Beech Forest in Mt. Hakkoda

There’s a world heritage site Shirakami Sanchi in the western part of Aomori Prefecture, and besides Shirakami, there are other places you can see beautiful beech forest in Aomori. ☆Photo courtesy by TK. Maeda

Photo taken on May 20th.

One of them is located along Prefectural Route 40 in Mt. Hakkoda (takes about 50 minutes from city central and no public transportations to get there).

It’s not certain that a hole around the foot of the tree
is caused by stem temperature or wind.

This is another beautiful scenery in Mt. Hakkoda, Tsuta-numa (numa=marsh). There are 7 marshes in this area, and you can enjoy 90-minute walk along the track surrounding the marshes.

Pretty azalea was in bloom.

In Tsuta, you can also enjoy hot spring staying at “Tsuta Hot Spring Inn” selected as one of Japan’s 100 Best Hot Spring. Unfortunately, there were no photos this time, but I bet it’s a must-visit place if you come to Aomori.
