My husband & I would like to spend a few nights in the Tsumago/Magome area en route from Kyoto to Tokyo at the end of May. Any suggestions of places to stay, eat and things do for a reasonable price (we plan to hike the trail between the two towns)? We are very open minded, flexible and are seeking a peaceful, traditional experience to end our rather whirlwind trip. We are also open to any suggestions of alternative places to go between K&T which would have an old Japan feel with a possibility for a hike in the countryside. All responses a very much appreciated.
I'm wondering if it's feasible to drive from Nagano to Kyoto, in a day, perhaps to see a bit more than I would see on the train.
Travelling all on my lonesome... Will be in Nagano from 30th Dec to 5th Jan... anyone around for a good time?
Will it be snowing heavily there in Feb? I'm planning a short trip to Nagano with some friends and wonder whether heavy snow will make many places unaccessable by public transport. Will be based around Yudanaka to see the snow monkeys.
I am going to visit Snow Monkey at Jigokudani Yaen-koen. After Jigokudani Yaen-koen, I want to go to your Shiga Kogen ski resort. How do I get there from Jigokudani Yaen-koen to Shiga Kogen? Is there a bus that I can take? How many kilometers is it from Jigokudani Yaen-koen to Shiga Kogen? You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Does anyone know where the Europcar / mazda location is in relation to Nagano Railway Station? I have to pick a car up from there and will be arriving by train from Tokyo.
Trying to find a really nice (traditional?) Ryokan in Nagano or close to monkeys for 24th May - has to be really clean and nice want some luxury if poss - willing to pay up to 22000 yen - single room - can anybody help please
Hi! Me and my girlfriend are travelling to Japan in May. On May 1st we want to go from Tokyo to Nagano to attend a concert. The problem is that the last Shinkansen runs at 21:40 and we´re likely not making it; but we can´t afford spending 10000 yen in a Business Hotel. Is there any alternative?? Anything is valid, from a Love Hotel to a Capsule (it has to accept a man and a woman), to a 24 hour internet place, to a Youth Hostel (with no curfew, obviously); better if near JR Nagano Station, as the venue of the show is near it. Thank you very much for your help!!!
Is any body able to help me with advice re parkinging at or near the Nagano Railway Station. Thanks.
