HIGHLAND

高原[KŌGEN]

A mountainous plateau. A number of popular resorts are found in highlands because of the relatively cool weather during summer. Karuizawa in Nagano Prefecture is the most renowned highland resort in Japan and regularly visited by the imperial family. Sakura’s dream since childhood is to have a wedding in a small church situated in a quiet highland village. Birds are chirping and the sunlight shining through the leaves of trees... “What a perfect image... except I need to find a partner!”
