Nagano

Whether you want to escape for a few days or a couple of weeks, Nagano is just the place.

Guests in this part of Nagano rub shoulders with around 360,000 residents.

It is located roughly 8 miles east of Kamiminochi and about 110 miles northwest of the national capital of Tokyo.

Ensure everyone in the family has a good time by stopping by a few of the child-friendly activities in the area. Good times and special moments await at Jigokudani Monkey Park, Chibikko Ninja Village and Kids Ninja Village.

Take photos, admire the exhibits and find out about our amazing planet at the Chausuyama Zoo. Be sure to ask at the entrance about feeding times and where to find the zoo's most popular species.

At the St. Cousair Winery, experts and amateurs alike can learn about the art and craft of winemaking, before trying out a glass or two of the finished product.

From gorgeous flowers to long and twisting garden paths, the treasures of the Togakushi Forest Botanical Garden are waiting to be discovered. You can also go on a pleasant walk through the Floral Garden Obuse and the Nanohana Park.

With plenty of pamphlets and maps on hand, Happo Information Center is the place to discover what's going on in Nagano.

There's nothing like an afternoon at Naenataki Falls to remind you of the power and beauty of Mother Nature. You might also enjoy taking up a clear vantage point at Kaminari-daki Waterfall and Yonako Great Falls.

Lakes almost always draw in an interesting array of creatures. Take a pair of binoculars to Lake Hokuryuko and Kagami-ike Pond and see what you can spy. If that doesn't work out, perhaps you'll have more luck at Daizahoshi Pond or Lake Kagami-ike.

Turn off your phone and have a break from the modern world at Joshinetsu Kogen National Park and Chubu-Sangaku National Park. Nature-loving travelers will also have an excellent time at Mount Yokote and Tsugaike Natural Park.

Expand your knowledge by spending some time at one of the area's wonderfully curated exhibition spaces. The Hakuba Mini Train Park and the Togakushi Soba Museum offer a range of collections that are sure to capture your attention. Another two worth considering are the Togakure Ninpo Museum and the Former Matsushiro Literary and Military School.

Whiz kids should check out Yamazaki Farm, a fun science and technology museum.

Our world is a weird and wonderful place. If you are prone to think otherwise, a day spent at the Taikan Bonsai Museum and the Lake Nojiri Naumann Elephant Museum ought to be enough to change your mind. The Nagano City Museum also boasts a remarkable array of specimens.

An oasis for art lovers, this area is home to a nice range of spaces in which amateur and professional artists exhibit their wares. Start your explorations of this creative destination at the Nagano Prefectural Shinano Art Museum and the Hokusai Museum. If you have time afterwards, the Kitano Museum of Art and the Hakuba Art Museum are also well worth checking out.

History buffs will love passing some time at the Sanada Treasure Museum, learning about tomorrow by studying the past. To get a better feel for how things were for our ancient ancestors, why not also acquaint yourself with the wide variety of displays at the Kozan Takai Memorial Museum and the Suzaka Municipal Museum?

To learn more about the area's rich and colorful past, consider visiting its many historic sites. Begin your local history tour at the Nio-mon Gate or the Sanmon Gate. You might also like to take a few photos at Matsushiro Underground Imperial Headquarters and Sanada House.

There is an impressive history that can be witnessed on the grounds of the area's castles and fortresses. You don't have to be from the Middle Ages to be excited by Matsushiro Castle.

Whether you consider yourself spiritual or not, you're sure to have a pleasant time at the Zenko-ji Temple and Togakushi Shrine. You may also like to read up on Zozan Shrine or the Chokoku-ji Temple.

This region's most acclaimed sights can overshadow its less known, yet equally rewarding activities. A couple of interesting places to begin with are the Zozan Memorial Museum and the Happo-one Adam Gondola. If you have more time to spare, also visit the Machi Tosho Terrasow and Joyama Park.
