  • Wild Chihiro Art Museum Azumino went on public buses. Than I thought, Iwasaki Chihiro paintings at least, I was a little disappointed, but space is used to luxury was the Museum can take it easy.

  • Companion pets from entering the hotel combined with combination does not leave, I don't combine. Is still green grass and ponds with plenty of garden to walk their dog very was pleasant, and Iwasaki Chihiro villas and Totto-Chan was thoroughly enjoyable and reproduces the Tokiwa Gakuen was through the train, instead of entering the hotel.

And local junior high school students helping previously when you participate in workshop area and felt it was a nice Art Museum became one. Facilities operated by the municipal park adjacent to the newly made rice ball making and pizza making experience at around 500 yen, children who spend the day places.

  • Staff employee's repose Hakuba stayed in the previous day's white horse and went, but to be honest, than great location. A huge exhibit admission occurs in the Museum of the history of the author suggests too many places, impressive enough. Exhibition area is photography is prohibited, but otherwise there is an all-you-can-eat photos. Cafe amuse a toddler, and space, library, workshops for children, plenty of. Museum shops are terrible, with awesome size and location. JAF members are allowed admission fee discount because you forgot your card no. Per will apply up to 2. The facility further beside the Museum of fine arts have released free of charge as a vast park. It can come in the only Park in the free space, such as the railcars renovated room and old authors Villa. Other amenities include a large free car park. It was a wonderful facility that can be recommended to everyone. Come to memories of Nagano.

  • Too many times to come could easily spend. The space has been organized around with confidence is also the children and the guests can read books with children there have me here. In the buildings and the landscape and the skin was very well furnished but to sarcasm is always likable.
