Oirase River, Aomori Prefecture

4.6
The only river draining Lake Towada, Oirase River features many rapids and waterfalls running through a forest. At a height of 25 m (75 ft), Kumoi Falls are the highest. Take a walk along streams with many cascades and views of the volcanic lake in the upper part of the river. Many people recommend the 14 km (8 mi) hike, which provides good photo opportunities of natural elements. Virgin forests in the area feature white cedar, Japanese beech, and maple trees.
