Shiga Kogen Nature Conservation Center

Today isn't a great day to go out and ski... But you can go out and ski/snowboard anyway or, perhaps, spend the day shopping those traditional souvenirs we usually try to find at the last minutes of our last day travelling. Which normally, is hard to find what we want to.
Here are some more options of Omiyage. This time, all from Shiga Kogen Nature Conservation Center.

These wooden puzzles illustrates beautiful animals and plants that can be found at Shiga Kogen.

Handmade chopsticks

A little notebook with Shiga Kogen flower's illustrations

Illustrated postcards of Shiga Kogen's flowers.

And, finally, this interesting craftwork sounds just like a bird!
