Sansai Picking in Nagano
Go out in the verdant mountains to find tasty wild plants
The mountains surrounding Lake Nojiri overflow with edible wild plants called "sansai." At first glance these plants look like typical wild weeds, but these mountain vegetables are absolutely delicious to eat. Once you start picking, you will find almost fifty different kinds of common edible plants and find yourself absorbed in the activity! Join in on the hiking tour and pick sansai as a guide drives guests to breathtaking mountains in spring.
When to go: April through June
