The funky purple cottage

Im still teaching English at Nasu Kogen in Tochigi prefecture in Japan and enjoying it.

Well winter has arrived in the moutains of Tochigi at Nasu Kogen and the snow started to fall quiet heavily on New Years Eve.  Although one week later it had melted away and was a beautiful crisp winters day.

Since it was my first time to experience living in snowy conditions it was fun to explore the area.

One day was so clear there was a perfect view of the nearby Mount Nasu in all its spectacular glory.  It was an awesome site to see and have it sitting on my doorstep.

I stayed in various cottages but my favourite was the funky purple cottage - Yep bright purple.

The town of Nasu has a code were all the cottages must be wooden inside and out and they can be painted certain bright funky colours such as purple, green, blue and various other shades.

Nasu Mountains

The town of Nasu is very reminiscent of a small mountain town in the USA and you would not think that your in Japan its quiet easy to forget with the local scenery.

There are some fantastic cafes that sell some of the best cheese cake and coffee ever as well some local shops such as the Asian Bazzar with its shops selling treasures from Tibet, Vietnam and Bali.  It even has the entrance gate done up as a traditional entrance to Balinese shirnes. Very realistic too I must add.

Nasu Kogen is home to various ski fields and onsens in winter. 

I would definetly recommend making a trip to Tochigi to Nasu Kogen if you get the chance whatever the season.
