At an altitude of 1,400 meters, a boardwalk lets you walk around the gently rolling area in 60 minutes. You can drive to the eighth station, making it easy to observe over 130 kinds of alpine plants including Asian skunk cabbage and flowers like nikkokisuge.

Yamagata Main Areas


Although often overlooked, Yamagata prefecture by no means lacks appeal: the Yamadera temple trail through the mountains, deliciously tender Yonezawa wagyu, and over 100 steaming hot springs, most notably Zao Onsen, await visitors. When winter comes, the snowcapped peaks become dotted with skiers by day and onsen-goers by night, while summer brings the celebration of juicy Yamagata cherries.
