Mt. Hachimantai Summit八幡平山頂

Mountain

Mt. Hachimantai sprawls almost equally in Hachimantai City, Iwate Prefecture and Akita Prefecture. Due to its rather un-mountain-like shape, in 1962 Iwate Prefecture added soil to the mountain to improve its look. The top of the mountain is a cool 15° C even in the middle of summer, Hachiman Swamp, the largest swamp in Hachimantai, is lush with Asian skunk cabbage, hare's-tail cottongrass, and other alpine plants. The beautiful clear blue waters of the Hachimantai Dragon Eye pond from which it gets its name can only be seen during the season of fresh green leaves in spring.

          Iwate Main Areas

          A northern Tohoku prefecture promising peace and quiet, Iwate is sparsely populated, replacing people with snow-capped mountains, history-rich sites, and fields of crops that are to thank for the region's delicious local cuisine. Meander along the three-city Golden Route, where you'll visit the grand Buddhist temples of Hiraizumi and the Tono folk villages before tasting the three famed noodle dishes of Morioka.
