  • Stone months House has free parking, so leave your car there, walked. Kumoi falls, shiraito falls, 9-tiered waterfall and stream torrent of stone months, Asura, 千筋 falls around, walking briskly slightly to choshi-Otaki, about 1 hour and a half. Autumn doesn't at all, but bracing hike. Return returned by bus from choshi Otaki by month detached stone. I thought it is nice to give back as you guide the way walked, 410 yen a little high.

  • Asked at the end of 11 months. And if you're lucky, because of global warming, the rest of the foliage can be found or have faint hope, was planned. Autumn elegance "Oirase Gorge in the snow" is useless, even some from. On the day we interviewed a few days ago it started to snow in the over snow. Clearly, at least I felt compared with the water of the water flow in the stream, stream flow, and look better in photos. Guide says, the classification "Oirase Gorge" water comes during the winter months and discharged from the Lake towada in half because it is. Oirase Gorge in the snow, meaning air is certainly there was less water, Boardwalk trail is slick with ice. Shoes Jing instead and water immersion Invision comes to do. I felt it after all, "Green Spring" "fall foliage" to come.

Where to stay in Towada

The main accommodations of Towada lie in the downtown area, sitting along the main thoroughfares and narrower streets to the east of the central park. The mixed bag of hotels generally offers Western-style rooms in luxury, standard, and budget options. Most visitors to Towada, however, will look to stay somewhere in the national park, primarily in the areas surrounding hot springs. Look close to the lake and up in the Hakkoda mountains for some of the most characterful spa hotels.
