Mt. Hachimantai八幡平

Event

A 1,614 meter high volcano designated Towada-Hachimantai National Park and considered one of the 100 most beautiful mountains in Japan. A shield volcano formed by the hardening of soft lava, the flat peak gives it a somewhat unusual shape. Accordingly, instead of the view from the mountain top, visitors can enjoy the fall colors of the grasses in the wetlands near the peak, as well as the colorful Japanese maples and beeches as seen from the Jukai Line and the Hachimantai Aspite Line, a road leading to the top of the mountain. The plants and trees on the mountain start changing color in late September, with the best time to enjoy the foliage lasting until around mid-October.

          Iwate Main Areas

          around-area-map

          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.
