Kurumayama-kogen Highland車山高原

Plateau

This is a beautiful highland that spreads out around Mt. Kuruma, the highest peak in the Kirigamine Mountain Range, where around 600 types of alpine plants grow. The view from Mt. Kuruma’s summit is exquisite, overlooking the Southern Alps (Akaishi Mountains), Mt. Fuji, Mt. Yatsugatake and the Asama Mountain Range. In summer one can enjoy hiking or trekking, and in winter skiing.

Reviewed:2018/07/18 Great view of the prairie and the surrounded mountain!
Easy to climbing to the top from the nearest parking. We can enjoy it's view like Kirigamine Prairie and Lake Shilakaba.

A truly beautiful and serene spot in Japan and so different from the usually wooded forests of Naganoken. This place is so vastly different to the Japan I know that for a moment I felt as if I were...

Picturesque setting for a postcard. Music is in the ai at this amazing and quaint location giving best views for a vacation far from the city.

          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.
