Nagano

4
Near the confluence of the Chikuma and Sai rivers, Nagano combines historic sites with nearby forested alps dotted with shrines. Once a temple city centered around an ancient Buddhist temple, Nagano evolved into a modern prefectural capital with all the facilities one would expect from a major hub. Sightseeing in Nagano usually includes the central temple, which houses the first ever Buddhist statue brought to Japan in the sixth century, as well as a sake brewery and a prime arts museum. You can also see the site of a famous 16th-century battle between two clans, which has been turned into park featuring a museum, or tour the Olympic facilities that once housed 1998 winter games. The city, which turns into a well-loved ski spot during winter, is famous for its soba noodles. Nagano is in Nagano Prefecture. With the Inspirock world travel planner, Nagano and other destinations across the globe can be made central to your personalized travel plans.
