Hi all! We will visit Nagano from Feb. 06 until Feb. 12. and planned to visit Kiso Valley. I read that there are Ice Lantern Festivals in various Towns during this period, but I could not find any exact dates (except the one in Narai on Feb. 03 which we will unfortunately miss). Perhaps you can help me with more detailed information for better planing. Thank you very much.

Hi Egbert,

I have just added an announcement about the Kiso Valley Ice Lantern Festival on the front page of the website. You can see it here. It has all of the dates and locations of the festival as well as several links to more information about the Kiso Valley.

If you’d like any more information about the festival or Nagano in general, don’t hesitate to open another question, or email us at

Thanks for your question.
