Yonezawa is full of rural beauty and countryside calmness with lots of fruits and other foods. Locals will tell you it's famous for "ABC": "apples" (gosh, I've never had this big and shining one before!), beef (we don't have that fantastic taste in America!!), and carp (see also: every big pond in the entire country). Impressive two years of my life. Nice salary, though. Thanks for the free money!!!!
