The Surprise Observatory

"Dude, is that an observatory?" "It sure looks like one."

And it was. Our hostess had a passion for travel and knowledge, but most of all, astronomy. On clear nights, she takes interested guests out to the observatory to see the skies above Tazawako with her rather powerful telescope. We were fortunate to have two clear nights with her seeing Jupiter and Saturn was incredible!
