Azumino is a playground settled in the Japanese Alps. Azumino is known for alpine trekking and hiking for all levels, but there are nature education centers, museums, and even the tourist office to help you get outdoors and enjoy nature. There is bird watching, nature walking, cycling, fishing, camping, rafting, mountain biking, and even para gliding. Azumino is blessed with all four seasons which means cherry blossoms in the spring, skiing nearby in the Hakuba mountain range in the winter, a landscape of reds and yellows in the fall, and lush greens dotted by colorful flowers in the summer.

Depending on the season there is also fruit picking, vegetable harvesting, traditional crafts and Japanese cooking.
