Shimoguri no sato下栗の里

OO no Mori/Sato, Furusatomura / Shizen no Ie, etc.

This is an area on a slope altitude of 800–1,000 meters overlooking the Southern Alps (Akaishi Mountains). The beautiful sight of dotted houses and tea fields means it has been designated as one of Japan’s 100 villages, and because it looks like Austria’s Tirol area it is also occasionally called Japan’s Tirol. The Sky Village Viewpoint is maintained by volunteers and is recommended as it offers a wide view over the village’s scenery.

          Nagano Main Areas


          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.
