3. Activities you can choose from:

 

Zenko-ji Temple & Sake Tasting (All Year Round) – Duration: 1.5 hours

 

Zenko-ji temple was one of the first Buddhist temples to be established in Japan and as such, is rich in history and folk tales from its near-1400 year history. The main hall of the temple is the third largest wooden temple in Japan and a registered National Treasure. Be guided through the precinct and learn of its unique history. When visiting Zenko-ji Temple we can also arrange sake tasting without additional charge. As Japan’s second largest producer of sake, no visit to Nagano is complete without diving into the warm and indulgent world of sake. Let your guide introduce you to the best that Nagano has to offer!

 

 

Explore the Town of Obuse (All Year Round) – Duration: 1.5 – 2 hours

 

Explore the picturesque town of Obuse and its remaining Edo-style buildings. Known for its historic character, chestnut delicacies and sake breweries, Obuse is a popular destination for Japanese as home to the Hokusai Museum, showcasing the life and work of the country’s most influential artist, Hokusai Katsushika. The world-famous artist spent some of his final years in Obuse and painted his final masterpiece here. As one of the few (if perhaps only) Japanese artist to influence Western art movements, a visit to Obuse is your chance to view and discover the masterful work of a universally acclaimed artist.

 

 

Snow Fun in Shiga Kogen (End of December – March) – Duration: 2.5 hours

 

Let’s face it. Skiing and snowboarding usually requires a lot of practice and first-timers spend more time on their backsides than they do on their feet! Why put yourself through that when you can enjoy a morning or afternoon of snow fun using a range of snow-specific gear including snow scoots, sit-down skiing or  sleds and tubes! Suitable (and fun) for both children and adults alike, this activity is designed for everyone, whether its your first time in snow or you’re a seasoned veteran of the slopes. Sliding down some gentle, tree-lined courses in Japan’s largest ski resort always gets a positive reaction from skiers and snowboarders because it just looks fun! If the weather is good, your guide will also take you to the top of the mountain where you can enjoy stunning panorama view of the Northern winter Nagano!

 

 

Hot Spring Onsen Experience (All Year Round) – Duration: 1 hour

Nagano is blessed with numerous ‘onsen’ (natural hot springs) and the odd onsen-bathing monkey. But if you’re a human and would also like to experience this most Japanese of custom, we are happy to arrange a visit to a local hot spring to soak and unwind in the warm thermal waters of this ancient island country. The private onsen is gender-mixed and has an outdoor bath including rental towels. Please note that due to the size of the hot spring bath, this activity is for a group for up to 8 people and is available for 50 minutes per a group.
