Hi, Azumino friends!
I was really excited to come across your site. The pictures posted on the site are beautiful. (Are they professionally taken?) Your descriptions on Azumino are concise and to the point. Keep up the great work.
May I make a suggestion? It\'s about the history of Azumino. More than three hundred years ago the Jōkyō Uprising happened in your area. Locals know about the incident and are proud of what Tada Kasuke and his followers did. There is a shrine and a memorial museum commemorating the uprising. Alas! They are the least visited spots in Azumino. For one thing, locals don\'t realize that the legacy of the uprising represents a universal idea; respect for human rights. And for another, locals are too shy to publicize the potential tourist spots.
Please read the Wikipedia articles about Tada Kasuke and the Jōkyō Uprising. Thank you very much.
