Yamagata

3.7
The town of Yamagata and its surrounding prefecture have a wealth of attractions, both man-made and natural. Known for its cherry production, the agricultural fields surrounding the town lead out into a rugged landscape of hills, ravines, and rivers, with ancient temples dotting the land here and there, enjoying privileged viewpoints across the changing terrain. The rural city has a notably large student population, making the atmosphere a little more modern and cutting-edge than in comparably remote cities. Trips to hot spring resorts have become a major part of many Yamagata holidays. Our Japan visit planning app combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.
