A Kurikoma Sanso
This is accommodation popular for its open air bath with an excellent view. It is located close to Sukawa Lake and Mt. Kurikoma.
B Sukawa Lake
This is a highland area located on the border of Iwate Prefecture and Miyagi Prefecture. It is home to wonderful fall leaves.
This is a V-shaped valley. It was made by the rapids of the Minase River deeply eroding both its banks over many years.
D Doroyu Onsen & Kawarage Jigoku
Doroyu-Onsen · Kawarage-Jigoku
It is said that Doroyu-Onsen was opened 1,200 years ago. This is a hot spring with landscapes unchanged since ancient times. On the other hand, Kawarage-Jigoku is one of Japan's three major sacred grounds. The rugged slope provides an ominously desolate scene.
This is a valley at the entrance to Kawarage-Jigoku. It is truly a sheer precipice, so it is called "Sanzu River" (Crossing to the Underworld).
This over-track station has the concept of a warm station lit up in color that inherits a delicate and elegant history. The triangular roof design familiar as the symbol of the former station building has been inherited in the appearance designed in the image of the white walls of the many sake breweries found in Yuzawa.
