Straight Out of a Fairy Tale

Azumino is home to some of Japan's greatest authors. It's no surprise that such a beautiful home would spawn so many authors who wrote about their picturesque birthplace. There are numerous art museums and places to try your hand at traditional art including glass-making, soba noodles, balloons, fruit-picking and ceramics. There are also chance to get a little more active with go-karts, golf and cycling.
