Hi there! This is Ayu from Sakura Hostel Asakusa.
Have you already read Part 1, 2 and 3 of my trip to Niigata?
I was talking about the city tour in Niigata in Part 3.
After the photo session in Manga street, we drove out of the capital city.
We ran along the sea enjoying the view and breeze♪
After dropping by a winery and bakery, it's LUNCH TIME!!
You'll be surprised to see what we had....
It's KAISEN-DON - many different kinds of fish on a rice bowl.
You can find tuna, mackerel, shrimp, firefly squid,?crab, fish eggs, etc...
All of us are so full after eating!
The shop is located on a fish market street in Teradomari area in Nagaoka-city.
The shops along this street sell a lot of fresh fish and you can also taste it on the spot!
After that, we visited Yahiko Shrine on the foot of Mt. Yahiko.
In this shrine, there's a famous stone called ''Omo-Karu-no-Ishi''.
This stone has an old legend for the people trying to lift this stone up.
If you easily uplift it and think it not too heavy, your wish will come true.
If you cannot uplift or think it heavy, it will not come true.
OK, LET'S TRY!
YES, I DID IT!!
Mmm.... It's not too heavy. I'm not lying!
I really loved the sacred atmosphere of the shrine.
In Mt. Yahiko, there's a ropeway in Mt. Yahiko.
If I visit there again, I'll try to take it or maybe climb the mountain!
Well, this is all for today!
My next issue will be the epilogue of my Niigata trip T_T
See you around!
