Ueda is located 100 miles (161 kilometers) northwest of Yokohama and about 95 miles (153 kilometers) northwest of Tokyo, Japan's capital.
Staying in only one place, regardless of its popularity, will only ever furnish you with a narrow window into the wider personality of a region.

Hakuba 47 Winter Sports Park, Nagano Olympic Stadium and Nagano Prefectural Shinano Art Museum are more attractions here that should be included on every traveler's list.
Nagano is a great vacation choice for those who get excited about farms, gardens and open-air markets. Feel as though you are going back in time in the Nagano area. Discover some of the old towns for which this part of the world is well known.
When it gets cold, head to Nagano. Pull on your woollens and have a go at the wintersports here. Try cross-country skiing or snow shoeing. There can be times when the best way to get a feel for a place is by hiring local guides. This region offers some interesting city walking tours, culinary tours and wildlife spotting tours.
