Fall on Mount Hakkoda

While you can see some lovely fall colors down in the cities now, the seasons have been been rapidly changing up in the mountains. I have gotten several chances to travel around Mt. Hakkoda over the last couple of weeks. Let’s take a look at some of the best fall views around the mountain.

The first spot I would like to highlight is the area around Jogakura Bridge. The bridge itself is the longest arch support bridge in Japan, but it is best known for its views of the Jogakura-Keiryu Streams and Towada-Hachimantai National Park.

Next, let’s look at some of the areas that can only be reached via a hiking trail. These are the trails between Sukayu Onsen, Mt. Odake, and Mt. Akakura.

Finally, I would like to direct you to some of my 360° photos. One was taken on the same trail as the pictures above. Another was taken at Suirennuma Pond. And the final one was taken in Oirase Gorge.

 

One more thing! We are going to be doing the Winter Holidays Photo Competition again this year. So, make sure to add a camera to your list of things to bring as you plan out what you are going to do with your time off.
