Around Trip Nagano

Ukiyo-e and contemporary art.
An overwhelming Instagram-worthy world where ancient and modern art intersects

Only one hour by plane from Kobe Airport, near Central Osaka and you'll arrive at Matsumoto, the gateway to Nagano, one of Japan's leading art centers. Iconic building such as Matsumoto Castle that houses the collections of the warlords, and is a designated National Treasure; the Matsumoto City Museum of Art, exhibiting works by world-famous artist Yayoi Kusama (from Nagano) and the Migahara Kogen Museum of Art exhibiting about 350 works of art, situated on a plateau overlooking magnificent mountain scenery, all greet the art lover. Why not spend your time exclusively in Nagano, an important center of creativity, while enjoying the scenic drive between these noted art bases. The lush mountain scenery and delicious gastonomy of the region will enhance your experience.
