Near the confluence of the Chikuma and Sai rivers, Nagano combines historic sites with nearby forested alps dotted with shrines.
Attractions like Shiraito Falls and Onioshidashi Volcanic Park make great kid-friendly stops. Get out of town with these interesting Nagano side-trips: Nozawa Onsen Ski Resort (in Nozawaonsen-mura), Yamanouchi-machi (Jigokudani Snow Monkey Park & Shigakogen Sun Valley Ski Area) and Karuizawa-machi (Harunire Terrace, Karuizawa Prince Hotel Ski Resort, & more). And it doesn't end there: take in the spiritual surroundings of Zenko-ji Temple, get in on the family fun at Chibikko Ninja Village, fly down the slopes at Togakushi Ski Area, and trek along Kurumayama Highland.

To find where to stay, ratings, other places to visit, and tourist information, go to the Nagano trip itinerary planning tool .

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major airports are Toyama Airport, Komatsu Airport and Niigata Airport. In December, plan for daily highs up to 7°C, and evening lows to 0°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Sun) so you can travel back home.
