Nagano Travel Guide
Nagano Prefecture is located at the center of Japan. It is surrounded by 8 prefectures. (Niigata, Toyama, Aichi, Gifu, Shizuoka, Yamanashi, Gunma, Saitama). Nagano Prefecture is a prefecture located in the Chubu region of Japan. The capital is the city of Nagano.
Nagano has impressive highland areas, including most of the Kita-Alps, Chuo-Alps, and Minami-Alps, which extend into the neighbouring prefectures. Due to the abundance of mountain ranges in this area, the land available for inhabitance is relatively limited. In addition to its natural scenic beauty and rich history, Nagano was host to the 1998 Winter Olympics, which gained the prefecture international recognition as a world-class winter sport destination, and a Shinkansen line to Tokyo.
Nagano is an inland prefecture and it borders more prefectures than any other in Japan. Nagano contains the point furthest from the sea in the whole of Japan—this point lies within the city of Saku. The province’s mountains have made it relatively isolated, and many visitors come to Nagano for its mountain resorts and hot springs. Nine of the twelve highest mountains in Japan can be found in Nagano and one of its lakes, Lake Kizaki, is a beach resort popular for its water attractions and games.
The Matsushiro district features samurai homes and buildings such as the 19th-century Matsushiro Samurai School. In nearby Obuse town, Hokusaikan Museum exhibits woodblock prints by Edo-period artist Katsushika Hokusai. To the northeast are the stone-paved spa village of Shibu Onsen, Jigokudani Monkey Park, where wild macaques bathe in hot springs, and Nozawa Onsen ski town. Nagano hosted the 1998 Winter Games, and the towering mountain ranges of the Japanese Alps lie west, home to ski resorts such as Hakuba. South of the capital is Matsumoto city, where a moat-encircled 16th-century castle offers views from its black tower.
