  • Toto's story came to recreate the scenery. What a lavender field, school or whatever. Iwasaki Chihiro's draft of work or whatever, your stuff is also earnest. Special exhibitions are also highly recommended.

  • As can be seen from the perspective of the child exhibits and the child-friendly facilities, such as the "children's room" is equipped with. Some of the hand touching the read is possible, books etc. Azumi-Chihiro Park that features a large lawn. Because you can re-enter the children get bored Museum outside can play. Mont Blanc train Park library's large-sized books. Summer it can also play a little.

  • A 30 minutes walk from Shinano-Matsukawa station. Whats the Scones in the book Café in the hotel. Coupled with the seasonal Apple jam and whipped cream, and very helpful. Invited to the cheerful calm, outdoors, but an idyllic landscape was very relaxing. You want to come again.

  • Iwasaki Art Museum you can enjoy a world of Chihiro. There are small children, wooden toys and picture books for young children. You can also water in the summer garden is a grass and so shallow ponds and waterways. Also, works of art? Also because there is a mirror to place some children there reflected the face many times played ☆ next on-site Totto-Chan library or reproduction in the classroom at the time, and train. You might bring your lunch before the train has a large table and chairs so ♡ on-site café and terrace, kids can take the wooden seesaw. Pudding is delicious heart heart

  • 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.
