The "Yamae chestnuts," which are grown throughout the village for the purpose of revitalizing the village, have a fruit twice as large as ordinary chestnuts and are characterized by their deep sweetness and rich flavor, as well as their high sugar content. The chestnuts are highly valued for their quality and were presented to the Emperor Showa in 1977.
