    Spectacular Sanctuary (this is the "middle") located on the outskirts of Nagano (need to take a bus to get there). It is divided into three, actually, and although you can walk from one to another along paths that are in the mountain, depending on the time it may be too much (for heat). What I recommend is to take the bus to the sanctuary above (so called) and visit it, which in itself is pretty hard with a long way and many stairs then, to take a bus that will take us to the Middle sanctuary, and return to take another bus that leads then to the bottom.
