This 711-meter mountain is at the boundary between Kesennuma City and the former town of Motoyoshi. It's very famous for viewing azaleas from the middle to the end of May when the whole place bursts into a beautiful scene of red and green. With about 500,000 plants covering a range of 50 hectares, the colorful scenery reaches from the mountain summit to the Pacific Ocean. It takes about 45 minutes from the trail head to the summit, making it accessible to beginners as well, assuming they have the proper clothing and other hiking items. Expect big crowds on Saturdays and Sundays during the season. If you want to take your time and enjoy it, we recommend going on weekdays.
