Try E-bike at Hakuba village.

Hi, I'm Haruyo.

Last weekend was a four-days weekend, I worked on Saturday though.
In the middle of it, I went to Hakuba village in Nagano prefecture to try E-bike.
E-bike is like a mountain bike with electric power. You'll be surprised how much it is. The price is.. around 400 thousand yen! (around $3800.)
Google map said we could reach the village in four hours, and no wonder we would arrive as it did.
In the end, we arrived in six hours in total. We left Tokyo at 7:30 a.m. then arrived at 1:00 p.m. There was so much more traffic than I was expecting. But the traffic on the way was better. It's on the way back!! The traffic on the way back was pretty terrible. I thought the most scary thing is human.
There was still traffic even at 10:00 p.m. Can you believe this? I was exhausted. I literally thought I want to change my holidays for another days. I mean, now my holiday is Saturday and Sunday but I want to get other days to become holidays for me. I want to avoid Saturday and Sunday. I think it makes me free.

As I was in Hakuba village, I was impressed with the huge, beautiful mountains. Rice fields in front of them looked small. Sometimes I was confused about how far they were away. But I loved the landscape. Though It was the second time to visit the village, it feels good whenever you visit. There are much nature.

In the trial of E-bike, I drove through a small path in a mountain, beside rice field and river. Sometimes I went into mud, through between logs, up high slopes. I drove to anywhere maybe I won't walk, and there I was able to see great views. How many times did I think I want to take pictures of them? I'll definitely come here again to do it.
Although we arrived around 1:00 p.m., an hour passed in the section, but the instructor did for us for two hours as it was supposed to be. I really appreciated. I found my husband was enjoying e-bike too because I saw smile in his mouth.

Also I was able to buy shine mascot that is a brand of grapes at cheaper price. In Tokyo you need to pay around 2000 yen at a bunch of it but I got it there at 800 yen!! There is nothing quite like buying fruits in production area. I should have bought it more. 

Bye.

昨日は白馬村でE-bikeの体験してきました!E-bikeは、マウンテンバイクに電動機能が付いたイメージ。
お値段、なんと40万前後するらしい。
白馬村まで4時間で到着するってグーグルマップが行ってたから、まぁその通りに着くかなと思ったら、
なんと+2時間で到着しました。
8時に出て、13時に付きました。は
途中渋滞が多くて、いやーびっくり。まだ、行きの渋滞は良かったんだけどね。
帰りの渋滞がひどすぎて、人間こわって思った。
みんな、コロナ自粛の反動すごくない!?22時まで高速渋滞ってやばくない?
世の人たちと休日ずらしたいと、まじで思った。ってか絶対そうする。そっちの方がストレスフリーだわ何事も!

白馬村着いて、見渡す限りの山を見て、山が近くて大きいから田んぼが小さく見えて距離感がつかめない。
この景色好きだわーーーって、思った。白馬村は来るの2回目だけど、自然豊かで良い村。
E-bikeの体験では、田んぼの脇道を走ったり、山の中丸太が重なっている間を通ったり、泥道突っ込んだり、坂登ったり、川が流れる横を走ったりと
普段歩かないところをスイスイ走れて、また違った風景が見れて最高だった。
わーここで写真撮りたいって何回思ったことか。
次は本当に写真撮るためだけに来るわ!!!!

12-14時の回の予約で13時ごろ着いたのに、ご厚意で15時半までやってくれて本当にありがたかった。
旦那も、にやにやしてたから楽しんでるんだな~と思った^^

安くシャインマスカットも購入できて超満足。
やっぱりフルーツは産地で買うのに尽きる。東京で一房2000円のシャインマスカットを800円で買えたよ。
見た目は確かに一粒一粒きれいではないけど、味は問題なし。
もっと買えば良かったぁぁ

また行きたい!!
