dolls from 140 countries around the world, and special exhibits are also held from time to time. Why not drop in? Minato no Mieru Oka Koen (Harbor View Park) is on the hill commanding a view of Yokohama Port. It has a different appeal from that of Yamashita Park, which is along the seafront. Military personnel of the U.K. and France were stationed here when Japan opened Yokohama Port to foreigners in the mid-19th century. Walk along the trail through a wooded area called France Yama (“French mountain”) to the observatory, the top of which commands a sweeping view of the port. The night view is outstanding. Osaragi Jiro Kinenkan (Memorial Hall), Kanagawa Museum of Modern Literature and Igirisu-Kan (English House) are on the south side. About 1,800 roses bloom beautifully in the Rose Garden, especially in May and October. Yokohama Foreign General Cemetery and some historic Western-style houses, which are popular sightseeing places, are not very far from here. Enjoy a leisure walk in two fine parks of Yokohama!



從港未來線日本大通車站,經過開港廣場往海邊 走,就是橫濱港大棧橋國際客船站。1975年知名的英 國伊利莎白女王二號(RMS Queen Elizabeth 2)曾經 入港。從屋頂上的廣場展望四周,海風迎面吹彿的同 時,享受爽快的心情,橫濱港就在眼前展開。左邊望 眼過去,是紅磚倉庫與港未來的高樓大廈。右邊是海 灣大橋與其底下交錯的船影。更往右邊,山下公園與 冰川丸、海之塔(Marine Tower)等盡入眼底。 從大棧橋的入口到山下碼頭約1公里,面向海岸就 是山下公園。可以在草皮廣場上悠閒渡過,或者欣賞 各季百花綻放的花園,以及邊走邊觀看各種野外雕 刻與紀念碑也是樂趣無窮。 春天到夏天,迎著海風散步也很不錯,而晚秋的黃 葉時節也是另一種魅力。從連接山下公園與橫濱娃娃 之家的步道橋望去,山下公園銀杏行道樹的景觀也是 十分美麗。 橫濱娃娃之家裡收藏世界140個國家,約有13000個 娃娃。隨時都有舉辦展覽,散步的途中一定要去看看喔! 港見丘公園位於俯視橫濱港的高台,比起近距離 感受港口風情的山下公園,具有不同的魅力。這裡在 橫濱開港時期曾經有英國與法國軍隊駐紮。通過被稱 為法國山的雜樹林中步道,前往展望台。從展望台可 一望橫濱港灣,尤其是夜景相當漂亮。其南側有大佛 次郎紀念館、神奈川縣立近代文學館、英國館等等。 玫瑰花園裡約有1800支左右的玫瑰可供欣賞。5月與 10月正是玫瑰的觀賞季節。距離熱門的觀光景點、外 國人墓地與西式建築不會太遠。 透過這兩個公園,讓我們悠閒地享受橫濱風光吧!

Basic Japanese Home Cooking

Let’s learn from a veteran Japanese housewife!


Sake to kinoko no hoiru-yaki Salmon and mushroom foil cooking Ingredients (serves 4) 4 fresh salmons 1 pack enoki mushrooms 1 pack shimeji mushrooms 4 shiitake mushrooms 1-cm piece of carrot

2 tbsp sake 1 tsp salt butter to taste soy sauce to taste 1 yuzu (Japanese citron) or sudachi (Japanese lime)

Cooking directions:

Remove the stems of the shiitake mushrooms and slice the heads thinly. The stems can also be used and should be sliced lengthwise.

att. Recipe

Remove the salmon from the fridge 20 minutes before cooking and warm to room temperature. Sprinkle with salt and sake.

Any mushroom is OK. Divide the bunch into as small stalks as possible to make delicious.

