Hokuto-shi is surrounded by rich nature.
It is well-known as a comfortable area to live due to the large difference in elevation from the surrounding mountain region. On top of that, it has unique assets including the longest daylight duration in Japan and the largest production of still water in the country. It also produces high-quality fruits and other crops as well as high-quality wine and other distilled/brewed liquor that are made from those crops, which is known across the country. Moreover, it is a place with landscapes distinct to Japan, such as the mountains of the Southern Alps, a peek of Mt. Fuji over the mountain ridge and a breathtaking starry sky.
“There is no bigger potential as a place to enjoy the arts and music.” That is the starting point of this project.
