Experience the Unparalleled Beaty of Nature with japan tohoku tours
If you are planning a trip to Japan, you can’t miss the visit to Tohoku, which is a stunning place indeed. Akita, Aomori, Iwate, Yamagata, Miyagi, and Fukushima are the six prefectures that constitute Tohoku. You will find the hot springs, the ancient castles, snowy mountains, and the mountain temples as well. You can start with the Onsens in the snow. You will experience an unforgettable bath in the outdoor hot spring with the snow falling all around between the Aomori and Akita mountains. The NyutoOnsen-Kyo has seven onsens offering traditional indoor and outdoor pools. The samurai lodges are also famous for guest accommodation.
Cherry blossom and Hirosaki Castle
If you want to see the fascinating display of architecture from the 17th century, visit the Hirosaki castle with five storeys. But a lightning strike destroyed the upper storeys leaving only three storeys intact. The castle is now 70 meters away from its original position as the foundations are having reinforcements. Select the japan tohoku tours that will include the castle visit. You will also see the famous cherry blossom where almost 2,500 cherry blossom trees are in full bloom during the springtime. It s a surreal experience, and the place is an absolute paradise for the photographers.
Yama-Dera Mountain temple
The Yama-Dera or Risshaku-Ji Mountain Temple is in the Yamagata prefecture. The temple was built in 860 under the administration of the Buddhist Tendai set. The stunning mountain background makes the view ethereal for the tourists. You have to climb 1000 steps to reach the temple. The climb is worth every step as what you get to see will be a treasure for the lifetime. The incredible view of the valley below from the Godaido Hall is beyond description. The famous poet Basho wrote a poem here that describes the silence and stillness of Yama-Dera.
