Arashiyama in the back

Iwate Town

Central Iwate

This course is a nature trail with a total length of 8.9 km from Kawahara Shinden in Iwate Town to Numamiyachi Inari Shrine. The area around Mt. Kobo, which is climbed from the starting point of Kawahara Shinden, has beautiful autumn leaves and is called the ``Arashiyama of the Oku'' because the scenery resembles Arashiyama in Kyoto. As you cross the Tohoku Main Line and proceed east, you will find yourself walking through a coniferous forest. Near the end of the trail, there are historical sites such as the Numamiyachi Magistrate's Office Ruins and the Numamiyachi Castle Ruins, and the walking course takes approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes. Best time to see autumn leaves: Late September to mid-October