Trim the stems of the enoki mushrooms and by hand divide the bunch into roughly 5 stalks. Trim the stems of the shimeji mushrooms and by hand divide the bunch into roughly 1-2 stalks. Slice the carrot into 4 round slices and cut into the desired shape using a cutter. Prepare 4 sheets of aluminum foil 30cm by 30cm and lightly spread butter in the center so as to prevent the fish from sticking to the foil and also to add flavor.

With carrot, it seems like a mountain of orange maple leaves in autumn!

Place a piece of salmon in the center of the foil, adding mushrooms to cover the fish, and conclude by putting the carrot on top. Fold and seal the two sides of the foil to cover the ingredients, and seal the other two sides. Place the 4 foil-wrapped pieces in a pan. Pour hot water in the pan to depth of 1cm. Cover the pan and steam for about 10 minutes over a high heat. If the water boils away during cooking, add hot water as needed. Serve by placing the foil on a plate with quartered yuzu. Open the foil, squeeze the yuzu, and add butter and soy sauce to taste.

Tips: A steamer can be used as an alternative to a pan. Make sure you tightly seal the foil to prevent water from entering.

Instructor: Kazuko Karasawa I learned cooking from my parents, who ran a Japanese restaurant, and my grandmother, who lived to be 100 years old. As a housewife, I've been cooking for 18 years. I like cooking everyday, taking care of my family’s health.

Take care not to be burned by hot steam when opening the foil.

For more details, go to high heat

medium heat

low heat

Japanese Liquid Measures: 1 cup = 200 ml = 6.76 fl oz / 1 tablespoon = 15 ml = 0.5 fl oz / 1 teaspoon = 5 ml = 0.16 fl oz

I sometimes find it difficult to eat fish because of its smell, but this recipe is good and I’ll certainly try it again!

Student: Laetitia Ogawa I was born in France and grew up there. I married a Japanese man. Because Japanese food is good for the health and my son and husband both like it very much, I want to master Japanese recipes.

Tourist Information Transportation / 交通

Rail Japan is covered in a rail network that reaches to almost every corner of the archipelago. Most are owned and run by the Japan Railway (JR) system and the world famous “Shinkansen” bullet train is of course one of the fastest and most enjoyable forms of land transport anywhere -- the distance between Tokyo and Osaka being covered in just 2hrs 30 mins on the fastest line. Japan Rail Pass allows you to use the whole JR system (including the Shinkansen) but is only sold outside Japan. 28,300 yen gets you a full 7 day ticket (adults). For more info, check the Japan Rail Pass website:

Bus Long-distance buses in Japan are run by numerous companies including JR. Buses are generally more economic than traveling by plane or train but do take longer and can be affected by traffic jams at busy times of the day or night. Local buses run all over Japan as well as in the major cities and sometimes English instructions or stop announcements are used but this is not the case everywhere. We would recommend you ask drivers to remind you of where you must disembark prior to setting off.

Boat There are many sea routes connecting Hokkaido, the Honshu mainland, Shikoku, Kyushu and Okinawa, respectively. There are also many sea routes to remote islands. Sea fare is usually less expensive than airfare. There are also international routes to China, Taiwan, South Korea and Russia.

Tourist Information

Taxis Japanese taxis can be found at the exit to every train station in the country or alternatively hailed on the streets. The red sign visible through the windshield of the car: “空車” (kusha) means it is vacant and available for hire but when the sign reads “賃走” (chinso), it is

