Plan Description

Fee explanation

Tour route introduction

Sasa no Homare (brewery introduction)
Sasa no Homare Brewery and Sake Manufacturing Ltd. is a small brewery situated in Matsumoto City’s Shimauchi neighborhood, at the confluence of subterranean rivers coming from the base of the Northern Alps and the Utsukushigahara Highlands. By utilizing delicate temperature control and pouring their passion into their work day after day, the brewery aims for a sake that is “full-bodied and thick, with a gentle acidity, and a sweetness that makes it easy to enjoy with meals”.

Jigokudani Monkey Park |Welcome to the world of the Japanese macaque


Jigokudani Monkey Park is located in the valley of the Yokoyu River, which originates on the Shiga Highlands of Jōshin'etsu-kōgen National Park, in the northern part of Nagano Prefecture. Troops of Japanese macaques have been living here in the wild for a long time. Ever since its opening in 1964, the Jigokudani Monkey Park is loved by many around the whole world, both as a place where the macaques’ highly interesting mode of life can be observed from near, and for its monkeys bathing in hot springs.

Zenkō-ji


The Zenkō-ji holds the Amida Triad statue that is said to be the oldest ever brought to Japan. Due to the temple solicitation and religious statue exhibitions performed by the monks of Zenkō-ji, at the end of the Edo era, it was often said that Zenkō-ji “needs to be visited once in a lifetime”. Nowadays, thanks to the exhibitions due to the year of the ox and the year of the sheep, even more people visit the temple than usual.

Daiō Wasabi Farm


Found in a section of the Azumino spring water group (which is made up of spring water from the Northern Alps), this is Japan’s largest wasabi farm, and also Azumino’s prime sightseeing spot, with about 1,200,000 yearly visitors. It is also known as the location of the director Akira Kurosawa’s movie “Dreams”. Famous products available in the shop: wasabi soft-serve ice cream, wasabi croquet.

Matsumoto Castle


Matsumoto Castle is Japan’s oldest among the existing five structure / six story castle towers, which became a national treasure. The contrast of black and white in front of the Alps creates a magnificent background.

Takabocchi Ranch (Takabocchi Skyline)


The area spanning from the Takabocchi Highlands to Mount Hachibuse is called Takabocchi Skyline. This is an exhilarating driving route with amazing scenery.
