  • A mountain stream that runs from Mt. Yakiyama to Konoguchi in the Okuinose River, which flows from Lake Towada to the Pacific Ocean. There are attractions in each of the four seasons, and it is a place with a lot of tourists, but it is a place where you can taste nature only with minimal maintenance. Just by looking at the wonderful scenery while receiving a lot of negative ions, there is no doubt that it will be healed very much.

  • Because it is a mountain stream which flows by the national highway, a very beautiful scenery can be enjoyed in the immediate distance from the parking lot. I think that it is easy to enjoy even the person who does not have confidence to walk.
