The pleasant scent of wood in the air, impressive Norway spruce columns, and wood beams with hand-carved engravings help make Tateshina Tokyu a classic Western-style building. The Tokyu Resort town of Tateshina is a comprehensive resort complex, complete with tennis courts, golf course, pools, and ski areas, all assuring our guests that year-round sports and recreation are always on hand.

Lake Shirakaba in Nagano
Scenic lake named after silver birch trees
Shirakaba is Japanese for 'silver birch', and there are many silver birches growing around this pretty artificial lake in Nagano Prefecture. There is a walking track around the lake, and amusement park at one end, and a small shrine with a red torii standing in the water. Mount Tateshina overlooks the lake, and there are swan boats and canoes for hire if you feel like getting out on the water.

Suwa Taisha (Suwa Grand Shrine)
Home of sacred logs and a snoring tree
Suwa Taisha (Suwa Grand Shrine) is made up of four separate complexes around Lake Suwa, which is surrounded by the Northern and Southern Japanese Alps and the Yatsugatake mountain ranges in central Nagano Prefecture. It is one of the oldest shrines in Japan at over 1,200 years old. Akimiya (the focus of this photo story) is the most popular complex since it houses the four largest sacred logs brought down the steep slopes during the famous Onbashira festival held every six years. There is also an ancient tree that supposedly snores when lowering its branches for a night’s sleep.
