Tourist Information Centers in Nagano

November 24th, 2016

Hi, We will becoming to Japan next October, already booked our flight. 4 night,3 days Tokyo. Then I had booked to go Nikko on the next day Saturday. for Autumn colour , Have since been advised it will be packed  and difficult getting to see the sights I had highlighted ( 2 waterfalls and the lake ). My plans were then next day Nagano  1 night. to go the following day on the Famous Alpine Route to finish it at Kanazawa for 2 nights. So please shall I make it 2 nights Nagano ? where can I go for lovely sightseeing/ autumn colour. I will have a 14 day rail pass.Is it any good locally?  Do not mind if not.I have to say I am 83 now but quite fit , so walking no problem though not long uphill climbs ( my knees do not like Ha ha ) In the last 7/8 years we have toured New Zealand 5 times from the top to bottom., Fantastic. But Japan has always been a place “To Visit ” So please I have asked  a big question, where do you advise us to go before the Alpine route day? How do I get to the places you recommend? ( Make it easy to understand folks Ha ha ) I am a ex UK citizen retired to Thailand. Will appreciated all advice to enjoy Japan ( Really looking forward to the world famous Japan Rail journeys)
