It hasn't changed since the past: here is a beautiful, magnificent nature, the gift of fertile land and the vibrance of traditional festivals. There is the heart of hospitality to cherish people.There are also affluent foods, well-known hot springs as well as secluded hot springs, Sake and relish in rich variations too.
