Towada-Hachimantai National Park十和田八幡平国立公園
This national park is located in the mountainous region of northern Honshu. The scenery of the beautiful Mt. Iwate, also called the Mt. Fuji of the Nanbu area as well as Lake Towada and the Oirase-Keiryu (a mountain stream), known as a Special Place of Scenic Beauty and also designated as a Natural Monument, is spectacular. The region bustles with sightseers especially in the seasons of new green growth and autumn leaves. Mt. Hakkoda at the northernmost tip of the Ou Mountain Range boasts one of the deepest snowfalls in the country and you can enjoy mountain skiing in winter. There are several visitor and information centers within the park introducing climbing routes and exhibiting materials on nature and the Towada-Hachimantai National Park ecosystem. Towada Visitor Center provides multilingual pamphlets.
