Kuroyachi Wetland

Hachimantai City

Central Iwate

From the Kuroyachi bus stop, walk along the gentle promenade for about 15 minutes to reach the Kuroyachi Wetland. The pond, which reflects the blue sky and white clouds, was created when ejecta from a volcano blocked the flow of a river. On the banks of a quiet wetland surrounded by a forest of Japanese fir trees, alpine plants such as daylily, chinese plovers, goldenrod, and cottontail are in full bloom. The water hole called ``Kuma no Izumi'' is a great place to take a break.
