Devise your own early morning tour in the Towada-Hachimantai National Park – and enjoy breakfast while contemplating the majestic beauty of its volcanic landscapes.
Early risers and nature lovers are in for a treat. Thanks to a new activity offered by Hoshino Resorts Oirase Keiryu Hotel, you can explore the Towada-Hachimantai National Park in a unique way. Simply choose your preferred itinerary and then follow a local guide to discover the park in the early hours before most people hit the trails.
The new “National Park Early Morning Premium Tour” offers you a chance to see the rugged beauty of one of Japan’s most famous national parks. Located in the Tohoku Region on the northern tip of Honshu, Towada-Hachimantai is known for its volcanic mountains, thick beech forests, crystal-clear lakes and natural hot spring baths.
Thanks to a local guide, you’ll discover secluded spots unknown to most visitors. And, because the tour is organized in the early hours, you’ll be walking – or canoeing – in the calm of your natural surroundings.
Breakfast is prepared for you – and you decide where and when to eat it. How about after a leisurely walk along the Oirase Stream? Or onboard a canoe in the middle of a lake?
Whatever you choose, you’ll enjoy fresh summer ingredients in your “Forest Morning Plate”, composed of two tasty toasted sandwiches.
All that remains is to choose from the six different tours:
– Watch the sunrise from a canoe on Towada Lake
– Discover Akanuma Lake, the clearest water in Honshu
– Enjoy panoramic views from Ohanabeyama Observatory
– Explore the Tashirotai Wetlands
– Walk through atmospheric morning fog in beech forests
– Explore the shores of Tsutanuma, one of the Tsuta Seven Lakes
