    Yamagata Mogami-gun Okuramura Minamiyama
    This cave is located in Okura Village, Mogami County. Situated in the middle of Mt. Jizomoriyama, there is a promenade to it from Hijiori Onsen. It is said that an old monk who appears in legends about the Hijiori Onsen used to live there, and that you can find luck in love or business by making a pilgrimage to the site.

Yamagata Areas


Although often overlooked, Yamagata prefecture by no means lacks appeal: the Yamadera temple trail through the mountains, deliciously tender Yonezawa wagyu, and over 100 steaming hot springs, most notably Zao Onsen, await visitors. When winter comes, the snowcapped peaks become dotted with skiers by day and onsen-goers by night, while summer brings the celebration of juicy Yamagata cherries.
