We don’t think that you should need an excuse to come to the fascinating Snow Country Region, but just in case you needed a little bit of inspiration, Minami Uonuma city have a digital pamphlet that highlights some of the best of their area.
We are not sure if their is an English version in the works yet (hopefully!) but even if you cannot read the Japanese it is well worth a look as it is full of stunning pictures. You can easily get a sense of what is on offer – the changing of the seasons, festivals, onsen, tradition, history, fresh local produce, and the all important rice.
