Things to do: historic sites, nature, baths
Established in 2005 by the merging of several towns and villages, Semboku boasts an Old Japan atmosphere, punctuated by traditional onsen resorts, old samurai houses, and weeping cherry trees. A trip to Semboku lets you get in touch with nature: several surrounding mountains offer popular hiking destinations, and a scenic lake makes a perfect boating and picnic spot. While tourism in Semboku peaks during cherry blossom season, the town offers skiing opportunities in winter, when snow covers its forested hills and mountains.
