Hike on the Senjogahara Marshland

Recommended
This 5km hiking trail crosses the 400ha of the Senjogahara Marshland and connects the Yudaki Waterfall to the Akanuma Nature House. At an elevation of about 1 400m, it follows the peaceful Yugawa River. Through the diversity of its alpine fauna and flora, it will delight nature lovers, especially ornithologists. A boardwalk a metre above the ground allows you to observe the wetland and the magnificent scenery of cotton plants, Japanese meadowsweet, azaleas... with, in the background, the mountain covered with conifers. In winter, snow covers the entire area of this exceptional biotope.

Our reports

Okunikko’s natural assets

In the upper reaches of the sacred city, the mountainous region of Okunikko is stunning in every season. While the cedars planted in the late 17C serve as a backdrop for the temples and shrines down in the valley, at altitude the lakes, moors and rivers surrounding Lake Chuzenji complement the perfectly formed cone of the Nantai volcano to create a fabulous landscape.
