Tonomine Highlands砥峰高原


"A highland area with hiking courses located along the Bantan Renraku Road in Kobe City, Hyogo Prefecture. The highland was used as a filming location for the movie ""Norwegian Wood"" and the historical television dramas ""Taira no Kiyomori"" and ""Gunshi Kanbei."" In spring, the highland is covered in greenery and flowers come into bloom. In summer, cool, refreshing breezes blow, while in winter the landscape is covered in white, powdery snow. In particular, however, the highland is a renowned fall foliage destination, and in autumn some 90 hectares of white tasseled Japanese pampas grass growing on the highland create a stunning spectacle. Each year in March, controlled burns are conducted on the highland; in September, moon-viewing parties are held and in October a Japanese pampas grass festival is celebrated on the plateau."

Hyogo Main Areas


Hyogo prefecture stretches from the north coast to the south coast on the western end of the popular Kansai region, encompassing verdant mountains, urban beaches, and fantastic historical sights. The prefecture's main attractions lie along the south coast at Kobe, the prefectural capital, a pretty harbor city best known for its production of the renowned Kobe beef, and Himeji, the home of Himeji Castle, one of the country's most beautifully preserved feudal castles, perched magically atop a hill.
