  • It is a river which flows to the Pacific Ocean from Lake towada. You can enjoy very difficult mountain Oirase Gorge known along the way. From easy parallel to national highway, but unfortunately many cars to be congestion during the tourist season, there is a catch. If no traffic jams, perfectly clean Vista though

  • You also can't only by private car traffic around the city quickly compensated. May and October leaves are recommended. It is recommended because hotels are rare in the area, enjoy the overnight food in Hachinohe.
