Enjoy excellent hikes across an open green space spreading over four prefectures at Oze National Park, a 372 sq km (143 sq mi) park some 150 km (93 mi) north of Tokyo. Well-maintained trails, spectacular waterfalls, and a huge pond stand out as the highlights of this popular hiking destination. Walk on planks across vast Ozegahara marshes, the most visited part of the park, which sit around 1,400 m (4,593 ft) above sea level. Observe skunk cabbage, yellow lily, red weeds, and colored grass as you walk. In order to preserve the nature, you will walk on logs and planks most of the time. You can stay overnight in the park's small hotel. To visit Oze National Park and other attractions in Japan, use our Japan online day trip planner .

行く当日の市内の気温は36度前後で暑かった！意外に、ここは涼しかった！夕方、宿泊先小豆温泉 花木の宿の露天風呂にゆっくり浸かった後、和食料理が美味しく食べた。和牛しゃぶから岩魚塩焼きまで品種が多かった。夜、24度ぐらい寝心地がよく、ぐっすり寝てた。翌日、大江湿原に行く沿道は珍しい野生の植物が多くて綺麗だった！帰りは疲れたけど、自然風景を満喫した！真っ夏日に一番いい避暑地だと思う。 more »The temperature in the city on the day of the visit was hot around 36 degrees! Surprisingly, it was cool here! In the evening, we soaked slowly in the open-air bath of the accommodation Shobean Onsen Hanagi-no-yado, and then ate delicious Japanese food. There were many varieties from Wagyu shabu to rock fish salt grilled. At night, I slept comfortably about 24 degrees, and slept soundly. The next day, the roadside going to Oe wetland was beautiful with a lot of rare wild plants! I was tired on the way back, but I enjoyed the natural scenery! I think it's the best summer resort on a summer's day.
Mmm. Beautiful in any season. Hiroi
