Settled just below the Japanese Alps, Azumino is surrounded by gorgeous nature. Hike up Mount Tsubakuro or visit some of the local museums. Finish your day by rewarding yourself with a well-deserved soak in an onsen, a traditional hot spring!
The easiest way to get around in Azumino is by car, since many of the major sights and attractions are not accessible by public transportation. Though, since Azumino is located quite rurally, it is best to rent a car ahead from one of the bigger destinations close by. You can use our car rental widget in the FAQ menu below.
We recommend staying in Azumino for about one day.
The hiking season in this area typically runs from Spring until Autumn.
