A relaxing drive along Yamagata’s Mogami River following in the footsteps of the great poet Matsuo Basho

Only 40 minutes by car from Yamagata Station is the prefecture’s most popular scenic spot. From a famous “yamadera,” or mountain temple, you can look down onto Mogami River and Japan’s largest set of rapids. This relaxing drive plan takes you through some stunning nature while following in the footsteps of Japan’s greatest haiku poet, Matsuo Basho (1644–1694). And, of course, there’s lots of great food along the way.
