Thoughts on the mountain region

chowfamily | Jan 8, 2008 06:15 AM

This is our first visit to Japan. We will be there from 26 February to 18 March.

We will arrive jet-lagged at Narita Airport and plan to drive to Karuizama. I am interested to know if there is something along this route that we should enjoy.

We will remain there for 10 days. Our preference in food tends to the less expensive for practical reasons, but we are looking to explore and are willing to pay more for something worth a detour - which this is!

We hope to eat, ski, explore, and soak in onsen as often as possible.

We then move on Nagarahano for one week, and return to Tokyo to fly back to Boston while our son remains in Aizu for several months to study.

Any food and travel thoughts everywhere along the way would be most welcome. We want to make the most of our limited time there, and have a few gap days to explore other areas.

Thank you in advance for any advice!
