I wanted to go backcountry skiing this weekend but the weather was not so good. 

Arriving at Matsuoji temple in 1 hour 40 minutes. I assumed Wisteria would bloom in this week,

but the blooms were not so good.

On the way the earthquake alert rang on my phone. I stopped but nothing happened.

I drove further to Matsumoto Castle. Arrived in 2 hours 41 minutes, 64km.
I realized the alert was for the earthquake at Ogawamura village, near Hakuba. I worried about my condo but cannot know until I return.

Matsumoto Castle and Mt. Jonen.

The contrast of the snow and the rocks looks beautiful.
Sanzokuyaki for lunch.

I wanted to come here for this Sanzokuyaki, fried chicken with special sauce.
It became against wind on the way back.

Hard riding for over 40km.

I came back home and there was no damage after the earthquake. Nothing fell down.
