I am Naoko. I live in a snow country region in Niigata. I read snow country by Yasunari Kawabata at least 3 times.
Sorrounded by beautiful mountain sceneris and rice terraces with fresh air, I hope that you will enjoy our hot springs, traditional fabrics, traditional food and sake.
I know how to wear kimono, how to make maccha and how to ski.
