48 Hours in Nagano City
In 1998, Nagano City hosted the Winter Olympic Games and introduced the world to the Japanese Alps, the Jigokudani Snow Monkey Park, and glorious Japanese powder (or, “japow”). But that isn’t all that the area has to offer. With beautiful Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines in the heart of Japan’s mountains, Nagano City is a hub of spiritual sites and natural splendor. Take a model 2-day trip around Nagano City and enjoy another side of Japan!
Tasting Sake in the Japanese Countryside
There's no better place to learn about and taste sake than Japan's many sake breweries.
