Shimosuwa (Nagano Prefecture), historically a resting station for travellers on the key Edo-era mountain highway of Nakasendo, is most famous for its colourful and exhilarating Onbashira Festival which is held every six years. If your visit doesn’t coincide with the festival, there is still much to be enjoyed, including museums, shrines, and the scenery around Lake Suwa, and the rivers that run into it.
