I enjoyed the yaki-onigiri (grilled rice-ball) set which came with one topped with miso and one topped with soy sauce. I chose the miso soup with cheese, fried wheat-gluten, and seaweed. The set also included pickles and other sides dishes.

Higashimachi-170 Nagano, Nagano-shi, Nagano-ken 381-0000
Alps Onsen is about a 10 minute walk from Nagano Station's Zenkoji Exit. Although it is not a natural hot spring, this bath house provides a quiet place to warm yourself during the cold Nagano winter. Children under the age of 12 are not allowed to enter. The facility itself is quite old, but the staff are friendly and the changing and bathing areas are clean.
The cost to enter is 380 yen, and towel rentals are free. Payment is made via cash only to the older woman who oversees both the male and female bathing areas (She is able to view both the men's and women's sides).
Unlike at some older hot spring facilities, you will find shoe lockers and lockers for valuables. Shampoo, conditioner, and body soap are not included, so you will need to bring your own or purchase some available on site. Other amenities such as razors are also available for purchase. You can use the hair dryer there for 20 yen.
The bath water is kept very hot in order to help kill bacteria. There are faucets to add cold water, but be sure to try and ask any other bathers first before turning on a faucet. Older bathers especially may become upset that cold water is being added.
Typically you rinse off before entering the bath briefly to warm your body. After this you can then proceed to wash your hair etc. If you are not used to bathing in such hot water, do not remain in for extended periods of time as you may become light-headed.
