Great driving loop is to go to Karuizawa, Onioshidashi Volcano Park, Kusatsu Onsen, Shirane Mtn, Jigokundani Monkey Park, then back through Nagano City, Chikuma and Ueda back to Karuizawa

During winter there in February, the place with warm mist can help you a bit to get away from cold weather. The foot onsen is free for you to try. A must go place, If you is already there as it's a landmark of the town.
