So Much Snow – Yonezawa Japan

25 01 2011

iReport — Bing from New England we are used to snow and have been expiring lot’s of it this season or at least we think we are.

Yesterday I arrived in Yonezawa Japan. Yonezawa is approximately 250 miles North West of Tokyo. When we got off the Tsubsa (the famous bullet train) we saw snow, so much snow.

Yonezawa as I understand it is in the older part of Japan. Some of the things this area of Japan is know for is the samurai village, Yonezawa beef and the hot springs.

From this video I recorded yesterday you can see snow and lots of it and how Yonezawa is using the hot springs to their advantage.

Being a hearty New Englander I can handle this. After all it’s only snow!

On a recent trip to Japan I meet a new friend Koyama Yoshiyuki. He owns a local cafe and plays music guitar. On a night out at the cafe Yoshi-san (as he like to be called) played a few songs for me and gave me permission to record him for internet use. Thank you for listening to my new friend.

Go The Distance TV visits Tokyo, Yonezawa, Yamagata City Japan meeting interesting people along the way

11 10 2010

I have a show called Go The Distance TV where I like “highlighting ordinary people doing extra ordinary things”.

Go The Distance TV features ordinary people who have done extraordinary things with their lives. The hope is that by sharing their stories, others will come away inspired and motivated to find ways to “Go The Distance” in their own lives.

Because of the name of the show Go The Distance TV, I thought it would be interesting to highlight Japan, the sights, places, people and culture visited on this trip. We meet some very interesting people along the way and had fun doing it.

I hope you enjoy the show.





Nobuyuki-san Wood Carving Craftsman Japan

3 10 2010

Nobuyuki Takahashi a master wood carver (Sasano Ittobori). Nobuyuki-san has been carving Otakapoppo for 35 years now and highly recognized in Japan and around the world for his craftsmanship skills. Although Nobuyuki Takahashi pieces are simple, it takes a great deal of skill to create objects of the highest quality. His travels took him to Disneyland in Calif., on six different occasions, where his demonstrations were popular and onlookers were full of curiosity as they watched him create a bird with a layer of beautiful feathers using only his chisel and a log. We hope your inspired by Nobuyuki Takahashi skills. To See the complete video please visit Go The Distance TV. You will also find other interesting videos here from Japan.
