This stunning alpine plateau (2000m) boasts over 200 varieties of flora which come alive in the Summer. It's a great daytrip from Matsumoto (612m), reached via an ooh-and-ahh drive on twisty mountain roads called Azalea Line and Venus Line (open late April to early November). A car will give you freedom to explore the beauty, but there's also a bus, in season (¥1500 one-way, 1½ hours).