unavailable. The back door on the left side will open and close automatically so be careful not to stand too close! (All the other doors are operated manually) Rates vary depending on the taxi company but usually start at a fixed rate of 710 yen (in Tokyo) for the first two kilometers. The rate system is shown inside the taxi and receipts can be issued. 鐵路 日本的鐵路網相當發達,從日本國內到各處幾乎利用鐵路可到 達,主要有JR(Japan Railway Co., Ltd., 日本旅客鐵路)運行 著,在這當中藉由世界上也很有名的「新幹線」之移動,一定會 是日本旅行中最印象深刻的活動之一。東京―大阪間最快是2 個小時30分。 JAPAN RAIL PASS(日本鐵路旅遊券)是可利用包含新幹 線的日本全國的JR,只有在日本國外才有販賣,一個大人一週間 ¥28300。詳情請看JAPAN RAIL PASS的網站 巴士 包含JR,有許多公司提供長距離巴士的運行,一般來說比藉由 飛機和鐵路的旅行較具經濟性,但是所花的時間比較長,也 較容易受交通阻塞的影響。 主要的都市、城鎮可利用公車線路,最近雖然英語的表示和 廣播也逐漸增加,但是為了確實地到達目的地,建議您事先拜 託駕駛員,請駕駛員到達目的地時通知一下。 遊輪 北海道、本州、四國、九州與沖繩之間有很多航線。還有很多離 島航線。一般而言,遊輪的費用比搭飛機更便宜。也有中國、台 灣、韓國與俄羅斯之間往來的航線。 計程車 除了可搭乘等候在車站前的計程車外,在路上也可叫到計程 車。計程車能不能搭乘,可藉由車窗前部分的表示來判斷。顯 示「空車」的時候,表示無人乘坐,可搭乘。出現「賃走」時表 示已經有別的乘客搭乘了。車子左後方的車門會自動打開與關 閉,所以要注意一下不要靠的太近被車門撞到(其他的車門用手 打開與關閉)。車費根據計程車公司而有所不同,但是一般起 跳710日圓(最初的2公里),車資的體制告示在車內裡,也可拿 到收據。

Getting Around in Tokyo / 東京的交通 In big cities, such as Tokyo and Osaka, the under and over ground train system is well organized and highly efficient accessing any and all parts of the cities. To avoid wasting time lining up for tickets and working out how to use the machines in different stations, it is highly recommended to purchase pre-paid cards.

Transportation cards/useful tickets If planning to stay in Japan for a longer period why not try using IC cards? (500 yen deposit returned when returning the card) Simply touch the card on a rectangular pad beside the ticket gate and the fare used is automatically deducted from the value of the card. In Tokyo the cards are known as Suica or PASMO and are accepted on JR lines, subways and most other railways and buses. The Tokyo Furii Kippu (東京フリーきっぷ) (http:// is available for use on JR lines (inside Tokyo’s 23 wards), subways, and the Toei Bus service for one whole day -ending at midnight -- at a charge of 1,580 yen. 在東京,大阪等大都市的交通系統被充分的整備,如果使用電 車或是地下鐵的話可到達任何地方,如果不想浪費為了購買車 票而排隊的時間,建議您利用預付費卡。 划算的交通卡 如果預定在日本逗留一些時間的話,不妨試試看IC卡吧!(購入 時要付¥500的保證金,將卡歸還時,保證金會退還給您。)在 剪票機旁的讀取機上觸摸一下,運費會從卡上自動被扣取。在 東京地區Suica和PASMO兩者除了JR線、地下鐵、其他大部分 的私鐵之外,也可搭乘巴士。 如果使用Tokyo Furii Kippu(的 話,可在一天內無限制乘坐JR(東京23區內)加上地下鐵、都營 巴士,一張票¥1580。

Getting Around in Osaka / 關西的交通

Transportation cards/useful tickets In the Kansai (Osaka) area ICOCA or PiTaPa is available IC cards similar to Suica / PASMO. The Kansai Thru Pass (スルッと関西) (http:// offers a similar service to the Tokyo Furii Kippu in Kansai and enables subway, railway (bar JR lines), and bus use throughout the Kansai area. Price - 3,800 yen for 2 days or 5,000 yen for 3 days. 在關西(大阪)地區有ICOCA和PiTaPa兩種IC卡扮演著跟Suica/ PASMO同樣的角色。 KANSAI THRU PASS(能夠自由乘坐關 西地區的地下鐵、私鐵(JR線除外)及巴士。2日乘車卡¥3800、 3日乘車卡¥5000。
