Nagano-ken Things to Do

  • Snow Monkey Park

    Nagano Things to Do

    Without a doubt, one of the coolest spectacles in all of Japan is to watch the wild snow monkeys of the Japanese Alps sit out a snowy winter day soaking in the hot waters of a naturally-heated onsen. At Jigokudani Yaenkoen monkey park, just above Nagano, you can see these migratory macaques, the world's most northerly primates (besides man) forage...

During our Shinkansen train ride from Tokyo to Nagano, we saw quite a number of young Japanese...

  • Skiing!!!

    HAKUBA SKI RESORT-- We experienced having a winter camp here and it was ammmazing. Imagine seeing snow (the Japan Alps, excuse me *wink*) for the first time and gliding on skis to boot. It was embarassing falling face-down on the al-white mountain, but a blushed face is common anyway. And there is always the first time (yeah, right). I was pretty...

  • Urugi: Let someone take you there

    URUGINagano PrefectureThis is a small mountain village at the bottom of Nagano Prefecture bordering Gifu and Aichi. Farmers. Few Stores. Police Station. School. Fields and fields of cultivation. The golden colour of rice. Vegetables. No fruits. I realize the fruits are more abundant in the tropics, but here there are delicious vegetables- ripe...
