Visiting the family grave in autumn

Today I took a day off from the office to visit the family grave which is in Nagano prefecture, my grandfather’s hometown. Now no relative lives there, just some gravestone in the graveyard which belongs to a big temple. I haven’t gone there fore more than a year so decided to visit before the winter would come - they have a lot of snow in winter in Nagano and our family grave is on hillside so we can’t visit it in midwinter.
The weather is wonderful today, the sky was blue and some tree leaves are yellow or red. At our family grave the air was fresh and we(I and mother) enjoyed the view of the town, lake and mountains.

After visiting the grave we enjoyed hot spring, then took a express train going back to Tokyo area. This was a nice visit but it took almost 3 and a half hours (for one way) to go there. My next visit must be after the spring of next year...
