Experience Onsen Town Togura-Kamiyamada's "Cool Japan"

Onsen Town Togura-Kamiyamada is located along the banks of the Chikuma River surrounded by hills in the countryside of Nagano Prefecture.  The location isn't some secluded remote mountain valley, nor is it a sprawling urban jungle.  It is a compact onsen resort town with 30 inns and hotels, numerous family-run restaurants, and several unique specialty shops.  This is the perfect place to experience slices of Japanese life, not in an overly-touristy way, but the way the locals do.

Following are some of the activities visitors to onsen town Togura-Kamiyamada can experience.
