Mt. Komadashi

Hanamaki City

Southern Iwate

Mt. Komatashira (940m above sea level) is said to be the motif of "Nametokoyama Bear". The mountain climbing courses are the Samuzawagawa Course, which climbs from the Ota Yamaguchi area via a forest road along Samazawa, and the Namazawa Onsen Course, which starts at the Namazawa Onsen Ski Resort. There are also three Dewazawa courses that start from the end of the Dewazawa Forest Road. Whichever course you take, you can enjoy a quiet mountain journey that takes you to the original scenery of the fairy tale ``Nametoko Mountain Bear'' written by Kenji Miyazawa. Additionally, there is an outdoor activity center for learning about nature and outdoor experiences on the shores of the Toyosawa Dam lake at the foot of the mountain, and hot spring inns such as Namida Onsen and Shinmina Onsen along the Toyosawa River.
