TOURISM INFORMATION

  • Snow Monkeys

    Jigokudani is a home of the world-famous "snow monkeys". 200 or so Japanese Macaque monkeys inhabit the area and despite the harsh conditions (snow-covered for one-third of the year) and the rough cliffs and hot springs bursting from the ground, the area is paradise for the monkeys. The reason is that hot spring water collects in pools that the monkeys enjoy bathing in. This provides an opportunity for us humans to watch the Macaque up close and observe their fascinating behavior.

  • Matsumoto Castle

    Matsumoto's namesake castle is the oldest existing castle in Japan and is recognized as a National Treasure. The contrasting black and white plaster of the exterior stands out boldly against the magnificent backdrop of the Japanese Alps. Built with many unique architectural elements, Matsumoto Castle also features a moon viewing pavilion, indicative of the lifestyle of the feudal lords.

  • Daio Wasabi Farm

    Wasabi can only be grown in the purest, cleanest water, and Azumino is blessed with sparkling clean spring water fed by snowmelt from the Japanese Alps. The Daio Wasabi Farm takes advantage of this natural bounty and grows some of the highest quality Japanese horseradishes. The farm itself is a pleasure to stroll through and offers many wasabi-related creations including wasabi flavored soft serve ice cream. In the vicinity are some romantic waterwheels made famous in director Kurosawa Akira’s movie “Dreams”.
