Nagano Outdoor Whisky Festival 2012

It's that time of year, where yet again, outdoor adventurers and whisky enthusiasts come together to experience the finest pleasures of life. Last year, for the very first time in Japan, an outdoor whisky festival took place at the foothills of Nagawa-machi, Nagano. Back by popular demand, the Scotch Club in association with Mamoru Tsuchiya, the man behind the Whisky World magazine, will once again throw the event at the Blanche Takayama Ski Resort, which during summer opens up to picturesque blue skies and rewarding fresh air. Just as last year, it appears there will be yet again 150 domestic and international whiskies up for offer with the majority available for free tasting, with the exception of rare bottlings in which a small fee (generally 500 yen) is required (like most whisky festivals). For those lucky enough to be residing in Tokyo, a 1-hour trip is all it takes to get to the outdoor festival. The festival, which is on September 16, appears to have the same entertainment as last year: BBQs, an evening bonfire, bands, soba making, contests, and various stalls selling food, so fun for everyone, considering making it a family day out.
