  • I visited here for the first consecutive holiday in November. It seems that it was warm this year, so it was not dyed red, but the colorful autumn leaves are also beautiful. During the fall foliage season, the parking lot next to the rest house is charged (500 yen per day), but there are some free parking lots on the way to Sendai City. If you are walking along the Ofukazawa Promenade, there is a free parking lot just in front of the entrance of the promenade, so I think it is efficient to stop there and come around with the promenade - rest house - parking lot. The Ofukazawa Promenade takes about 50 minutes. On the way, there is only one up-down to get down to the swamp, and the others are almost flat. If you go down to the retrospective bridge from the rest house, you can look up at the Ofukasawa Bridge, but even though it is about 350meter one way, it is almost a stairway, so you will be pretty tired. From Ofukazawa Bridge, you can see a train passing through it for about an hour leaving (or entering) the tunnel. You can also see the train from the observation deck at the far end of the rest house, but you can't see it at all if there are a lot of people. In Rest House, there was a Japanese confectionery shop called "Fukase" in Naruko Onsen called "Kuri Dango". There is not much parking lot in Naruko Onsen, so it was good to buy it here.

  • We visited the first day of the three consecutive holidays in early October for the purpose of autumn leaves. Because of the consecutive holidays, there were so many tourists lined up with toilets. It is an impression that it is amazing even though it is Tohoku. It was a very regrettable thing that it was closed though it was not clear whether the tourist increased or there was an accident though it was an image that the walking path / promenade along the river which had passed through the valley had been liberated for several kilometers when it remembered several decades ago. (Because there was also a personally light trekking purpose)

  • It was just raining, so I stopped the car and went to see it. If you have time, I think it's a good idea to take a walk along the observation deck and promenade. It might turn red a little more, but it was beautiful enough.
