About
Established in March 2015, this new national park is located at the border of Niigata Prefecture and Nagano Prefecture and extends over 2 prefectures and 6 municipalities such as Itoigawa City, Myoko City, Nagano City, Otari Village, Shinano Town, and Iizuna Town. Although its total area is rather small, uniquely-shaped mountains are densely packed, and a distinctive landscape which consists of plateaus dispersed at the foot of the mountains, lakes and swamps such as Lake Nojiri is one of many great charms found here. Its mountain formation is diverse, including volcanic mountain range, calderas, non-volcanic independent high peaks, and mountain range. Mountain worship is also thriving in each region.

If you are into visiting spiritual places, this is a must see.
Unfortunately, you will need access to a car but definitely worth it.
The Togakushi Shrine is at the base of Mount Togakushi. There are a total of 5 shrines so if you want to visit all 5, make sure you give yourself enough time and go early (1 day trip). It is quite a bit of a hike, so be prepared to walk and purchase the Shrine stamp book so you can get all 5 shrines stamped.
It is said that you should start with the Oku-sha (upper shrine) and then the Kuzuryu-sha upon arrival.

If you are hungry and love noodles, have some amazing soba. The water is so clean you can drink tap water or fill your own bottle.

I have yet to visit Myoko area in the winter time but I would like to visit next winter for Ski.

I went hiking and snowshoeing along the Togakushi Shrine trail. I haven't seen trees as big as the ones here since visiting California decades ago...It's such a beautiful and peaceful hike with great tales of its beginning. I went with a local guide, which made the experience even more rich.

This area is also known for soba -- highly recommend taking a soba making class or grabbing some soba for lunch or dinner somewhere along the day or two visiting the area! Since I've gone in the winter, next I'd like to check it out in the summer since there are camp grounds in the park!

Myoko-Togakushi Renzan National Park is a national park located on the border between Niigata and Nagano prefectures. We visited the park, home to mountain worship, the five Togakushi shrines, and Kagami Pond with Mt. Togakushi towering in the background.
The view from Kagami Pond was particularly spectacular. The pond is located on a plateau at an altitude of 1,200m, so we visited in late May, right in the season of fresh greenery, and the combination of the fresh greenery, the sharp teeth of Mt. Togakushi, and the tranquil Kagami Pond were stunning.
