... Out of the mountains and about 30 minutes from Nagano. Maleny/Montville style town. Warm here, about 24 degrees - so we were a bit hot as we dressed for the mountains. While touristy, it is quiet and unhurried. It is chestnut season for this area so speciality shops with everything "chestnut" and cafes, beautiful craft stores, sake brewery (no thanks after last nights headache), galleries and museums.

A travel blog entry by ptoj on Oct 03, 2015

He drove us to the snow monkeys, then we walked 1.6 km through the forest to see the monkeys. They were everywhere, little babies, sitting in the hot spring, picking nits from each other and ...
