    Historic Castle Remains of Ueda and Komoro

    Nagano
    7 hours

    Have you ever been to castle remains of local cities? The sizes are not so big, but they stimulate your imaginations on the samurai period of Japan. Ueda castle used to belong to the Sanada clan and they are very popular among Japanese history lovers. Komoro castle is also unique because it was built lower than the castle town and called "Ana-jiro" a hole castle. These two sites are also good places for local people to stroll.

    Snow Monkey Park, by Snow Monkey Train

    Nagano
    7 hours

    Jigokutani Yaen Koen, so-called the Snow Monkey Park, is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Nagano. If you are lucky, you will see some monkeys bathing in the hot spring. The natural trail is often frozen and slippery in winter season. Now is the time spring is coming just around the corner. It is easier to reach the spot than in winter though there still remains snow yet. How about enjoying a special train ride and encountering monkeys in the natural settings?
