Sightseeing Spot Spots in Yuzawa / Uonuma / Tokamachi Area

  • Tsunan Himawari Plaza
    Travel / Tourism
    Nigata Pref. Nakauonumaguntsunanmachi Ashigasaki
    Starting with some young famers, the Tsunan Himawari Plaza is filled with about 500,000 himawari (dandelions) across a four-hectare area from late July to late August. A number of exciting events are held during this time, including local street stall events, dandelion mazes, a temporary lookout, and a photo contest. The dandelion was designated as the town flower through vote of residents during the 50-year anniversary of Tsunan town. Approximately 15 minutes by car from JR Tsunan Station.
  • Ryugakubo
    Travel / Tourism
    Nigata Pref. Nakauonumaguntsunanmachi Yachi
    Ryugakubo spring, located in Yachi, Tsunan-machi, gushes forth from the Tsunan valley and has been selected as one of Japan's top 100 springs. The spring comes up from the Naeba volcanic layer at the rate of 30tons per minute. This incredible rate of turnover means that the water never muddies or clouds and the spring has become an intrinsic part of everyday life as a source of water for local residents. The Japanese beech trees and Mongolian oaks that surround the spring give it a mystical quality and there are many legends of dragons associated with the pond. The pond is an easy one-minute walk from the parking lot but as you continue around to the rear you'll find the Ryugakubo-jinja Shrine. The shrine draws lots of visitors and there you can ladle some of the spring water for yourself.
  • Oritate Shakado Skin Healing Spring
    Travel / Tourism
    Niigata Uonuma-shi Shimoritate 93
    This clear hot spring bubbles out of Shakado in the highland overlooking Mt. Echigo-Komagatake near Oritate Hot Spring. Legend has it that the nun who was plagued by numerous warts on her body was completely healed after bathing in this spring. It is still widely known as “The Magic Wart Healing Spring” or “The Beautiful Skin Water.” Many people visit this spring as a sort of side trip while walking around at Oritate Hot Spring.

    Niigata Nakauonuma-gun Tsunanmachi Akinari 12300

    ニューグリーンピア津南スキー場ではスキー場がオープンしている期間中、スカイランタン打ち上げ体験を実施しています。津南雪祭りの当日のランタンの打ち上げ数である2000個と比べると、それ以外の日に打ち上げられるランタンの数は50個程度と少ないですが、真っ暗な空に上っていくランタンは幻想的で一見の価値があります。 ランタンは1個1000円です。
