Hello everyone.
We hope you have been enjoying photos from Norikura Kogen and the surrounding area. 

Starting this month, a new promotion team will start sharing photos and stories about the beautiful nature, activities, and attractions from a locals perspective. 

The new team is made up of seven people, some were born here, others relocated here from other parts of Japan and one moved across an ocean to live here. We will highlight must-visit locations, talk about what’s fun to do here from each member’s unique perspective. 
We are calling this project “ASOBU YAKUSOKU” which means “promise to play” in Japanese. As we get out an enjoy playing in the Japanese Alps we will focus on community, onsen, nature, accommodations, and local shops.

From today we will start to introduce the 7 team members. They are Seth, Yuma, Azumi, Kenny, Koei, Mitsuru, and Yushi. We hope you will enjoy our stories and photos.
