The landscape of the early summer, in the Azumino area, Nagano,Japan.
In Azumino, there’re? liberal pure streams (Azusagawa-River,etc.), spring water,so, Azumino becomes the production centers of wasabi.
In Daio-wasabi-farm, which is famous for sightseeing spot, there is a water mill ,used as the Akira Kurosawa’s films.
And, the stone Buddha statues, traveler’s guardian deities ,are standing? around the Azumino area.
When I visited there, in the early summer, I could enjoy seeing the mountains, including Mt.Hotaka, reflected in the water.
