Appi plateau secondary beech forest

Hachimantai City

Central Iwate

This is exactly what a green shower is all about. The ``secondary beech forest'' that spreads across the Appi Highlands is a beech forest that has been beautifully regenerated by the power of nature after being felled. The beautiful sunlight filtering through the leaves sways, and the sound of the treetops rustling in the wind tickles my ears. If you follow the trekking course starting from Buna Station, there will be no undergrowth and there will be guide signs every 25 meters, so you won't get lost even in sudden fog. One of the top 100 forests for forest bathing in Japan.
