Dear All, I am planning my year end Dec 2017 itinerary. I have rented a car from Nagoya City ( 5 days ) . I would like to know is my itinerary possible to go ? Any other attractions I have missed it? Thanks Day 1 – Pick up car from Nagoya City in the morning. Drive to Magome. Stay 1N at Magome. Plan to do : Magome hike to Tsumago. Day 2 – Depart to Shiragawa Go. Stay 1N. Visit Takayama. Day 3 – Depart to Monkey Onsen Park. On the way can I add Matsumoto Castle, Zenkoji Temple and Obuse Town? Stay Yudanaka Area. Day 4 – Visit Monkey Onsen Park & Shiga Kogen Ski Resort. Stay at Yudanaka Area Day 5 – Go to Karuizawa. Stay 1N
Your itinerary looks good to me!
I only have recommendation, and that is to use the “Park and Ride” service provided by the Nagano Dentetsu bus company when traveling to Shigakogen. The road through the mountain can be quite slippery during winter and is not suitable for drivers who are not used to winter driving.
