Ina is located approximately 100 miles (161 kilometers) from Tokyo, the country's capital, and about 75 miles (121 kilometers) from Nagoya.
It's a missed chance if you limit your tour to the attractions of Ina because the surrounding region has been graced with numerous terrific cultural and natural attractions. Head 7 miles (11 kilometers) north to Komagane, where you can enjoy the Nezame no Toko and Utaki Otaki Hot Spring.
When vacationing in Ina, see Nagano. Approximately 60 miles (97 kilometers) away, this regional transport and shopping hub is home to Nagano Olympic Stadium, Nozawa Onsen Snow Resort and Zenkoji. If you have enough time, consider checking out Togakushi Shrine, Nagano Prefectural Shinano Art Museum and Shiga Kogen Ski Area before you head back to Ina.
For a window into the local culture, go straight to Nagano 's art museums, theaters and art galleries. Head outdoors and enjoy Nagano 's open-air markets, open-air museums and gardens.
Why not relax and enjoy during gentle pastimes such as camping or cycling. Both are well-loved options for both travelers and locals alike. Enjoy a break from sightseeing and cool off with a spot of boating or sailing.
Everything must end sometime, but be rest assured, when it's time to leave the region, you'll still have many special memories to remember your time here.
