japanzuki - nagano photo


The journey to Nagano is a beautiful train raid through the Japanese countryside. The sight will make you forget the many stations to reach destination, and Mount Fuji saw from the right windows is going to make the all journey worth it.

Rise fields and fruit cultivations surround the area that feels like ancient Japan. We are almost 3 train hours from Tokyo e here nature is still predominant. Nagano’s atmosphere is like the essence of its residents, simple and very affectionate people.

Breathing fresh mountain air, resting in the warm water of the onsen, and admiring breathtaking sights like Hakuba and Matsumoto Castle make this city so unique.
