Description of this tour

Nagano prefecture is famous for its rich nature and it’s magnificent mountain ranges and is famous for being the host of the Olympic Winter Games. For this reason, it has become a popular place to visit. In Nagano, not only can you enjoy skiing in the winter and cycling in the summer, but there are many sightseeing spots too. Nagano is unique with its fresh crisp air as well as smells and sounds you won’t find in other famous parts of Japan such as Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto. In other words, Nagano is the perfect environment to further develop your senses. In this tour, we picked out the spots you can go to by car.
It is possible for you to go around these places without a rental car. However, a rental car enables you to go around as much as you like whenever you want.
Let’s get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city, use all five senses to the fullest and take in everything Nagano has to offer!

We will find a professional Japanese guide for you when you send us a message. They will work together with you to customize the tour according to your preferences and budget.
