( Small Notes for the Issue )

Azumino is famous for its beautiful nature especially in early spring when the reflection of the snowy mountains on paddy fields is brilliant.
The song "Soushunfu ( song of the early spring )" was written by Yoshimaru Kazumasa inspired by the beauty of Azumino.
Soushunfu song festival is annually held in April in the town.
