Near the confluence of the Chikuma and Sai rivers, Nagano combines historic sites with nearby forested alps dotted with shrines.
Change things up with these side-trips from Nagano: Uedajo Castle (in Ueda), Yamanouchi-machi (Jigokudani Snow Monkey Park & Shiga Kogen) and Daio Wasabi Farm (in Azumino). There's much more to do: step into the grandiose world of Matsumoto Castle, take in the dramatic scenery at Shiraito Falls, hit the slopes at Nozawa Onsen Ski Resort, and don't miss a visit to Yubatake.

For where to stay, other places to visit, traveler tips, and tourist information, you can read our Nagano planner .

If you are flying in from Netherlands, the closest major airports are Toyama Airport, Komatsu Airport and Niigata Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 26°C, and evening lows to 18°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
