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: Nozawa Onsen Ski Resort (in Nozawaonsen-mura), Yamanouchi-machi (Jigokudani Snow Monkey Park & Shigakogen Sun Valley Ski Area) and Kusatsu-machi (Yubatake & Onsen Resorts). There's lots more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Zenko-ji Temple, admire the sheer force of Shiraito Falls, browse the different shops at Karuizawa prince shopping plaza, and hit the slopes at Shiga Kogen.
