Locatie en vrije tijd
Omachi City itself is centered on a 700-meter elevation river valley at the base of the 3000-meter tall Northern Japanese Alps. To the south is Matsumoto City, and to the north are the Nishina Three Lakes and the Hakuba Valley. The Omachi Onsen (hot springs) District is the entrance to the Nagano-side of the Tateyama-Kurobe Dam Alpine Route. Mt. Takagari to the east of the city offers panoramic views of the valley below and the majestic Alps in the distance. Mt. Takagari (meaning the Falconer’s Mountain) is one of the main sites for the Art Festival installations.
