Ina’s Night


I love the cities like, Tokyo and Osaka, but, one thing that Nagano got over other cities are not only it’s gorgeous nature but also, it’s beautiful night skies.

The other night we were trying to catch a shot of the milky way.

Unfortunately, there was a bit of cloud blocking our way of a good shot. Not only that but, I was a bit of an impatient person and it wasn’t quiet yet the perfect time yet to go sky shooting not to mention a full moon was on it’s way so, it was the darkest night of the month either.

Not to self:

  • Check weather forecast in advance to insure a clear sky.
  • Know the dates of the upcoming sky events, i.e full moon, lunar eclipse, solar eclipse, meteor shower, etc.

I lived in the east coast part of America all my life and now living in Japan. There are many interesting things to do on a daily and I want to share what I can.
