There is much water accumulating on the summit of Mount Chokai, which is located in Akita Prefecture and included as one of the 100 Famous Mountains in Japan. The water is divided into three cascades: first cascade, second cascade and third cascade. As they descend quickly from the top, the scene is a magnificent spectacle. This is famous Hottai Falls. In early fall, with fall foliage covering the mountain, there is more picturesque scenery here than one can take in and hence here has become the location for many movies and televisions in Japan.

Many of the travelers visiting Japan in the springtime are seeking out the beautiful pink blooms of cherry blossoms. This time we will be introducing shiba-sakura, or moss phlox, which spreads a carpet of pink blooms on the ground rather than on trees. The “2019 Fuji Shiba-sakura Festival,” where you’ll be able to fully enjoy these beautiful flowers, will be taking place from April 13th (Saturday) until May 26th (Sunday), 2019, at Fuji Motosuko Resort (Minamitsuru-gun, Yamanashi Prefecture).
Enjoy the uniquely beautiful scenery that you can only find while cherry blossoms are in bloom with Tohoku’s unique nature and historic buildings as the backdrop. Additionally, we will also introduce a convenient and great-value travel path that will make your trip easy!
