We are perfectly located in Nagano historic center with the ZENKOJI TEMPLE within walking distance.
We’re a block from MAIN STREET, 6min walk from the ZENKOJI, & an easy stroll to just about everywhere else. NAGANO CITY takes public transportation pretty seriously. You can hop a train or a bus and get most places from us. You can easily meet many people and socialize even if traveling alone in our lovely comfortable common room. Come experience our unique atmosphere and discover Nagano with us! Read more
