The Six Regions of Nagano
From the temple town Monzen of Zenkoji Temple to the town of Obuse. Northern Nagano is an area packed with history and culture, drawing people to the dynamic nature that can only be found here.
Seeking the blessings brought by the mountains, we head to the Japan Alps area. Enjoy a variety of outdoor activities in the idyllic countryside at the base of the mountains. Surrounded by nature, relax your body and mind, and enjoy a luxurious trip.
Eastern Nagano, characterized by its expansive fields of grain that follow the course of the Chikuma River, is known for the area of Karuizawa, which has a long history as a highland resort. With many days of clear weather each year, it is an area abundant with local products such as vegetables and wine.
Home to Suwa Taisha Shrine, the venerable Suwa Area radiates history and culture. Head further afield to reach the highlands of Kirigamine, Central Yatsugatake and Fujimi and enjoy the expansive nature around you.
Drawing attention as Nagano Prefecture's first Japan Heritage site, the Kiso Valley is a living, breathing example of our predecessors' ingenuity and culture. The eleven post towns of the Nakasendo Road that are found in the Kiso Valley are a time capsule of the Edo Period. Set foot in Kiso and head on a journey to the unknown.
Take ropeways to lofty heights where alpine plants sway in the mountain breeze and enjoy the majestic scenery of the Central and Southern Alps. Awe-inspiring scenery of the great outdoors awaits you.
