It is the most beautiful place I have ever visited in Japan. Silent, fresh gas and easy to access. If you are planning to go Aomori, dont miss it.

It is a must-go if you like nature. The view and water is gorgeous. Select a start and end to fit your physical condition and company. But be aware there are not many restrooms and water supply along the way.

We went during the late fall winter season and while some of trees had already shed their colourful leaves it was still a mesmerising visit! This is nature at its finest! You can walk along the stream but be prepared to go on foot for...More
