Matsukawa Village in Kitaazumi District of Nagano Prefecture is a nature filled region that is home to wild bell crickets.

That is why this region is called "Suzumushi no Sato" (home of the bell crickets).

In the evening, the cool tone of bell crickets chirping vibrates throughout the village. This is one of the few places where you can leisurely enjoy the harmony of the bell crickets out in nature.

Let's go listening to the sound of bell crickets chirping!

Matsukawa Village in Kitaazumi District of Nagano Prefecture is called "Suzumushi no Sato" (home of the bell crickets).

Unlike the big cities, where you do not see crickets anymore, this nature filled region is inhabited by wild bell crickets. (They are called bell crickets because their chirping sounds sound like a bell.)

Once, the cool tone of bell crickets chirping starts vibrating throughout the village in the evening, it is a sign that fall has arrived. Listening to the beautiful sounds of the bell crickets chirping as you walk through this village will be a wonderful experience.

The rich nature that the bell crickets grow up in is all because of the clear stream flowing down from the Northern Alps mountain range. After a long day, how about enjoying the delicious fruits and vegetables grown in this region with its beautiful water and air.

Eating a Matsukawa Village apple, while listening to the cool tones of the bell crickets in a place where time flows slowly is sure to bring back memories of happy times.
