Shiojiri Vacation Packages


Shiojiri City is located in the approximate center of Nagano Prefecture, at the southern end of the Matsumoto basin. This means that it is practically the geographical centre of Japan, and thus has long been important as a strategic traffic point. Going back to the Edo Period (1603–1868), there were five main highways in Japan, and because of sankinkotai, roads and post stations were maintained. Since ancient times it, has been an important junction on the transport routes linking the Sea of Japan to the Pacific Ocean. The post town of Narai-juku is a popular place to visit, where buildings hundreds of years old still line the ancient highway. Now, a major rail line passes through and the town's station has become a major rail junction.
