Introducing Azumino

The city of Azumino was formed in 2005, when the towns of Akashina, Hotaka, Toyoshina and three smaller villages amalgamated. It's also the traditional name of the picturesque valley in which they're located. An easy daytrip from Matsumoto, the area is home to Japan's largest wasabi farm and is a popular starting point for mountain hikes.
