Summer is in full swing and now is the perfect time for exploring Nagano’s great outdoors. Hikers climb to Nagano’s highest peaks, children splash and play in the rivers, and enthusiasts pedal along Nagano’s idyllic rice paddies.
Cycling isn’t just for fitness, it’s a great way to see Nagano’s sights and learn more about its history and culture. You’ll see the everyday lives of local farmers, ancient temples and beautiful vistas that you’d never notice by car or train. As summer turns to autumn, you can enjoy the bright red, yellow and gold leaves and crisp weather.
