Hi would like to know if you recommend any itinerary for a couple travelling to Japan for 8N (Arrive on 12 October)
So far on my list
- Yamanouchi (Snow Money)
- Takayama (Old town + Hilda Beef)
Do you have any other place to recommend?
Would like to enjoy onsen (My girlfriend would like mixed gender outdoor onsen, wonder if you have any to recommend?)
Thanks for contacting us with your question about visiting Nagano.
Recently, we posted a model course through the Japanese Alps which includes Matsumoto, Kamikochi, Norikura Kogen, Shirahone Onsen, Takayama and Shirakawa-go. You may find it useful in your trip planning.
You may be particularly interested in Shirahone’s Awa no Yu hot spring, which has a large outdoor mixed bath. You can use it if you stay at the Awa no Yu hotel, or as a day visitor any day of the week between 10:30 and 13:30 (1,000 yen per person).
There are many more places to choose from, so I recommend browsing through the site to get a sense of Nagano’s other destinations. If you have any other questions, please let me know.
