Central Iwate

Mt. Kurakake, located at the base of Mt. Iwate and with an altitude of 897m, is a hiking course for families where you can easily enjoy climbing. This is the mountain that Kenji Miyazawa loved, and there is a monument to his poem ``Kurakake no Yuki'' next to the parking lot. Mt. Kurakake has been designated by the government as a scenic spot in Ihatov, and its appearance changes spectacularly with each season: spring, summer, autumn, and winter. Please take a look at the majestic view of Mt. Iwate from the summit.
