In Kakunodate, famous for its historic samurai houses, you can find several simple guesthouses, especially near the train station. A number of private lodges, inns, and dormitory-style hostels lie scattered in the surrounding hills, mostly close to ski slopes and mineral hot springs.

  • I love this place. From Tazawako station you can easily access the valley with taxi. + In autumn it's super beautiful and offers a lot of great sights especially the Migaeri waterfall. - Unfortunately the path is rather short. You don't need to spend a lot of time here.
  • A good place to visit during Autumn. The blue water and crimson leaves combines beautifully. There's also a beautiful waterfall.
  • The color of river is stunning cobalt blue in summer and colors of leaves are beautiful in the end of October.
  • Dakigaeri gorge. Absolutely beautiful in any season (although treacherous in winter - best avoided). Unbelievable turquoise waters. Spectacular autumn colours. You can walk all the way up to the damn.
  • Gorge walk to a waterfall. Good for the Autumn colours.
