Nagano Prefecture is located in the Chubu region in Honshu. The capital is Nagano-shi. It is bordered by eight prefectures: Gunma, Saitama, Yamanashi, Shizuoka, Aichi, Gifu, Toyama, and Niigata. The climate is characterized by large temperature differences between summer and winter, and between day and night.

The Hida mountain range (Northern Alps), the Kiso mountain range (Central Alps), and the Akaishi mountain range (Southern Alps) are known as the roof of Japan. Kamikochi and Karuizawa are popular tourist destinations for highland resorts and winter ski resorts.
