Nakatsugawa Valley

Nakatsugawa Valley - A memorable view is waiting for you.

The valley is famous for its beautiful fall foliage. The Nakatsugawa River is a clear stream flowing down from Bandai Kogen (Bandai Highland) to Lake Akimoto. In autumn, the leaves of the many trees, such as maples, alders, and wild cherry trees, turn to their brilliant full colors. The valley can be reached via the lakeside cycling road or by following the trail from the Lake Line Parking Area. Take a relaxing stroll along the ravine while breathing in the mountain air full of healthy negative ions.
