Summer has come!

30th July


Rainy season “Tsuyu” has finished yesterday, And the summer has come.

It is very nice season to go trekking to Japan alps mountains, and enjoy rural view.

The height around here is about 500m above sea level, so 2-3℃ cooler than sea level area.

We are looking forward to meeting you, here Azumino !

messenger of spring

I met the “messenger of spring” in the guesthouse garden.


The air temperature becomes warmer , day by day.

I think cherry blossoms around here will be bloomed in this weekend.


Even if you missed cherry watching (Hanami) in Tokyo,

You still have chance to enjoy it around here! Come on!
