This picturesque spot is also known as Tohoku’s Yabakei. They say the name, meaning “returned embrace,” comes from the trails so narrow, two people couldn’t pass “without embracing.” It’s now designated part of Tazawako Dakigaeri Prefectural Natural Park. With its well-maintained trails, waterfalls of various size, and brilliant red suspension bridge, it offers a variety of pleasures. Currently, the trail is closed past Mikaeri Falls due to fallen rocks. In addition. the trails are closed every year from late November to late April due to heavy snow.

Famed for its sake and samurai, Akita prefecture offers quintessential Japanese culture in a non-touristy setting. Alongside the celebrated rice paddies and historical sites of the region lies dramatic natural scenery in the form of the rugged coastline of the Oga Peninsula and the Dakigaeri Gorge, best visited in autumn, when the leaves begin to change color.
