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.

If you’re interested in walking through forests, check out the Akasawa Forest Park in Kiso, the Togakushi Okusha Shrine, and Iiyama’s beech tree forests.

I hope that helps!
