We will provide information on content such as nature experiences, cultural and historical experiences, etc. that allow visitors to experience the charms of the three national parks in the Tohoku region (Towada-Hachimantai National Park, Sanriku Reconstruction National Park, and Bandai-Asahi National Park). The business meetings will be conducted by local rangers and providers for each park, so please specify the national park or area for which you would like to request information.
Towada Hachimantai National Park
Towada-Hachimantai National Park is located in the mountainous region of Aomori, Akita, and Iwate prefectures and consists of two areas with different characteristics: the Towada-Hachimantai area, which includes Mount Hakkoda, Lake Towada, and the Oirase mountain stream, and the Hachimantai area, which includes Mount Hachimantai, Mount Akita Komagatake, and Mount Iwate. The Towada-Hachikoda area, represented by the mystical beauty of Lake Towada, the gentle and clean Oirase Stream, and Mt. Hakkoudai, famous for its ice trees, can be likened to "stillness," while the Hachimantai area, one of the most volcanic areas in Japan, can be compared to "movement. The many lakes, marshes, and wetlands created by volcanic activity and heavy snowfall over a long period of time allow visitors to feel the breath of the living earth. The park is dotted with various hot springs such as Sangayu, Nyuto, Steamake-no-yu, and Tamagawa, which are rich in hot spring water and have different qualities of spring water, and still attract many visitors who stay for long periods of time as in the past. The "stay as you live" style of hot-spring cures is refreshing for modern travelers who are often busy moving from point to point, and has recently been attracting attention as an ideal "workcation" place.
Sanriku Fukko National Park
Sanriku Reconstruction National Park was established in May 2013 to contribute to the reconstruction of the Sanriku area damaged by the Great East Japan Earthquake. The northern part of the park is covered with magnificent cliffs known as the "Alps of the Sea," while the southern part is covered with the beautiful Rias coastline with its intricate topography. The "Michinoku Shiokaze Trail," a 1,000-km long trail, is attracting a great deal of interest from Japanese adventure tourism enthusiasts and attracts hikers who enjoy the reconstruction of the region and the opportunity to meet the local people. The Michinoku Shiokaze Trail, a 1,000-km long trail, is attracting a lot of interest from Japanese adventure tourists.
Bandai-Asahi National Park
Bandai-Asahi National Park is the second largest national park in Japan in terms of land area, covering a vast area including the three mountains of Dewa, the Asahi mountain range, the Iide mountain range, the Azuma mountain range, Mount Bandai, and Lake Inawashiro. The three mountains of Dewa are famous as places of mountain worship and have a cultural and historical charm woven by people and mountains. The Iide and Asahi mountain ranges retain a highly pristine natural environment, and visitors are welcomed by mountain scenery surrounded by majestic mountains, and the flower fields that they reach after a long approach are filled with tenderness. The Azuma mountain range and Bandai-san area are attractive for their powerful landscapes created by volcanoes, beautiful and varied landscapes with large and small lakes and marshes and young nature that continues to grow, and the history of nature and people from the eruption to the present day. The park is also easily accessible from urban areas, and attracts many visitors as a vacation destination where they can enjoy a wide range of activities throughout the four seasons, including mountain climbing, trekking, hot spring bathing, skiing, camping, cycling, canoeing, SUP, fishing, and cultural experiences and work vacations. Bandai-Asahi National Park is full of natural and cultural attractions, such as the spectacular scenery of deep forested mountains with fresh greenery in spring and autumn leaves in fall, powerful volcanic regions, lakes and marshes filled with abundant water, and the history of mountain worship and people's lives that have been passed down through generations.
