is a lovely film, worthy of a look by Western audiences. Follow Yuki as she learns to play the violin in the Nagano (Shinsyu) prefecture. This quaint narrative is enhanced with explosive sequences of cultural traditions unique to this mountainous region of Japan. The theme of Shinsyu Symphony
is the co-existence of nature and human beings. Many precious traditions, such as "Gokaicho" of the Zenkoji Temple held once in seven years are shown along with beautiful scenes of nature's changing seasons.
