Nagatoro is one of my best memories of Japan so far. I had an amazing time there. I was surprised when I learned that it was the Arakawa River flowing through the area. I’m looking forward to visiting again when I have the chance
I am a PR staff member of the Cool Japan Video Photo Contest.

Thank you for your continued support of COOL JAPAN VIDEOS.
COOL JAPAN VIDEOS Photo Contest PRIntroducing the photos posted on "Everyone's Post"! This is a pickup post of the inbound tourism information SNS "Cool Japan Video". Today, I would like to introduce a post by "k Yoji". It captures the beauty and tranquility of nature. Nagatoro-cho, Chichibu-gun, Saitama Prefecture, is an area rich in nature located in western Saitama Prefecture, about 120 minutes by train from Tokyo. The entire town is designated as Nagatoro-Tamayodo Nature Park. Nagatoro's popular activities, such as playing in the river and rafting, are full of charm. The "Nagatoro Line Kudari" and "Nagatoro Rafting Tour" that go down the upper reaches of the Arakawa River by boat allow you to enjoy a thrilling experience while enjoying the nature of the four seasons. In addition, "Nagatoro Kosawaen", where you can barbecue while playing in the river, sells barbecue sets, so it is safe to go empty-handed (you cannot bring your own in this facility). We also recommend the Nagatoro Auto Campsite, where glamping and bungalows can be used. There are plenty of sightseeing spots where you can enjoy a superb view. "Nagatoro Valley Iwatami Mat" is a spot that represents Nagatoro, which is also called the "window of the earth" where you can observe historical geological formations, and is a nationally designated Place of Scenic Beauty and a natural monument. For Hodosan recommended for strolling, you can go up to the summit station with the "Hodosan Ropeway". You can enjoy seasonal scenery such as cold cherry blossoms, cherry blossoms, azaleas, and autumn leaves. In addition, Nagatoro Town is a famous place for cherry blossoms that has been selected as one of the "100 best cherry blossom spots" Japan. The so-called "cherry blossom tunnel" connecting Nagatoro Station and Nogami Station is a row of cherry blossom trees that stretches for about 2.5 km. It is also recommended for viewing by car. The promenade "Passing through cherry blossoms" at the foot of Hodosan is also a popular cherry blossom spot with more than 30 types of cherry blossoms and about 500 cherry trees planted. Both are illuminated during the best time to see them, and you can enjoy the cherry blossoms at night. ◆Nagatoro Town Tourism Association◆ 【Address】369-1305 Saitama-ken, Chichibu-gun, Nagatoro-cho, Nagatoro 529-1 【Access】Seibu Ikebukuro Line (Limited Express) to Seibu Chichibu about 80 minutes (Please see the official website for details.) ） ★ The 17th COOL JAPAN VIDEOS Photo Contest is currently being held with the theme of "Japan's best known sightseeing spots"!
