  • Hiruzen went after a long time. Maintained cycle paths still soft cow smell hung in the air (lol) and because the car was laden with bicycles cycling. From holiday villages around the Hill pretty hardcoded 30 k seems to be since there were abandoned in the middle. Because it was going to rain. Gently with a mild season, was going to a. I ate at somen, hiruzen!

  • Spacious, it feels good. Mountains and Sun are comforted and feel close. Come in the summer and can be really refreshing.
