Mount Urira

Iwaizumi Town


``Ureira'' means ``mountain with a lot of mist or mist'' in the Ainu language. It is common to aim for the summit from the Wasan Forest Road, but you can also climb Mt. Ontoko along the ridge to the northwest. Mount Urira, which includes Ryusendo Cave, one of Japan's three largest limestone caves, is located entirely within typical karst topography. It is also a good idea to visit the nearby limestone caves such as Yasuya Cave and Hito Cave. It takes about 2 hours to reach the summit from the Wasan Forest Road entrance. Altitude: 604m.
