Matsumoto castle was completed at the end of the 16th century, and as the oldest still-standing castle in Japan, a national treasure. Surrounded by cherry trees, a backdrop of the Japanese Alps, and stunning traditional architecture, Matsumoto Castle is a must see for Japanese and oversees tourists alike.

 

Zenkoji is Nagano City’s main attraction, and with 1400 years of history, a national treasure. Every year 6 million people visit this famous Buddhist temple. Rebuilt in 1707, this huge structure is a masterpiece of Buddhist-influenced architecture.

In order to build Japan’s massive Kurobe Dam, the engineers were forced to construct a complicated series of trams and other railway-like means of transport through the steep mountains to get workers and equipment to the construction sites. After the completion of the dam, they didn’t want to let their hard work go to waste, and the result is the Tateyama-Kurobe “Alpen” Route. This is a major tourist attraction and priced accordingly.
