    This dogtooth violet colony is located in the Yasugasawa area of Nishiwaga Town, Waga County. There are three colonies scattered about, and they usually bloom from around late April. In addition to the adjoining Asian skunk-cabbage colony, you can also enjoy the sight of the Asian fawn lilies and North Japanese hill cherry trees blooming at the same time.

Iwate Areas


A northern Tohoku prefecture promising peace and quiet, Iwate is sparsely populated, replacing people with snow-capped mountains, history-rich sites, and fields of crops that are to thank for the region's delicious local cuisine. Meander along the three-city Golden Route, where you'll visit the grand Buddhist temples of Hiraizumi and the Tono folk villages before tasting the three famed noodle dishes of Morioka.
