Nagano's Oldest Hot Spring and Scenic Countryside

Shiodadaira is the name of the wide flatlands you come to while heading east from Ueda Station towards Bessho Onsen on the Ueda Dentetsu Line. Like Bessho Onsen, it has many old and interesting buildings that have survived from the middle ages.

From the window of a quaint local train enjoy idyllic rice fields and by historical temples and shrines, or take a stroll or cycle though the historical hot spring village of Bessho.
