    Nagano Nagano-shi Daimoncho 67-1
    An elegant French restaurant which fully makes use of the attractive building it operates out of, a designated National Tangible Cultural Property. This red brick, Western-style building was originally built in 1912 as an office for the Shinanochu Gyuba Goshi Kaisha shipping company. In addition to its standard menu, on Tuesdays with an advance reservation, customers can savor a full course French meal prepared by Hideyo Kitamura, one of Nagano's top French cuisine masters.

    Lunch set was very nice, pleasant place. Unfortunately, the salmon that I have inquire about was not really smoked, as shown in the photo and as I was told. It was more cooked, but still it was nice.

Nagano Areas

around-area-map

Nagano prefecture is an exciting mix of mountains, hot spring monkeys, and preserved Edo history. At the heart of the Japanese Alps, Nagano is one of the country’s most popular destinations, whether in winter for its snow sports and the much-loved Jigokudani Monkey Park or in the warmer months for discovering the undulating hills on foot. For fantastic Edo architecture, head to the Kiso Valley for a 60-kilometer stretch of quaint wooden buildings that marked the Nakasendo route 200 years ago.
