It was a quiet and early start to the day with the sky being mostly cloudy and the winds feeling cool. The streets were packed full of shops and restaurants. All was extremely clean with not even the slightest sight of rubbish. Like the majority of Japan, the streets are kept to the ultimate cleanliness but some places you still do see some litter. But Nagano, from what I saw was impeccable, like a movie set, it didn’t feel real despite the fact that I was there.
