Great hike for one/two hrs. However, pay attention if there are bear warning signs. Bring a bear bell regardless in that area.

Mini bus ride within the park. Cycling routes and bike hire available. Plenty of trees and green. Sure you can park your car near the official car park. Its cheaper.

Explored Nagano Togakushi highland,very good and nice trail, the trees not yet turn green, river very clear, part of the mountains still cover with snow, and with very nice weather to trek.

The botanical gardens are next to the top Shrine in Togakushi. It has a small lake and walk-thru gardens. The visitor center hosts ecological information as well as many stuffed animals of the forest.

The Togakushi region is splendid in summer and a place to visit both the spiritual and botanic side of Japan. The extensive gardens provide the perfect opportunity to return to the bus pick up point via a different means rather than the cedar lined walkway...More

The path to Okusha and the cedar trees tends to be quite crowded; take a step off the path and into the botanical garden, and you'll be in a different world.
