Thank you for your inquiry regarding Kamesei Ryokan. We provide free shuttle service to/from Togura Station which is 25 minutes from Nagano Station. From Nagano Station, it is a 2km walk or bus ride to Zenkoji Temple.

We can also provide shuttle service for Obasute Station which is a 45 minute train ride from Matsumoto for seeing the castle there.
Alternatively, from Obasute S.A. on the Nagano Expressway, it is possible to take a bus to Kamikochi in the Japanese Alps for the day.
So we are centrally located to many great locations in Nagano.
