The final stop on the Nagano Shinkansen Line in the city of Nagano, the capital of Nagano Prefecture.
It used to be famous for its temple-like station building, but was reconstructed in a modern elevated design when the shinkansen line was opened.
Nagano Station is a starting point for trips to Zenkoji Temple and Tokagushi Shrine, as well as to Shiga Kogen (Shiga Highland), Nozawa Onsen and the Northern Alps.
The sight of wild snow monkeys taking a hot spring bath is very famous. Foreign mass media often show videos of Jigokudani Onsen, and the snow monkeys have been featured in publications such as TIME magazine.
