Goshikigahara Guided Tour
The Kamoshika Course goes through the middle of a forest with many Japanese wingnut trees. The path has many ups and downs. You think you hear the roaring sound of a waterfall, and the next moment, a magnificent waterfall suddenly appears from between the trees.
The conditions around the waterfall are too harsh for plants to grow, with many sharp rocks and little soil. In spite of these circumstances, herbaceous plants that prefer the waterside bloom beautifully as though celebrating a short summer. This space offers a different air from the middle of the forest.
The Shirabiso Course offers a variety of sceneries depending on the season. In spring, the ponds scattered throughout the area are full of meltwater from Mt. Norikura, and reflect the green mountains and blue sky in beautiful contrast. Serenity reigns here. While strolling around the ponds, visitors can enjoy two courses: A course with few ups and downs, where you can see and hear water streaming through the mushroom-covered rocks, and a course where you can see the beautiful flowering plants of Wasabidaira Wetlands.
