Nagano : Michelin's recommendations
The name of Nagano recently became inextricably linked with the Winter Olympics held here in 1998. Located in the heart of the Japan Alps, the city is surrounded by peaks, some higher than 3 000m, where the world's top athletes competed during the Games. They continue to be enjoyed by winter sport enthusiasts, who practice a variety of activities here; skaters can try out the M-Wave track. But the city's hidden treasure is one of the country's most famous temples, Zenko-ji.
