Kitakami City

Southern Iwate

The mountainside is covered with beech forests, and the area around the wetlands and marshes is a treasure trove of alpine plants. If you follow the course from Natsuyu Onsen to Mt. Kyozuka, you will soon reach a turning point to Mt. Ushigata. After passing through a beech forest, passing through a wetland, and passing a steep climb on the way, you will arrive at a flower garden with flowers such as goldenrod. It takes about 15 minutes to reach the top of the mountain. Altitude: 1,340m. The journey takes approximately 2 and a half hours. After coming down from the mountain, we recommend taking a leisurely soak in the famous Natsuyu Onsen.
