Nagano City began as a temple town 1,400 years ago that developed with Zenkoji Temple at its center.

The Nagano City Guide Association will lead you along the main street from JR Nagano Station to Zenkoji’s main gate. Along the way, we will introduce historic spots as well as local foods and culture as we explore Nagano’s charming narrow streets. The guides will share the local culture and customs of Nagano with you to create a memorable experience.

After our guided tour ends at the main gate, we highly recommend that you venture into Zenkoji Temple and experience Eastern Japan’s most famous temple for yourself.
