Narisu / I'm from Inner Mongolia, China / I have lived in Japan for 15 years.
I came to Japan in 2002 as an exchange student. After graduation, I started working at Nagano City Hall. Along with my primary responsibility of assisting residents originally from overseas who live in Nagano City with everyday life and employment, I organize cultural exchanges with friendship cities, do translation work, and more. I love nature, traveling and mountain climbing. In addition to working, I am studying traditional Japanese activities - such as wearing kimono and tea ceremony - in order to deepen my understanding of Japanese culture. I hope to introduce the splendor of Japan as I know it, so that even more people will come to love this beautiful country.
Located in the center of the Japanese archipelago, Nagano is known for being one of Japan’s most famous heavily forested areas, with beautiful scenery in each season. Out of all the mountains in Japan that are over 3000 meters above sea level, 15 are found in Nagano, making it heaven on earth for fans of mountain climbing and skiing. Mt. Togakushi, known for the legend of the Gate of the Celestial Rock Cave, has a vast amount of up-and-down terrain. The mysterious road that leads to Togakushi Shrine, a power spot, is lined with tall cedar trees that pierce upward into the sky. Afternoon and evening temperatures vary greatly. With serene air and dazzlingly beautiful flowing water, Nagano is known for producing sweet fruit and soba noodles. In the spring, the mountain flowers are in full bloom; in the summer months, the cool temperatures make Nagano a perfect place to retreat from the heat; when fall rolls around, the fall foliage blankets the mountains; and once winter has come, you can enjoy landscapes entirely blanketed in snow. Other very interesting experiences in Nagano include soaking in a hot spring while looking at the scenery, and visiting the old samurai residences in the Matsushiro district.
