The village is surrounded by the beautiful mountains of the Minami Alps, and the area is covered by Nature's brilliant shades of green. It is sometimes called Japan's Tyrol, because it is located on the middle of a hill, which is similar to villages in Austria's Tyrol region. The colorful autumn leaves are also beautiful.
