Hachimantai Aspite Line八幡平アスピーテライン
Hachimantai Aspite Line is a 27 kilometer driving course stretches from Iwate prefecture’s Hachimantai Gozaisho district to Akita Prefecture’s Toroko Onsen. It’s only open from mid-April to early November. From the time it opens to late April, the course is lined with snow to create a “Snow Corridor,” and in autumn the fall colors on Mt. Iwate and the surrounding forests offer an overwhelming sight. It’s 35 minutes’ drive from Tohoku Expressway Matsuo Hachimantai Interchange.

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.
