I wonder if anyone can help me. Whilst trawling this morning through many sites I saw an opportunity to do treetop swinging or walking in a forest. I thought it was around Nagano, definitely in an Alpine area, could anyone point me in the right direction. Im visiting in May and very keen to experience it.
I have a few ideas as to where this might be, or at least some similar activities in Nagano.
