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: Nakanojo-machi (Japan's Highest National Highway Point & Okushima Lake), Kusatsu-machi (Yubatake, Netsunoyu, & more) and Matsumoto (Japan Ukiyo-e Museum, Matsumoto Castle, & more). On the 1st (Wed), spend an exhilarating day on the slopes at Maiko Snow Resort. There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Zenko-ji Temple, admire the sheer force of Shiraito Falls, fly down the slopes at Nozawa Onsen Ski Resort, and browse the different shops at Karuizawa prince shopping plaza.

For where to stay and other tourist information, read our Nagano online tour itinerary planner .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Toyama Airport, Komatsu Airport and Niigata Airport. In December in Nagano, expect temperatures between 43°F during the day and 32°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 14th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
